Driving in the Park:
There is a network of roads linking the three campsites and subsidiary roads lead to various waterholes. When it was originally proclaimed at the turn of the century the Etosha Park consisted of an area of 100,000 square kilometres. This was the largest reserve on earth but in the 1960′s political pressure resulted in the Park being reduced to its current size.
There are three rest camps operated by Namibia Wildlife Resorts in Etosha Park; Namutoni, Halali and Okaukuejo.
All three camps have floodlit waterholes which allow for excellent night game viewing.The waterhole at Okaukuejo is famous for Rhino and Elephant, while the newer waterhole at Halali is fast attracting more wildlife.
The park has an intricate road system linking the rest camps with more thatn 30 waterholes ( some of them may be closed – check with tourist officers at the rest camps).
All roads are surfaced with gravel and grading crews try to keep them in good order, but sharp stones cause many punctures
