Etosha National Park

 

  • Etosha National Park is a national park in northwestern Namibia. The park was proclaimed a game reserve on March 22, 1907 in Ordinance 88 by the Governor of German South West Africa, Dr. Friedrich von Lindequist. 
  • Area: 8,598 sq miles (22,270 km²)
  • Sit up around the Halali waterhole at night and watch big game come down to drink.
  • Hike in the Erongo Mountains to caves full of ancient Bushmen paintings.
  • Self-drive through Etosha, stopping to watch and photograph game for as long as you please.

Review #1: August 2013

We camped in a tent for two nights at Okaukeujo and 1 night at Namutoni. The wildlife around the man made waterholes are wonderful but unfortunately the western side with the most man made water holes are only open for tour operators. The ablutions at the campsites were not functioning properly, with too many visitors per ablution. The ablutions really needs urgent attention. But I absolutely loved the view at the Etosha viewsite and the wildlife. – Nbcamping, Pretoria, South Africa

Review #2: july 2013

We stayed 3 nights: 1 at Okaukeujo, 1 at Halali and 1 at Namutoni. Best campsite: Halali. Best waterhole: Okaukeujo (lots of animals day and night). We were a bit disappointed by Namutoni (bathrooms are not so good, waterhole is small and we never saw anything). At the waterhole in Halali we saw a group of 25 elephants during one hour, it was a great experience to see the social live of this wonderful animals during that time. There was a black rhino too, trying to go to the water but the elephants didn’t allow him till the very young ones had left. –  Pitchounette20, Saint Nicolas, Belgium
