Okaukuejo Camp has situated only 17 km from the southern entrance of the Etosha Park from the Andersson Gate.

The Camp is the oldest tourist camp in Etosha and the administrative centre of the park. Okaukuejo is also home to the Etosha Ecological Institute. It is at the western end of the Etosha Pan. There is a selection of accommodation available to provide you with a level of comfort. The most popular of the accommodations are the premier waterhole chalets. These are overlooking the floodlit waterhole at Okaukuejo.

The main attraction of this camp is that it overlooks a permanent waterhole which is floodlit at night. A wide diversity of wildlife surrounds Okaukuejo camps. The wildlife congregates and interacts from lion to rhino to elephant and antelope.

The spectacle starts at dawn, with animals coming in large numbers to quench their thirst. The activity continues throughout the day until late at night. In the early evenings, it is not uncommon to have black rhino, elephant, and lion all drinking at the same time.
