Famous for its floodlit waterhole Okaukuejo is the administrative centre for the Etosha National Park. Most visitors travel though this camp with its characteristic stone tower.

The camp was formerly a military outpost founded in 1901 and the tower was added in 1963. Located in the south of Etosha National Park, Okaukuejo is 17 km from Anderson Gate. There’s a swimming pool that’s ideal for cooling off during the middle of the day, just make sure you go easy on the the gin and tonics.

The waterhole here is a hub of animal activity in the early hours of the morning or after sunset when the waterhole is illuminated by floodlights. This is the best time and place to see the endangered black rhino. This mammal can often be seen drinking alongside lions and elephants.
