Okaukuejo Resort/Camp is located in Etosha National Park, 17 km from the southern entrance; it is the oldest establishment in Etosha. It currently functions as the administrative hub of the park and houses the Etosha Ecological Institute from where all park research is monitored and conducted. There is a small grocery shop on site, which provides for the basic needs.
It is famous for its flood-lit waterhole, where a wide diversity of wildlife congregates and interacts. During the winter months the spectacle starts at dawn, with animals coming in large numbers to quench their thirst, with the activity continuing throughout the day and deep into the night. In the early evenings, it is not uncommon to have black rhinoceros, elephant and lion all drinking at the same time.
Okaukuejo Resort Campsite: All the campsites have a braai area, a tap and a power point. There are shared ablution blocks available. It is advisable to bring a ground sheet along.
