Namutoni Camp is situated on the eastern side of Etosha,
and derives its name from the old German fort around which
it is built. The camp is a short drive from the eastern
entrance into the park and also overlooks the flood-lit King
Etosha is famed for its numerous waterholes where a wide
diversity of game can be seen. The most spectacular feature
of the park is the vast, shallow salt pan, which lies in its
centre, filling with water during the rainy season attracting
a variety of wildlife and numerous species of birdlife.
Accommodation & Facilities
Namutoni camp consists of bush chalets and double rooms
and camping is also available. Other facilities at Namutoni
include a couple of restaurants, a bar, curio shop, bookshop
and swimming pool. Overnight visitors must enter the camp
Wildlife & Activities
Hundreds of kilometres of well sign posted, good gravel
roads, connect Namutoni with the other Etosha rest camps, waterholes
and grazing grounds on the southern edges of the pan. Only
this southern section of the park has been developed for visitors,
since the primary role is that of a conservation area where
nature can remain undisturbed. Activities at Namutoni
are focussed on nature and wildlife and these can be enjoyed
by game viewing at the flood-lit waterhole, on guided game drives
or exploring the area in your own self-drive vehicle. Guests
can also visit the historic fort.
