Overview

Okaukuejo Camp is a large, National Parks Campsite set within Etosha National Park in a convenient location in the southern sector of Etosha National Park. Okaukuejo offers varied, competitively priced accommodation, along with a bar and restaurant, shops, and a swimming pool. The state-run camp is renowned for its floodlit waterhole, which attracts an impressive variety of wildlife, allowing close-up game viewing day and night. Lion, elephant, zebra, and springbok regularly visit, along with the endangered black rhino, whilst the surrounding National Park is home to leopard, giraffe, antelope, and over 340 species of birds. Whilst the camp’s size and number of guests may evoke a more commercial feel than smaller, privately run camps, the comprehensive facilities and accommodation make Okaukuejo a great budget option for travellers comfortable with a larger site.

Facilities in camp include a large buffet-style restaurant serving breakfast, lunch and dinner, along with a bar, swimming pool, petrol station, post office and shops, and a tourist information centre.

Activities include morning and afternoon game drives, and night drives. Note that vehicle congestion can be an issue around the park’s waterholes, especially during the Jun/Nov dry season, when wildlife density is at its most prolific. The park is particularly popular with self-drive visitors, and roads are well marked and signposted. The diverse terrain of Etosha National Park includes open grasslands, camel thorn and Mopani woodland, along with Africa’s largest saltpan. Covering a quarter of the park, the saltpan is Namibia’s main breeding ground for flamingos.

The camp offers 26 campsites and over 100 self-catering accommodation units varying from double rooms to twin or double bed chalets with lounge (some with outside barbeque area). Five ‘premier’ two storey chalets comprise two bedrooms and a private veranda with views of the waterhole. There also two family units available. All units feature an ensuite bathroom, a fridge and tea making facilities. The campsites share 3 ablution blocks, 3 kitchens and each of the campsites has power points, water and braai facilities.

Families are extremely welcome. Guests under six years stay free of charge, and there are discounts for under 12s sharing with an adult. The camp offers two spacious self-catering family units, which comprise two twin bedrooms with ensuite bathrooms, a large lounge and a well-equipped kitchenette. Outside is a shaded veranda and barbeque area or ‘braai’ with a table and seating. Note that participation in guided game drives for children under six years is at the manager’s discretion, whilst the self-drive option offers great flexibility for families with little ones.

  • Dear Lisa. On behalf of the three generations of the Rowland family. Thank you, so much, for organising our wonderful holiday to Botswana and the Victoria Falls. The trip of a lifetime. The week mobile camping in the bush, with our guide Nandos and his crew was a fantastic adventure. How they manage to cook such wonderful food on an open fire is amazing. The sites were constantly visited by monkeys and once by elephants. We were even lucky enough to see two packs of wild dogs, once with a kill. Waterberry Lodge on the Zambezi River is a wonderfully tranquil place. Ideal to relax after the adventures of our safari and visiting Victoria Falls. Very many thanks once again
