Okaukuejo Resort

Last updated: 30 December, 2023

This government-owned camp in Etosha is the largest in the Park, with more than 100 rooms and chalets.

The upside of staying in such a busy camp is the raft of services available: from restaurants and a swimming pool, to the on-site petrol station.

You lose a little of that wilderness feel, but it’s perfect for those first-time safari-goers who want the comforts and security of a big resort.

The other plus is the camp’s floodlit waterhole, with grandstand seating, which brings all the big game to you. For the best game viewing, get to the waterhole 30 minutes before sunrise, when predators are often active.

Surrounding area

Situated 17km from Etosha’s southern Andersson gate, Okaukuejo is in the heart of Etosha’s game-rich eastern section.

A number of excellent waterholes are nearby, although the camp’s own floodlit waterhole draws its share of the action. Lion, antelope, elephant and black rhino are frequently spotted.
