The Popa Falls
is position at the knee of the Caprivi Strip, where it is traversed by the Okavango River, flowing from the highlands of Angola to the north to the Okavango Delta in Botswana to the south.

Just to the west of the river, the C48 turns south off the main highway. This road lead to the Botswana border and on down the Okavango Panhandle.

After about 9km the C48 passes the Popa Falls, a pretty if unspectacular set of rapids where the Okavango tumbles around 2.5m over a fault line. The small park around the falls has some pleasant walking trails, whilst the equally modest Mahangu National Park just to the south has some short safari game-drive loops.

There is a cluster of lodges along this stretch of the river, largely catering for budget travellers passing along the Caprivi or cutting down into Botswana.

The best accommodation options in the area are the relatively chic RiverDance Lodge and the rather larger Divava Okavango Lodge.
