A new campsite has just opened in Etosha National Park. Located in the Northwestern part of the park between Okaukuejo and Dolomite Camp. Olifantsrus Campsite is a campsite only, there is no accommodation available here.
There are 10 campsites each taking a maximum of 8 people.

A hide has been built at the man-made waterhole at the campsite. The hide offers a unique game viewing opportunity in the double story hut with aluminium glass windows. The Hide has been built at the waterhole so guests will be up close to the visiting game. It is connected to the campsite by a wooden walkway and provides a safe lookout point.

There are numerous waterholes around Olifantsrus Campsite making for good game viewing. There will also be fewer tourists in this part of the park as most accommodation is on the eastern end of the park.

Accommodation: 10 campsites with power points, maximum 8 people per site. There are no braai facilities at this stage but there are fireplaces set out on the ground. (Guests need to bring their own braai grids etc.)
