Popa Falls is a nice place with good "Bush" camping sites. The ablutions need attention and cleaning. Although we experience a little bit trouble with showers and toilets not working the stands is separated and surrounded with bush.

We had the chalet furthest away from the restaurant. Although it backed on to the river, it was impossible to see it through the jungle of foliage. The walk to the facilities was not well let so our torch was useful. There is a nice view of the river from the restaurant balcony with kingfishers at play. Food is ok.... More

Lovely chalets, if possible book the luxury suites right on the water's edge, beautifully furnished and awesome deck looking over the river. We were there during full moon and could sit for hours on the deck watching its shimmering and playful glow over the water. However upkeep of camp not so good, lights out and not working on the path... More

The campsite was comfortable and well equipped though simple. We stayed two days, nearby town Divundu not very interesting nearby game Park very good and small enough for a well stocked game drive and great baobab. The restaurant and pool good, very cold. Magical chalets on the river, top choice but we did not stay there. Very friendly service. No... More

The reviews available on the web and Tripadvisor led me to believe this was a good resort. It is not. There is some residual confusion with a previous identity before an upgrade 3 years ago. It is now very expensive and poor value. Sure the chalets are 4-star, but watch out: a "river chalet" is not on the river at... More

Camped here for a night while traveling through from Zambia towards the Skeleton Coast. The camping is inexpensive and the camp sites are nice: relatively private sites, each with a light. While we were staying, there was no running water in the ablutions, but they were quite clean. Good value for the money. We also ate at the restaurant, which... More

Had a delicious lunch at this nice new place. Nice selection of dishes to choose from and some cold drinks on a hot summers day. Food is fine, service is good and the venue is beautiful. Staff friendly. Just a pity the deck overlooking the Kavango River was closed when we were there Really worth the stop.

Nice place to relax next to Okavango River. Watched hippos, crocs and birds from sundowner deck. Restaurant offers nice food and very friendly service. Pool is clean and refreshing after a hot summer day. Chalets are newly build. Comfortable, lovely setting. Great place to stop over. Bring your own groceries if you don't want to eat at the restaurant.

Driving to Poppa Falls/Mahangu/Buffalo Core Areas is always a different experience. When you have Nam Leisure cards its worth taking out a few bucks to spend at Poppa. The service was great, managers, waiters/waitresses were speaking Afrikaans, they were great, the food was lovely even the kids loved it... the atmosphere was great, the trip to Mahangu and Buffalo was...

“Book the luxary rooms with animal names (Hippo, Elephant, Rhino etc) by the rivers edge. Isolated but scenic!”

“New rooms with animal names are superb but not quite finished when we were there. Room 8 had a lovely view across the papyrus beds, most other river view rooms have some trees in front of them which provide shade if that is what you want. The non-river view rooms had an outside cooking facility as well which might be useful to self drive people.”
