To reach us by car you can drive via Ruacana towards Swartbooisdrift or via Opuwo-Otjiveze (RD3700 and RD3701). Please take note however, that the road between Ruacana and Kunene River Lodge can be bad during the rainy season. The road from Kunene River Lodge along the river to Epupa Falls is only accessible by 4-wheel drive vehicles with high clearance.
A 4 x 4 vehicle is highly recommended during the rainy period when driving in the northern areas, and it is advisable to phone the Lodge a day before arrival to enquire about the road conditions – Tel: 065 274 300 or 065 685 016
To reach us when coming from Opuwo - take the DR3700 to Epembe (75 kms) At Epembe turn right on to DR3701 to Swaartbooisdrift (60kms) (There is a sign board saying Kunene River Lodge) After approximately 30kms you will come to the Ondoto River, follow the diversion signs and there is a firm place to cross the river. 30kms further on you come to a t-junction, turn right (4kms) Again there is a sign board for Kunene River Lodge
