The western section of Etosha National Park is little traversed, for those who wish to visit this section of the park or to enter/exit via the gate in the north west of the park there are two relatively new restcamps, Olifantsrus Campsite for those who wish to camp, and Dolomite Tented Camp for those who prefer a little more luxury.

These are guides to help you plan your trip to Namibia and do not include times for photo stops, rest breaks, eating and toilet stops, so remember to add these into your times while making plans, allow time for unexpected holdups, punctures etc, especially when heading into any of Namibias National parks like Etosha as the park gate closes at sunset minus the time it will take you to get to the camp inside the park where you have a reservation and you will not be allowed into the park if you arrive too late to get there before sunset, even if you have a booking to stay inside Etosha Park.
