Okaukuejo is the administrative headquarters of the Park and also houses the Etosha Ecological Institute, which is tasked with conserving the wide variety of fauna and flora in this part of Namibia. Okaukuejo Camp is situated only 17km from Anderson Gate, the southern entrance to the Etosha National Park.

The main attraction of the Okaukuejo Camp is the central floodlit waterhole.

You will in all probability see elephant, lion and rhino drinking at the same time! The central part of the Camp houses the restaurant, bar, curio shop, pool and tourist shop where you can buy basic necessities.
