Yes indeed. The roads inside and through the park are relatively good and if you purchase a map of Etosha at the shop inside the park gates where you also pay your entry fees, you will be able to go explore the park and go to the various waterholes on your own. We always recommend doing at least one, preferably your first game drive with the lodge and their guide in order to see how it is done and gain some experience. The guides know the park like the back of their hand. They know where the best places are to go and how to look out for the animals in the bush. They’ll give you some insight, tips and tricks, but this is not necessary.
