How to get to each gate of Etosha



Natural springs attract the wildlife of Etosha who gather at these life giving water holes especially in the cooler early morning and in the evening just before dusk as the antelope, giraffe and herds of zebra and wildebeest take a last drink before the blanket of darkness descends making predators such as lion, leopard and cheetah harder to spot.

King of the waterholes in Etosha though must be the Elephant, reluctant to share their drinking and bathing time. One elephant will usually stand guard as the rest of the family drink and bathe. Watching these gentle giants interact is never disappointing in Etosha.

The main rest camps within Etosha National Park all have floodlit waterholes so that you can continue to enjoy your wildlife safari experience after dark. Okaukuejo, Halali and Namutoni are the oldest of the resorts. All three resorts have both camping and rooms or chalets to suit a variety of budgets.
