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.
Chudob: Fed by an artesian fountain, this waterhole has a floating reed island. You should find eland here along with giraffe, elephant, warthog and black-faced impala.
Groot Okevi: Groundwater level spring. Elephant, gemsbok, kudu, even cheetah and leopard.
Kalkheuwel: A favourite among photographers. You can get good close-ups of the animals at this busy waterhole. There are lots of animals here and also excellent bird watching opportunities.

Klein Okevi: Groundwater level spring where you can see black-faced impala, elephant, giraffe, lion, kudu, gemsbok, zebra and if you're lucky, cheetah.
Klein Namutoni: An artesian spring about 2km south of the camp. Excellent game viewing, especially early morning and late afternoon.

Don't miss taking a tour around Dikdik Drive, where you have a good chance of spotting the tiny and often elusive Damara Dikdik.
Koinkas: Game reasonably frequents fed by an artesian fountain.
