DESCRIPTION:

Accommodation is within the Okaukuejo camp on the eastern side of Etosha. This is a beautiful camp which is set around a large waterhole. One can sit at the waterhole all day and see a large variety of animals come down to drink. Two types of chalets are available. The waterhole chalets are very close to the waterhole so one just has to walk out of your front door to see a variety of wildlife. The other chalets are within a short walking distance from the waterhole. Each chalet has its own bathroom/toilet. The waterhole provides endless and fantastic photographic opportunities.

There will be two-three hour drives (approx) – one in the early morning and one in the afternoon. This is the best time to catch animals on the move. After the early morning drive you will enjoy a good brunch and a walk around the camp, or possibly a bit of a rest, before venturing out again in the afternoon.
