Can I view the waterholes inside Etosha at night, if staying at a lodge outside the park?

Unfortunately not. If staying at a lodge or camp outside the park gates, you will not have access at night to the floodlit waterholes at the camps inside the park. You are welcome to visit these waterholes during the day when inside the park. The park entrance gates open at sunrise and close at sunset, so unless you are staying at one of the camps inside the park with a waterhole inside the park, you will not be able to view these waterholes at night. Keep in mind though that many lodges outside the park gates are on private reserves and may also have their own private floodlit waterholes and special hides.
