    Question Ruacana to Epupa Falls

    Hi, we are planning a month long trip to Namibia in June 2024. We are hoping to visit both Ruacana and Epupa Falls, and wondered about the condition of the road/track in between that runs close to the Cunene River. All the comments that I have seen are dated. I am hoping that June should be fine.

    Going via Opuwo looks to be a very long diversion!

    Any comments would be appreciated.

    The road is normally ok, except during the rain season or shortly thereafter.

    Seeing as it is still rain season now, it will be had to predict the road conditions for June.

    However, June is well passed the rain season and any damaged or flooded roads will normally be repaired by then.

    There is one section early on that is usually always a bit of a challenge, but that should be doable then as well.

    So, I am pretty confident you will be ok travelling that route in June.

    The road is fine, there are one or 2 river crossings and depend on the rain might damage the road and u have to detour, give u at least 4 hours min to travel from ruacana to epupa
