ETOSHA NATIONAL PARK
Namutoni camp is situated on the eastern side of Etosha and derives its name from the old German fort around which it is built. The presence of the fort gives Namutoni more character than the other rest camps in Etosha. Namutoni is the closest to Fisher’s Pan. The pan is a renown wonderland of water birds in the wet season including breeding flamingos.
The Fort overlooks the King Nehale waterhole. It is the hub of activity with two restaurants, a relaxation lounge, a bar, crafts boutique, curio shop, jewellers, and bookstore.
An elevated decked walkway along the water-hole provides views of the surrounding scenery, wildlife, and spectacular sunsets.
