Etosha National Park is one of the most popular places in Africa to spend a few days experiencing a truly African safari, with several accommodation options available both inside the park and nearby.
The selection of camps inside Etosha National Park can get crowded, and those who prefer a more exclusive and luxurious experience can book into a number of establishments on the eastern fringes of Etosha and still enjoy an authentic safari experience.
Eastern Etosha accommodation features world-class luxury along with Namibian hospitality and is located close to Von Lindequist gate for easy access to the park.
You can look forward to walking trails, game drives and bird watching excursions while resident at any of these camps.
