Set on the banks of the mighty Kavango River, Popa Falls Camp is a lovely and comfortable safari camp within an area of outstanding natural beauty.
Accommodations at the camp consist of a campsite, two-Sleeper River Cabins, four-Sleeper River Chalets, and Luxury River Cabins. The cabins and chalets are snuggled up against the riverbank facing the thick forest of Hippo Island. Each chalet includes two twin beds draped in mosquito netting, a dresser, air-conditioning, and an en suite bathroom with a shower. The cabins have similar facilities but include double rooms with an interconnecting door. There is also barbecue facilities outside. For budget travelers, there are ten campsites available and even three larger campsites for groups.
The camp is located on the banks of the Kavango River which in turn flows into the Botswana Delta. It is only nine miles from the Mahango Game Park. This remote region of north eastern Namibia is made up of perennial rivers, magnificent indigenous woodlands, riverine forests, floodplains, and reed – lined channels. The Popa Fall are more of a series of cascades created by a quartzite ledge that causes the river to split into numerous channels. A wide variety of wildlife species lives here including elephant, hippo, buffalo, crocodile, red Lechwe, reedbuck, roan, and sable antelope. It’s also a bird lover’s paradise with over 450 recorded bird species found in the area.
