Driving the long straight road from Bumhill to N//Goabaca we expected the quality of camping facilities at Goabaca to be of the same high caliber than at the two camps of Nambwa and Bumhill. We were not disappointed by N//goabaca either. Quite the contrary. This camp is a must-stay. Especially if you can get campsite no1 with its own lookout point.
N//Goabaca Camp is definitely the 'perfect location' to view the Popa Rapids.
From here you can see the rapids from nearby while relaxing in your chair on the banks of the clear blue Okavango River.
There are four private campsites, each with its own ablution facilities with hot and cold water, a bush-kitchen, wooden deck that overlooks the Okavango River. A 'donkey' is used to provide hot water for a relaxing shower in the neat and attractive bush bathroom.
Ask the friendly staff for any help you may need to make your stay relaxed and enjoyable.
The Popa Falls
The Popa Falls lie about 5km south of the small town of Divundu. The falls are more of a series of rapids than a waterfall - created by a quartzite ledge in the Kavango River bed.
The rapids are beautiful even though they are hardly 3m high (the height of the rapids depend on the level of the water in the river). At this point, the Kavango River is said to be about 1km wide.
Prolific riverine birdlife makes this area attractive to twitchers.
