Popa Falls Resort

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

Our rating: 1/5 Stars
Location: Caprivi, Namibia

Accommodation Description

In reality, it is a shaded camp on the southern banks of the perennial Kavango River that offers reed and thatch bungalows, and camping sites with communal kitchen and ablutions.

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.

Facilities

10 River Cabins, 6 River Chalets, 4 Luxury Units, 10 Campsites with power supply and communal facilities, restaurant, shop

Activities

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.
