Popa Game Park
R ushing rapids, melodious birdsong and the rustling leaves of shady, riverine trees are sounds that typify Popa Game Park.
Located on the Okavango River opposite the Bwabwata National Park, Popa Falls is famous for its lush setting and the sound of the rapids cascading down the rocky descents in the river.
Over 400 species of birds have been recorded here. Tigerfish, threespot and green-headed tilapia are just some of the game fish that occur in the Okavango River, making it a popular destination for anglers.
