Namutoni Camp

Booking Multiple Accommodations? See our Multi Booking Page

Namutoni Camp is on the eastern side of Etosha and derives its name from the old German fort on the property. Owing to the fort's presence, Namutoni has more character than the other rest camps in Etosha. Furthermore, Namutoni is the closest accommodation to Fisher's Pan. The pan is a renowned spot for waterbirds, including flamingos, who come here so that they can breed during the wet season.

The fort overlooks the King Nehale waterhole. It is a hub of activity in Namutoni, given that there are two restaurants, a relaxation lounge, a bar, a crafts boutique, a curio shop, and a bookstore.

Besides these views, an elevated decked walkway along the waterhole provides views of the surrounding scenery, wildlife, and spectacular sunsets.
