White Sands campsite offers campers and day visitors the perfect location from which to enjoy the Popa Falls, a series of enchanting rapids where the Okavango river cascades downwards on its journey to the Okavango Delta in neighboring Botswana.
The rapids are without a doubt the most impressive from our area. At Popa, you may spot a crocodile, hippo, and a myriad of wonderful birdlife. These falls are an important point for the river because the powerful Okavango takes a turn here and heads South from Namibia into Botswana, to end in the Okavango Delta.
The Kavango and Caprivi regions are here separated by perennial Okavango River as it twists through the landscape on its journey South, fed by a catchment area in Angola of nearly 150,000 square kilometers.
A reception/information center, including a restaurant, bar, and shop, with restroom.
14 luxury rooms, will be constructed with family units, overlooking the river.
Our beach bar will be completed by the 1st of May 2020, serving all kinds of sundowner drinks and snacks overlooking the mighty Okavango river and falls. The same applies to the shop and restroom in the Information Center.

Because of their unique color and consistency, red velvet mites instantly catch the eyes of humans and animals alike. The mites are also called rain bugs because of their tendency to appear after a rainy day or evening.
