Popa Falls

Located on the Kavango River the Popa Falls Resort is situated in an area that in inundated by spectacular natural beauty. It is the ideal spot from which to explore the Mahango Game Park and Popa Falls. Contrary to the name “Popa Falls” are in fact more a series of large rapids rather than waterfalls but they are still a highlight in the Zambezi region of Namibia.

Beautiful woodlands, seasonal swamps, perennial rivers, huge trees, riverine vegetation and floodplains characterise this region and guests can expect to see huge numbers of bird species. Its proximity to Mahango Game Park and Khaudum Game Park make it the perfect resting spot with day trips to either promising great wildlife experiences. wildlife species, including elephant, hippo, buffalo, crocodile, red lechwe, reedbuck, roan and sable antelope, and the elusive Sitatunga antelope can be seen close to the resort.
