Trip Planner: Africa / Namibia / Oshikoto Region / Etosha National Park / Okaukuejo waterhole
Wildlife are known to gather at Okaukuejo waterhole, an artificial watering hole near a rest camp and administrative center of Etosha National Park. Illuminated by floodlights at night, the waterhole attracts numerous animals who come to quench their thirst, and this is the prime time to see them. Gather near the watering hole to admire the elephants, antelopes, lions, and other mammals that flock here, especially during a dry spell in the area. Visit the spot at night for the best chance to spot the rare and endangered black rhinoceros.

Before leaving the park we spent time at this waterhole. I have never seen so much game in one place. There was a constant coming and going!

We saw soooooo many elephants! I think every animal in the park has come to this water hole. We saw more here than out driving. Come spend a few days here, enjoy the pool, watch a sunset and kick back with a drink as animals come to take a drink as well. We also saw the rare black rhino every night we were there...AMAZING!!!
No elephants to be seen. Very windy during the day. Cold at night. Lots of dust. Camp sites close together. Bring your own drinking water and cheaper firewood. Shop has no meat for sale. Bin scratches at viewing site during the midday. Security is a problem. Told to lock up your stuff. No point in complaining...it's your problem if you see people walking around the camp who should not be there ( according to security guard I spoke to as they are removing plastic containers.) No diesel for sale. This camp has gone downhill. I will not be returning here again ... Too expensive and no value for money plus the security concerns. MTc reception works. No free WiFi.
