One of Etosha national park's official accommodations, a village run by Namibia wildlife resorts.

Built around Fort Namutoni, it has a campsite, swimming pool, restaurant, fuel station along with lodge and chalet rooms.

Next to it is the King Nehale waterhole, separated by a game proof fence — with a shaded view point on the other side.

What to do thereGame viewing at the nearby waterhole and salt pans — a pair of binoculars may come in handy, with early mornings said to be the best times.

Also camping, swimming, wine and dining, braai and barbecues, hiking inside the compound and game drives nearby.

Best time to visitDuring winter and spring — when there is less rainfall and more animals visit the nearby waterholes.

This is also the high season, with prices being slightly higher.

Location of Namutoni campNamutoni camp is amidst the mopane woodlands of Etosha national park's eastern end.

It also is about 3km from both the Fischer's and Etosha Salt Pans.

How to get thereBy air or road.

There is an airstrip next to it, though a drive from the nearest Von Lindequist gate should do as well.

It is about a 6 hour drive north of Windhoek, with the option of using a rental or private vehicle, as well as overland and self drive tours.
