Dolomite Camp

Dolomite Camp

Dolomite Camp is in western Etosha National Park, near the Dolomietpunt waterhole. It was the first camp built in this part of Etosha, opening up a section of the park previously not accessible to tourists. This region is unique in topography, vegetation, and wildlife.

Dolomite Camp gets its name from the dolomite formations in the area. The vegetation is mainly karstveldt and mopane shrub land, unique from the rest of the park. The dolomite hill against which the camp is set has seasonally blooming plants that botanists and photographers alike find irresistible.

The western section now open to the public is approximately one-third of the total area of Etosha National Park. Not only is it scenic, but it is an area where previously endangered species like the black rhinoceros and black-faced impala have successfully bred.

Namibia Wildlife Resorts has other camps in its Etosha portfolio, Okaukuejo Camp (180 kilometers from Dolomite Camp), Halali Camp (250 kilometers), Namutoni Camp (320 kilometers), and Onkoshi Camp (350 kilometers). Dolomite Camp is the most intimate of the camps, with the emphasis on a more exclusive experience and a focus on personal service. Dolomite Camp is unfenced, thus guests are not allowed to wander outdoors after dark but are escorted to and from rooms. All rooms are equipped with a phone that can be used to request an escort.

Facilities at the camp include a reception area, guest lounge, fireside boma, laundry service, two restaurant areas, curio shop, swimming pool, and secure parking.

Accommodation is in elevated, thatched en-suite chalets that are nestled amongst rocky dolomite outcrops. This makes for privacy and spectacular vistas. The twelve west-facing chalets offer single and double options. There are six east-facing units and two more east-facing deluxe chalets. One of the deluxe units is a single and the other a double, each featuring a private plunge pools.

There are more than fifteen waterholes in this area. Large herds of zebra, giraffe, and antelope wander the plains around the camp. Specially arranged game drives operated by knowledgeable tour guides take you to parts of the park previously only known to conservationists.
