Okaukuejo

Etosha National Park, Kunene, Namibia

On the western side of Etosha, this is the biggest and noisiest national-park camp. The staff isn't always the most hospitable, but a floodlighted water hole—regarded as one of the finest in Africa—makes up for service shortfalls. Climb the spiral staircase to the top of the round tower for a good view of the surrounding countryside, and then settle down to an all-night game-watching vigil. Recently renovated, pleasantly furnished, and spotlessly clean accommodations range from a premier water-hole chalet, water-hole and bush chalets, and double rooms, some of which have self-catering facilities. There is also a campsite, which during peak season can be bustling and noisy with not quite enough ablutions There are mail facilities at the camp, as well as a restaurant, gas station, and store to stock up on provisions.
