Okaukuejo Campsite

Please note: Our review of this property has not yet been added. Watch this space. We're working on it.

As a tailor-made tour operator, we often have to get creative when designing your perfect itinerary.

For example, your travel consultant might add this property to your itinerary if:

Location is a significant factor
It offers a unique feature that will enhance your experience
This is a last-minute booking and room availability is limited
Cost is a factor and you'd rather splash out on another part of your trip
This is a newly opened or refurbished property that we have not inspected yet

When designing your custom itinerary we have much to consider not least of which is the value proposition of every product and service included in your quote. In all cases we strive to give you the best experience possible within your budget so please feel free to ask your travel consultant to share their reasons for including this property in your itinerary.

You can get a site near the waterhole where there’s more privacy (and space) - although if you do pitch there, it’s more of a hike to the shower blocks. Get up early to avoid the ablution queues - there can be big groups waiting. By the way, don’t be surprised if you hear lions roaring close by. Just keep your sleeping bag zipped up tight. No giggling.

This is the wild, wild world of Namibia. Just face the bush and breathe. Feel free? Good. Enjoy the show.

But don’t come here to go glamping. This is the place to pitch up quickly, grab a beer and head to the waterhole as the sun sets. Nobody outside of the camp gets to do this - they close the gates when it gets dark - so this is a treat. And talking of gates, you’re 17km from the Andersson Gate which is Etosha’s southern entrance.

Okaukuejo is at the western end of the Etosha Pan. As well as being the oldest camp - it began life in 1957 - it’s also Etosha’s administrative centre and home to the Etosha Ecological Institute. They work to conserve the fauna and flora in this part of Namibia.

Next morning, if you set your alarm early, you’ll get a head start on the outsiders. Just bring plenty of your own supplies.

Dawn is when the spectacle begins. Animals arrive in large numbers for a morning drink. And they carry on supping 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. Springbok, impala, zebra, kudu, oryx come in huge numbers too.

If you don’t fancy self driving then join a morning, afternoon or night guided game drive.
