Luckily camping means you’re pretty self-sufficient since this isn’t exactly what we’d rate the best campsite in terms of facilities. But you are inside the park and with that comes some serious perks. Be the first to head out into the park when the sun rises and last to return as the sun sets. You are here for the wildlife after all.
You also have the King Nehale waterhole right there within walking distance, and although a little overgrown, this is the bush and you’re really that much closer to it. If location is the seller here, then we’re sold.
The campsites are spread out and some offer shaded spots under the trees. You can make use of the camp facilities, so grab a bite to eat or take a swim. Relax and enjoy venturing into the park and exploring the popular waterholes nearby. You’re well positioned to make the most of it.
25 campsites with electricity; shared ablutions with hot showers and flushing toilets; braai (barbeque) area for cooking at each campsite; shared wash up areas

Morning, afternoon and evening game drives in Etosha National Park in open safari vehicles. Staying inside the park means you’re able to head off at night with a guide to experience the wildlife as dark sets in.
You can also head off on your own to explore by self-drive. Depart at sunrise and be back by sunset if you wish to make it a full day excursion. No self-drive night drives allowed. The eastern side of the park is well known for great game sightings. Stop off at the many popular waterholes and simply enjoy watching the animals come and go.
Close to Fisher’s Pan, the area is great for birding and if the pan is filled with water, depending on the rains, you need not go far to see numerous bird species including pelicans and flamingos during the summer months.
Etosha is not just one of Namibia’s best parks to see prolific wildlife, but possibly one of the best in Southern Africa. It is certainly different from others since it is one of the largest savannah conservation areas in Africa and then of course there’s the striking white salt pan that also sets it apart. Never mind the incredible game viewing and the possibility of spotting 114 different species. It’s special for sure.
