If you're looking for an alternative to the Okaukuejo Resort inside Etosha National Park, then the family friendly Etosha Safari Camp may well be for you. The camp features eclectic furniture and artefacts made by enterprising local craftsmen and with oodles of natural rock, hurricane lamps and corrugated iron the mood is warm, inviting and authentic.
Etosha Safari Camp has 50 chalets with bright airy interiors and en-suite bathrooms with unique sculpted showers. Traditional meets modern and the fusion is something striking. A completely different take for a safari lodge, with a fun and vibey atmosphere, you feel welcomed into a local 'township' by the friendly staff and decor. A hint of rural that transcends you into the African spirit and all this being just 10km from Etosha and the incredible wildlife that awaits you.
The lodge also has a campsite with fireplaces, communal ablutions and full use of the glorious main lodge. Ice and firewood are available at the lodge and you can hire a dome tent furnished with beds and linen if you don't have equipment.
This is a place to find yourself if you're looking to experience a touch of African flavour. An eccentric experience with a distinctive atmosphere - over and above a good night's rest.

10km from Andersson Gate, Etosha National Park; nature hikes; birdwatching
Close to the Andersson Gate, Etosha Safari Camp is an excellent base from which to explore one of Africa's great parks. The lodge also has several well-marked walking trails through its 450 hectares of private land with named trees, plants and plenty of birdlife.
Mushara Bush Camp is in a private reserve on the eastern edge of Etosha with family-friendly activities in and around the camp, luxury tented suites, a pool and play area for the kids.
Etosha Safari Lodge is a Gondwana Collection property on the edge of Etosha offering comfort, convenience and total serenity.
Being this close to the southern entrance gate into Etosha National Park, the wildlife haven of Namibia, you'd expect it to come at a price tag, but not at Taleni's Etosha Village. An affordable lodge offering great value for money and a comfortable stay.
I cannot say enough about this great company and Ashlee herself... best honeymoon we could have wished for!
