Okaukuejo Rest Camp

Okaukuejo Rest Camp

Etosha National Park

Okaukuejo Rest Camp Location Map

Etosha National Park offers some of the world’s finest wildlife viewing. Tucked away in the north of Namibia and stretching across 22,000 square kilometres of unrivalled remote landscape, Etosha is home to 114 different species of mammal, including 4 of the famous Big 5 - lion, leopard, elephant and rhino (both black and white). It also boasts over 400 species of bird and 110 species of reptile. You’ll also find 3 rare antelope species amongst its hills and valleys - the lovely black-faced impala, the graceful roan antelope and the dinky Damara dik-dik, Southern Africa’s tiniest antelope, which stands only 40cm tall to the shoulder as a fully grown adult.

Okaukuejo Rest Camp is situated within the Park, approximately 17 km from the southern Andersson Gate entrance.

The main attraction of the camp is that it overlooks a permanent waterhole which is floodlit at night. Here a wide diversity of wildlife congregate and interact - from lion to rhino to elephant and antelope. The spectacle starts at dawn, with animals coming in large numbers to quench their thirst. The activity continues throughout the day 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.

Accommodation is provided to suit every need - double storey 2 bedroom premier waterhole chalets with balconies overlooking the waterhole, standard waterhole chalets (situated close to the waterhole), bush chalets, double rooms and family chalets.

Other facilities include a restaurant, bar, shop and swimming pool. There is also a petrol station.
