If you’re a safari lover who prefers staying over for multiple days to explore the wildlife and nature in peace, you can opt for camps and accommodation offered at Etosha National Park from reasonable, affordable to luxurious rates.
Etosha has many camps that are equipped and suitable for families. You can experience the nearby waterholes and wildlife which are concentrated around the camps to add to your wildlife adventure but if you’re looking for something a bit more luxurious, I would recommend private game reserves that lie in and adjacent to Etosha. They offer accommodations outside and inside Etosha both for your feasibility. These are Onguma, Ongava and Mushara. All of them offer glorious accommodation with five-star services and planned safari activities like 4×4 game drives, cultural tours and walking safaris.
Accommodation inside the park
Etosha National Park being one of Southern Africa’s most popular wildlife parks, this National Park caters to all kinds of safari lovers. Having a particularly dry climate – the concentration of big games around the waterholes makes game viewing incredibly
rewarding. You might not even have to leave your rest camp to see lion, elephant, rhino and any number of antelope and zebra quenching their thirst.
Etosha has various camps inside the park including three main ones near the gate with all sorts of fun activities and luxurious perks. These camps also offer swimming pools, restaurants and floodlit waterholes that tempt you to linger a bit longer and make your trip easier by offering shops and petrol stations that cater to independent travellers as well. They keep you connected to nature.
- Dolomite Camp is perched on a hill in the exclusive western part of Etosha National Park. Luxuriously appointed safari-style tents offer views of a vast area that has been almost untouched by tourism. Several waterholes offer great game sightings.
- Onkoshi Camp Onkoshi Camp is set on wooden platforms right on the edge of the Etosha Pan. The views of the park’s characteristic park change from flickering mirages to flocks of flamingos depending on the season. The camp has a minimal environmental impact and offers game drives in an exclusive area of the park.
- Okaukuejo Camp Okaukuejo Camp is famous for its floodlit water hole. Here you will see lion, elephant and rhino drinking side by side. Etosha’s busiest camp offers chalets with views of the waterhole and is structured around a tall stone tower.
- Halali Camp Halali Camp is centrally located in the park within close proximity of some of the most popular waterholes. The camp has a floodlit waterhole and the largest swimming pool in the park.
- Namotoni Camp Namotoni Camp is a former German fort. The tall white protective walls of the fort give this camp a unique personality. Two restaurants offer a wide variety of tasty meals and sundowners on the fort’s walls are a must when visiting Namutoni.
- Olifantsrus Camp Olifantsrus is Etosha’s newest camp and the first accommodation option in the park to offer a camping-only experience, allowing you to feel that little bit closer to the incredible African bush all around you.
