Divava Okavango Resort & Spa


Although the Popa Falls are little more than a 1.2 km wide line of tumbling rapids with a fall of about 4 metres, they are a significant feature of the Okavango River and a noteworthy tourist attraction. Divava is built within a few hundred metres of the falls which are therefore an ever-present feature of the sound- and land-scape. Guests enjoy the sight, sound and spirit of the Falls and can explore them during a short walk from the Lodge, or view them from the water during a boat trip, when hippos and crocodiles are also often sighted.

To view a wider range of wildlife, most guests opt to visit Mahango Game Park either with one of our guided Game Drives, or independently in their own 4×4 vehicle. Game is more visible in the dry season (June to October) while birds are more plentiful in the rainy season from November to March.

Meanwhile, back at the Lodge, the Mystique Spa is available for sauna, massage, hydro-bath or steam treatment. Some guests may not even want to stir beyond their luxurious room with its private deck offering spectacular views over the river from the high riverbank. Nevertheless, the lure of Mokoro trips, Fishing Adventures, River Island Excursions and Traditional Village Tours to learn about the culture and history of the local people, is usually too great to resist. Located close to Divundu at the western end of Zambezi Divava Okavango Resort & Spa is a luxurious riverside development designed to offer the discerning guest accommodation, comfort and service of the highest order, spiced with hints of Namibian Culture and Safari style Adventure, on land and along the mighty Okavango River. Within sight and sound of the Popa Falls, the senses are stimulated and the body is cossetted in the Spa. .
