The waterholes in Etosha are some of the best places to see wildlife because during the dry season there is very little surface water for the animals to drink. So they have to visit one of the more than 40 waterholes at some time during the day or night.

Facts About

Etosha National Park

Accommodation - Lodges & Camps

The Etosha National Park has 6 camps situated inside the borders of the park itself namely, Okaukuejo, Halali, Namutoni, Dolomite, Onkoshi and Olifantsrus camps.

Close to the entrance gates on the outside of the park there are a variety of lodges to stay at. On the eastern side there are the Emanya, Mokuti, Mushara and Ongua lodges.

On the southern side you will find the Epacha, Etosha Safari, Etosha Village, Ongava and Toshari lodges.


This park is situated within a malaria area so it's recommended that any visitors take anti-malaria medication, especially during the wetter months from November to June.

During the dry winter months there is a very slim chance of contracting malaria here, but it's always better to take precautions.

Better Wildlife Sightings

Etosha is a park where the animals literally live and die by its waterholes, especially during the dry months when there is no rain at all.

What this means is that if you choose some of the more visited waterholes (by wildlife, that is) and wait there patiently, you will probably see as much as when you drive around in the park.

These are five waterholes where sightings can be excellent: Okaukuejo, Moringa, King Nehale, Nebrowni and Wolfnes.

National Park Info

Getting To Etosha

By Car - The main road networks in Namibia are tarred and the secondary roads are gravel, but most are in a good enough condition to be driven using a normal sedan vehicle. The distance from Windhoek to the Okaukuejo camp in Etosha is 434 km ( 270 mi) using the fastest route.

By Air - You can charter a flight departing from one of the four main airports in Namibia and land at an airstrip adjacent to any one of the three main rest camps in Etosha.

Etosha Gate Times

The park has a unique way of regulating the entrance and camp gate opening and closing times. They are synchronized with sunrise and sunset and you can see exactly when that is by looking at the two clocks (one for sunrise and one for sunset) prominently displayed at each gate of the various rest camps.

Driving Around

The Namibians know a thing or two about producing excellent gravel roads, and this is probably reflected in the fact that the speed limit of 60 km/h ( 37 mi) is the highest of any national park in Southern Africa.

The road network is not very extensive and only covers a small portion of the 22 912km2 ( 8846 sq mi) that the reserve commands, mostly to the south and western edges of the pan.

It seems to have been designed with the express purpose of linking as many of the waterholes together as possible, which is good thinking considering what an important part they play in spotting wildlife in this reserve.
