The government owned Namutoni rest camp, has a prime location on the eastern side of the Etosha National Park near the von Lindequist gate. What was an old white washed German fort was redesigned in the late 50’s. It has two restaurants, lounge area, swimming pool, curio shop, bar, petrol station and the prime attraction of the floodlit King Nehale waterhole which attracts some wonderful birdlife including flamingos and in the evening some nocturnal animals.

There are only 44 ensuite rooms at Namutoni with fridges and tea/coffee making facilities. 20 of these rooms are spacious bush chalets with private outdoor relaxation areas and outdoor showers. The 24 ensuite double rooms, have front and rear private outside areas.

Optional guided morning and afternoon game drives are available. In addition to this guided night drives and walks and visits to the historical fort. This property offers good value in a prime location, which is a good choice for self-drivers and a chance to see animals in close proximity at the waterhole.

  • It was FANTASTIC! Beautifully organised, everything worked like clockwork. We agreed that we had the best support team ever (and we have experience) - all delightful, very professional and nothing was too much bother.

    It clearly couldn't have been a better route, such a wonderful mix of landscapes. And plenty of acclimatisation time. Nonetheless, I was glad of my summit oxygen.

    Kit excellent. Double good mattresses made for most comfortable trek camping ever. Tents v good. Mess tent pretty windproof, which was vital for enjoyment. Best camp loo ever!

    My favourite day was Shira Cathedral. Amazing.

  • Hi Lisa,

    The safari trip was excellent! The stay, the food and the people were all very nice. We were happy to have Ryan and Stanley as our game drive guides they brought us up close to the animals and Ryan gave very good information throughout.

    Would definitely recommend to friends who are interested in safaris :)

    Also, thanks much for your help, particularly keeping the room for my Brother and his wife they’ve enjoyed the safari very much too!

    Best regards,
    Woan Chyi

  • We had a fantastic time and all the arrangements worked perfectly.
    We were very impressed with the quality and service levels of all 4 locations visited and it was truly a holiday of a lifetime.
    Thank you to you and to Lisa for giving us this experience.
    Particular highlights for us – really the whole experience, but of particular impact:
    Breathtaking scenery at Cathedral Peak Hotel
    Rhino Ridge game drives incredible, thanks to guide (we had their head guide, Hala, who’s knowledge, enthusiasm, kindness, interaction, ability to spot wildlife was out of this world)
    Luxury of Rhino Ridge (shower, food, views, service)
    Immersion in nature, torch lit meal on last night and beach trip at Kosi Forest Lodge
    Level of service, quality of food throughout
