Easily identified by its stone tower, Okaukuejo Camp was the first camp to be established in Etosha National Park.
The camp offers a variety of accommodations. For the budget conscious traveler, forty double rooms offer comfortable lodgings with en-suite bathrooms, fridge, and tea station. While the twenty-five bush chalets feature an additional lounge area. Thirty waterhole chalets consist of comfortable double rooms and are located closer to the camp’s busy waterhole. The five premier waterhole chalets are double story cottages, each with two bedrooms and a balcony overlooking the waterhole. For families and groups, the two family chalets are self-catering units including two bedrooms, a kitchenette, and barbeque area.
Etosha National Park, or Etosha, as it is fondly and locally known, is one of the largest savanna conservations in Africa and is world renowned for its spectacular wildlife. Visitors are amazed at the accessibility to large numbers of elephant, black and white rhinoceros, lion, leopard, and cheetah, as well as herds of innumerable springbok, zebra, wildebeest, giraffe, and a multitude of other fascinating species. Access to the camp is through Anderson Gate at the western end of the park. The main attraction of Okaukuejo Camp is its floodlit waterhole frequented by large numbers of animals. There is always something happening at the waterhole, although the hottest hours see fewest wildlife coming to the waterhole.
