Popa Falls Camp is your gateway to the north - eastern corner of Namibia - with its perennial rivers, magnificent indigenous woodlands, riverine forests, floodplains and reed - lined channels. Popa Falls, while more a series of rapids than a waterfall, is situated on the banks of the Kavango River which in turn flows into the Botswana Delta.
Popa Falls is just 15km from the Mahango Game Park making it an ideal base to explore the wildlife in this exceptionally scenic yet remote north eastern section of Namibia with its perennial rivers, magnificent indigenous woodlands, riverine forests, floodplains and reed - lined channels. The Kunene is a popular destination for anglers. Tigerfish, Threespot and Green headed tilapia are just some of the species of game fish that occur in the Kavango River.
Fishermen should bring their own fishing tackle and buy a fishing permit from the office at Popa Falls. The 'falls' are in fact a series of cascades created by a quartzite ledge that causes the river to split into numerous channels. They can be accessed on foot from the rest camp. A wide variety of wildlife species, including elephant, hippo, buffalo, crocodile, red Lechwe, reedbuck, roan and sable antelope, and if you're lucky, even the elusive Sitatunga antelope can be observed in this area. Bird watching in this area is very popular with over 450 species of birds recorded.
