There are only 20 chalets at Dolomite Camp all nicely spread out amongst the rocks on a Dolomite hill in the western side of Etosha national Park. It has a special ambience of privacy and seclusiveness that makes every stay at Dolomite Camp a special one. The two small restaurant areas mean you will be sitting with a maximum of twenty people while our bar and swimming pool areas are pleasantly dotted amongst the rocks all with spectaculaer views over Etosha park.
