Dolomite Camp is nestled in the dolomite outcrops in the vast western area of the Etosha National Park, offering clients an intimate experience in one of the most scenic areas of the park, an area where previously endangered species like the Black Rhinoceros and Black-Faced Impala have been successfully bred.
The camp consists of a spacious reception, lounge, bar and restaurant area – offering crimson sunrise and sunset views over the surrounding savannah. From this point, a walkway leads to thatched, En-suite chalets of which two are deluxe chalets with own plunge pools – nestled amongst the rocky outcrops, providing privacy and dramatic and panoramic landscape views.
The camp’s interiors are designed to harmonise the natural surroundings, characterised by weathered dolomite rock formations, Mopane, Moringa and savannah woodland.
With no fewer than 15 waterholes in the surrounding areas, Dolomite Camp presents an exhilarating wildlife viewing experience and with such abundance in animal diversity your only concern should be your photography skills. Specially arranged game drives operated by knowledgeable tour guides take you to parts of the park previously only known to conservationists.
With the area having been virtually “tourist-free” for half a century, it is common to see high numbers of zebra, giraffe and antelope species such as the previously endangered Black-Faced Impala roaming the plains below the hill. The Black and White Rhino can also be spotted in numbers at the Klip –pan waterhole.
Mirroring the animals in terms of sheer attraction, the Dolomite hill where the camp is set presents a botanists dream, boasting hundreds of plant species which bloom at different times of the year; giving Dolomite Camp its seasonal cadence of colours, aroma and mood.
