Your Accommodation Options in Etosha National Park - Outside

Etosha National Park is one of Africa’s great game parks.  Centered on the vast expanse of the Etosha Pan, a shallow depression of approximately 5 000km2 which forms the heart of the park.  The park is a sanctuary to the largest population of the western sub-species of the black rhino, white rhino, large herds of elephant, the striking black-faced impala, lions and a profusion of other animals and birds.  Etosha is open throughout the year and is accessible by tarred roads via the Andersson Gate in the central southern sections, the Von Lindequist Gate in the east, the Galton Gate in the west and the King Nehale Gate located on the Andoni plains just north of the Andoni waterhole, which provides access from the north-central Owambo regions.
 
The park has five tourist resorts - Okaukuejo, favored for its floodlit waterhole where you will find an abundance of animals all through the night;  Namutoni, characterized by the historic fort around which it is centered;  Halali, situated halfway between Okaukuejo and Namutoni and normally only used for a lunch stop, but also have a stunning waterhole where during the dry months you will find big herds of elephants coming to drink;  Onkoshi Camp, an exclusive low-impact, environmentally friendly tented camp about 25km north-west of Namutoni; and the newly opened Dolomite Camp situated in western Etosha.
