Subject to availability

OKAUKUEJO CAMPSITE ǀ Accommodation in Etosha National Park, Namibia

Okaukuejo is the oldest tourist camp in Etosha, which functions as the administrative center of the park and also houses the Etosha Ecological Institute.

Located 17 km from the park’s southern entrance, Okaukuejo Campsite is situated in the western section of the Etosha Pan and overlooks a permanent watering hole. It offers some of the best wildlife sightings in Africa including lion, rhino, elephant and antelope which are drawn to the water to drink. At night, the waterhole is floodlit, allowing you to view the fascinating interactions of Namibia’s nocturnal wildlife. 

In fact, the waterhole hosts continuous wildlife activity from dawn to dusk and late into the night. In the early evenings you will find regular sightings of black rhino, elephant and lion drinking at the water together. 

The camp has a number of convenient facilities, including a restaurant, bar, shop, swimming pool, kiosk and camp sites.

NAMUTONI CAMPSITE ǀ Accommodation in Etosha National Park, Namibia

Namutoni Campsite is uniquely situated, built into an historic German fort that brings you an otherworldly experience of the Etosha National Park. Situated in the eastern section of the park, the camp resides near Fisher’s Pan, a delightful paradise for birdwatchers. 

The walls of the old fort provide an elevated view of the King Nehale Waterhole from which you can easily enjoy some superb game viewing without having to even leave the camp. This old-world, romantic setting allows for beautiful sundowners on the walls of the fort.

The camp is well-equipped with a restaurants, craft shop and swimming pool. The viewing deck overlooks the King Nehale Waterhole and provides day-long wildlife sightings. 

Well-loved western dishes can be enjoyed at The Steakhouse, and the African Fusion Restaurant offers a locally-inspired menu filled with the singular flavours of Namibia. Added to this, you can stock up on amenities or other purchases at the camp’s superette and petrol station. 

The camping site is set apart at a comfortable walking distance and has plug points and communal ablution facilities.

Itinerary

DAY 1: WINDHOEK - OKAUKUEJO CAMP, ETOSHA NATIONAL PARK (approximately 450 kilometres)

We collect you from your Windhoek accommodation and proceed north, travelling through Namibia’s agricultural reaches where we take the opportunity to explore some of the interesting and charming villages enroute to Etosha.

By mid-afternoon, we arrive at Anderson’s Gate where we enter Etosha National Park. We take a scenic game drive to Okaukuejo which is Etosha’s main rest camp and resort. We set up camp after we’ve checked in.

Enjoy a refreshing evening meal and drinks and enjoy your first taste of wildlife sightings at the large waterhole which is situated within easy walking distance of the camp. At night, the waterhole is floodlit, making it easy to observe the captivating nocturnal comings-and-goings of the wildlife which are drawn to the water. 

In fact, the waterhole is touted as offering the best game viewing opportunities in Africa, bringing you close-range sightings of some of the continent’s most iconic animals all congregated at the water, including black rhino, elephant, lion and a wide range of antelope. Sightings of these animals are especially prolific during Namibia’s cool dry season.

Overnight in a safari tent at Okaukuejo Camp.

DAY 2: OKAUKUEJO - EAST ETOSHA NAMUTONI REGION - NAMUTONI CAMPSITE, ETOSHA NATIONAL PARK

We depart for a full-day game drive in the cool of the early morning and proceed to Halali camp which is located in the middle of the Etosha National Park. As we make our way, we stop at a number of scenic waterholes for superb wildlife sightings and take in the broad views of the glistening Etosha Pan. The famous pan covers approximately 25 percent of the Park and remains dry for most of the year.

During this game drive, excellent wildlife sightings include game not usually found at the Okaukuejo side of the park. 

Enjoy a relaxing lunch at Halali camp, visit the nearby waterhole or make use of the bar facilities and swimming pool. After our stop, we continue to our overnight camp at Fort Namutoni which lies on the eastern side of the park.
