Photographer's Note

Popa Falls - one of the smallest falls I've ever seen... :o) Popa Falls are situated in the north - eastern corner of Namibia.

The falls are really not much more than a set of rapids on the Okavango River created by a rocky ledge. They have a drop of about 4 metres and extend across the full width of the river and are best viewed during the dry season.

They are an important habitat for two rare fish species; broadhead catfish and ocellated spinyeel. On the south bank of the Okavango River is a restcamp in the diminutive Popa Game Park. Game viewing opportunities are scarce but the bird life is rich.
It is the ideal base from which to explore the Mahango Game Park, with over 450 species of birds recorded.
