Etosha Garden Hotel: Our full report
In nearby Outjo, the delightful Etosha Garden Hotel is unusual – it's a particularly good small-town hotel with just 21 rooms. Don't expect luxury, but do expect good food, friendly service, and great value. From here you can not only drive to Etosha easily, but also explore the town and its mix of cultures, including Damara and Herero people, who are often identifiable by their traditional dress.
