A camping area inside Etosha national park's Namutoni camp.

Inside are several camping spots, each with its own outdoor dining table, chairs and fire place. However, the toilets, bathrooms and kitchen area are shared, with a good supply of hot and cold water.

Also in the same compound are a swimming pool, fuel station, hotel and chalet rooms, a bar, two restaurants and the Fort Namutoni.

Just outside the compound's fence is King Nehale waterhole — the largest in the park, with a shaded viewpoint next to it.

What to do thereCamping, campfires, swimming, braai or barbecues, picnics, game viewing at the nearby waterhole, game drives and bird watching nearby.

Best time to visitDuring winter and spring seasons, when more animals visit the waterholes nearby, though prices may be slightly higher.
