Okaukejo Rest Camp



The Okaukuejo Rest Camp is located within the Etosha National Park, 17 km from the Anderson Gate and 450 km from Windhoek.


Okaukuejo Rest Camp is the oldest in the Etosha National Park: it was opened in 1955. The biggest attraction of Okaukuejo is the waterhole, which is floodlit at night. This permanent watering hole attracts wildlife especially in the dry season when they come drinking at night.
The vast camp has chalets, a camping site, supermarket and a pool.


The large Okaukuejo Rest Camp has a supermarket, fuel station and a kiosk and a large swimming pool. The restaurant serves breakfast and dinner and cold drinks are available at the bar. For entertainment see the night life of animals drinking at the waterhole.
There are more than 100 chalets and a camp site.

The 40 double rooms have fridges and tea/coffee making facilities. There are 25 bush chalets equipped with two twin beds, a lounge area, barbeque, fridge and tea/coffee making facilities. The two family chalets sleep four and have a kitchenette and barbeque area.
