Popa Falls Resort

Please note: Our review of this property has not yet been added. Watch this space. We're working on it.

As a tailor-made tour operator, we often have to get creative when designing your perfect itinerary.

For example, your travel consultant might add this property to your itinerary if:

Location is a significant factor
It offers a unique feature that will enhance your experience
This is a last-minute booking and room availability is limited
Cost is a factor and you'd rather splash out on another part of your trip
This is a newly opened or refurbished property that we have not inspected yet

When designing your custom itinerary we have much to consider not least of which is the value proposition of every product and service included in your quote. In all cases we strive to give you the best experience possible within your budget so please feel free to ask your travel consultant to share their reasons for including this property in your itinerary.

Don't be mislead by the grandiose titles that State-run Namibia Wildlife Resorts adopt - Popa Falls Resort is anything but a resort.

In reality, it is a shaded camp on the southern banks of the perennial Kavango River that offers rudimentary reed and thatch self-catering bungalows, and camping sites with communal kitchen and ablutions. You may need to work up an appetite in order to enjoy the restaurant's simple fare; and the store provides basic essentials but don't leave the smoked mussels and crackers behind.

And Popa Falls is actually nothing more than a picturesque series of cascades and channels caused by a kink in the Kavango River; this kink, however, is entirely responsible for the existence of the Okavango Delta in Botswana. You can walk to the cascades from Popa Falls Resort and the whole area is a lush profusion of riverine forest and floodplains - birdsong is ever-present except when you approach the rapids whose soporific rumble all but drowns it out.

Walking trails, birdwatching, fishing, self-guided game drives to the nearby Mahango Game Park

About 15km from the camp is the Mahango Game Park, a rugged and wild reserve with spectacular riverine and woodland scenery. Over 400 species of bird have been recorded in this region and the park supports some rare species of animal including red lechwe, reedbuck, roan and sable antelopes, and the elusive semi-aquatic sitatunga antelope. During the rainy season, access is restricted to 4x4 vehicles only and we recommend you go in two cars.
