Okaukuejo Camp (formerly known as Okakwiju), meaning a woman who bore a child each year, stands near the public southern entrance of Etosha National Park, at the western end of the famous Etosha Pan. Although a larger camp than most we feature, it is a popular choice due to its well-established waterhole, which attracts a variety of game in large numbers.

Our view of Okaukuejo Camp

Being a larger, government run camp, Okaukuejo does not reach the same standards as the smaller, private camps outside the park. However, its excellent waterhole and convenient location inside the park make it well worth staying at, and its prices are reasonable.

Finding space at Okaukuejo

The fantastic waterhole makes Okaukuejo a very popular choice for travellers to Etosha, and it can get very booked up, especially from July to October. Expert Africa holds several rooms throughout this period – usually two-person chalets – reserving them for travellers who visit Okaukuejo as part of a fly-drive holiday with us. This means that sometimes we have space, even when the camp will tell you that they are 'full'. Take a look at Okaukuejo's live availability page for more information – and remember that these rooms are only for travellers who book their whole fly-drive itinerary with us.
