ETOSHA NATIONAL PARK
ETOSHA NATIONAL PARK
The Okaukuejo Camp is at the western end of the Etosha Pan. It is the oldest tourist camp in Etosha and the administrative centre of the park. Okaukuejo is also home to the Etosha Ecological Institute. There is a selection of accommodation available to provide you with a high level of comfort.
The most popular of the accommodation options are the premier waterhole chalets. These overlook the floodlit waterhole at Okaukuejo – the main attraction of this camp. The area is floodlit at night so guests can enjoy the wide variety of wildlife surrounding the Okaukuejo Camp. The wildlife congregates and interacts; from lion to rhino, 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!
Okaukuejo Camp also provides a more affordable option in the form of their camp facilities that include electricity, a braai area and water. You have access to a shared kitchen and shared hot showers. This was the first Etosha campsite!
