popa falls

Mamili National Park
Namibia’s equivalent of the Okavango Delta, a watery wilderness of wildlife rich islands, river channels and wetlands. 
During the dry season the islands can be reached by road but after the rains 80% of the area becomes flooded, cutting them off from the mainland.

Popa Falls
are more a series of rapids than a waterfall.
Game fishing for tiger and bream is good in this area.

Namibia’s cultural heritage is rich and varied with some 12 ethnic groups, easily identified by their language, dress, food, religion and music.

Kavango People

The traditional home of the Kavango people is the Kavango river of which there are five separate tribal groups.
Fishing, cattle farming and maize production are their main livelihoods.
More recently new agricultural projects have been introduced i.e. sugar can and community forests.

The Kavango people believe in one Supreme Being (Nyambi).  Diviners and medicine men are highly respected, although today most people practice Christianity.

The Zambezians (Caprivians)

Here each village is represented by a headman who is normally the most senior male member.  
He in turn advises a Senior Headman who is the representative of a number of villages.  
It should be noted that the family is most important socio economic unit to the Zambezians. 
Hunting and fishing as well as millet, maize, melons and sugar cane farming are the principle industries.
