Etosha National Park offers five accommodation options, suiting all holiday needs.

Dolomite Camp 

Dolomite Camp, which opened in mid-2011, is in the previously restricted western third of the park, where animals abound.

Built by hand atop a dolomite ridge, Dolomite offers panoramic views unique in Etosha. The ecologically designed thatch-roofed chalets blend into the mountaintop, creating a sense of being one with nature. Three of the twenty chalets are deluxe, with their own plunge pools.

One chalet was designed for the physically challenged. There is a large pool at the camp, with several pavilions and other structures, such as a fireside boma for game viewing, dining, and relaxing.

There are more than fifteen waterholes in the vicinity of Dolomite Camp and game drives are organised to venture into areas of the park that have been closed to visitors for fifty years. Etosha’s western entrance (Galton Gate) is currently accessible only to those lodging at Dolomite Camp.

The gate is expected to be opened to the public in 2014. Distances between Dolomite Camp and the other rest camps in Etosha are Okaukuejo Camp (180 km), Halali Camp (250 km), Namutoni Camp (320 km) and Onkoshi Camp (350 km).

 Onkoshi Camp

Onkoshi Camp is an exclusive, low-impact environmentally friendly upmarket accommodation facility on the eastern edge of the Etosha Pan.

Built on elevated wooden decks, it offers 15 units (30 beds), a restaurant and bar area, and an infinity pool overlooking the pan.

Guests enter the park at Namutoni, from where they are transported to Onkoshi Camp in NWR vehicles. Situated on a secluded peninsula overlooking the immense Etosha Pan, Onkoshi Camp is completely out of view of current tourist routes. It offers a pristine, tranquil and unique experience to its guests. Activities include professionally guided game drives.

Okaukuejo

Okaukuejo is located 17 km from the southern entrance of the park. The rest camp is famous for its floodlit waterhole where visitors can observe at close quarters a spectacle of wildlife congregating and interacting.

The waterhole experience has been enhanced by reducing disturbance in this area. Five of the waterhole chalets are premier double-storey units with a balcony overlooking the waterhole. Accommodation suits every need, from premier bush chalets overlooking the waterhole to family chalets, bush chalets and double rooms.

Namutoni 

Namutoni is located on the eastern side of the Etosha National Park. It centres around an old German Fort, overlooking the King Nehale waterhole.

An elevated, decked walkway along the edge of the waterhole provides opportunities for enjoying the surrounding scenery, wildlife and spectacular sunsets. Accommodation is in comfortable double rooms or bush chalets. Camping sites are also available.

Halali 

Halali is situated at the base of a dolomite hill, amongst shady mopane trees.
