Etosha National Park

Okaukuejo

Okaukuejo is one of only six lodges inside Etosha National Park. They are all in front of floodlit waterholes, the one at Okaukuejo being regarded as the best of the lot.

Okaukuejo (pronounced oka-KOO-yo) is a simple lodge with bungalows, a bar, a buffet restaurant, and a generous swimming pool. They have useful facilities like a filling station, a shop, and camping; it also houses the administrative and research offices of Etosha National Park.

One of only six lodges inside the park - all owned by the parastatal Namibia Wildlife Resorts - Okaukuejo has a floodlit waterhole that is famous for producing some spectacular wildlife action. Elephants, black rhino and lion frequent the permanent water source and they often do it at the same time.

Activities

Inside Etosha National Park; game drives; floodlit waterhole at the lodge

Etosha is an enormous game park with several pans formed from an ancient inland sea. Many springs and waterholes line the edges of the pans and they attract a random and continuous display of the 114 mammals and 340 bird species to be found in the park.

Although you can drive for great distances visiting any number of waterholes in Etosha, most of your game viewing will be done from the lodge in an easy chair because you'll be at one of the best waterholes in the park.
