Dolomite Camp

Etosha National Park, Kunene, Namibia

This is the place for those looking for something unique and far from the maddening crowds. Opened in 2011, the newest of Etosha's camps is also the only one in the previously off-limits western section of the park. The camp, set among the Dolomite hills synonymous with its name, sports a bar, sunset deck, and an infinity pool perfect for scoping out the scorched plains and hills while cooling off. Tented deluxe chalets with mesmerizing views are elegantly appointed and some have plunge pools. Having been untouched by tourists for almost 50 years, this section of the park has allowed animals like black rhino and black-faced impala to breed successfully. You may also be lucky enough to see roan antelope, Moneiro's hornbill, and Hartmann's zebra—species specific to the area.


  • no crowds
  • a newer, better-designed camp than the other NWR offerings
  • completely unspoiled wilderness
  • more personal service than any other NWR camp


  • far from the rest of the park and the Etosha Pan
  • long uneven pathways from chalets to lodge could be off-putting for some
