Etosha Safari Camp

Etosha Safari Camp

Etosha Safari Camp is just 10 kilometers south of the Anderson Gate entrance into Etosha National Park. This camp offers competitively priced accommodation and has a number of camping sites for those who want to add in a little “roughing it.”

Etosha Safari Camp has fifty twin-bedded chalets set among Mopane trees of the Ondundozonanandana Mountain range. Each chalet is air conditioned and has its own bathroom and veranda. The chalets are beautifully decorated with pleasant colors, fabrics, and furnishings. Painted floors and metal furniture created by local Namibian craftsmen complete the décor. A cool veranda under a canvas roof stretches across the length of each chalet and is furnished with comfortable tables and chairs.

Visitors to Etosha Safari Camp delight in the Okambashu Restaurant and the Oshebeena Bar. The latter is styled as a typical township bar and overflows with African “spirit.” Meals can be taken in the restaurant at the foot of the hill where breakfast and dinner are buffet -style, while lunch is served from a set menu.

Obviously, however, visitors to this part of Namibia are here for the wildlife! Etosha Safari Camp and its sister establishment, Etosha Safari Lodge, are perfectly placed to meet those demands. Etosha National Park is Namibia's prime wildlife destination and one of Southern Africa's finest game reserves. Covering an area of approximately 22,270 square kilometers, it is home to a wide variety of wildlife Most numerous are the plains game such as zebra, wildebeest, giraffe, springbok, impala, and eland. Especially in the dry season, animals congregate at the park’s many waterholes, creating wonderful viewing and outstanding photographic opportunities. It is also here where one may be fortunate enough to see a “kill.”

Etosha is also home to the endangered black rhino and the unusual black-faced impala. Join elephant herds numbering fifty strong as they take their daily bath and generally throw their weight around at the waterholes. Large herds of grazers inhabit the plains west of Okaukuejo and the plains around Fisher's Pan near Namutoni. The huge concentrations of herbivores are in themselves a defense strategy against relatively high numbers of predators.

Activities at the lodge include self-drive as well as guided trips into Etosha National Park on which you will visit numerous waterholes in search of game. Keen birders will find the bird watching excellent as more than 300 bird species have been recorded.
