Travelling north, you pass through some of the country’s commercial farmland and stop at towns along the way, arriving at the Southern gate of the park by mid-afternoon. After entering Etosha we game drive our way through to Okaukuejo, Etosha’s main rest camp and resort where we will check in and set up camp.The rest camp was formerly a military outpost founded in 1901 and the tower was added in 1963.
Famous for its floodlit waterhole Okaukuejo Rest Camp is also the administrative centre of the park. The waterhole is a hub of animal activity starting in the early hours of the morning. Especially during winter diversity of animal theater comes to live in close proximity to the camp to quench their thirst.
After sunset floodlights illuminate the waterhole. This is the best time and place to see the endangered black rhino. This archaic mammal can often be seen drinking alongside lion and elephant. The number and interaction of the animals is the major drawcard of Okaukuejo Rest Camp in Namibia.
A full day’s worth of game driving awaits and we leave early to enjoy the cool morning air, making our way to Halali camp, situated in the middle of the park. Along the way we visit several waterholes and are afforded spectacular views of the massive Etosha Pan, a shal‐ low depression that is dry for the greater part of the year, but fed by moisture from perennial springs on the fringes. The pan covers about a quarter of the park. The game viewing is excellent throughout the year and we have the chance to spot a few new species that are not normally seen on the Okaukuejo side of the park.
We stop at Halali camp for a rest and a leisurely lunch and there is time to visit the waterhole and to make use of the swimming pool and bar facilities before continuing to the eastern side of the park and our camp next to Fort Namutoni.
Be prepared for the long, scenic voyage back to Windhoek. We pass through towns , stopping in the small town of Okahandja, the home of Namibia’s largest wood carving market.The stalls operate on a local co-operative basis and offer a vast array of truly Namibian souvenirs.
We are due back in Windhoek late afternoon/ early evening and you will be dropped off at your accommodation on our return.
