Onkoshi Camp

Etosha National Park - Namibia

Opened in late 2008, Onkoshi Camp was the first new accommodation to be built inside the Etosha National Park in over 30 years. In mid 2011 a second lodge, Dolomite Camp, was also opened within the park borders, this means that visitors have a choice of 5 camps within Etosha; as well as numerous lodges situated just outside the parks boundaries.

Onkoshi Camp is situated on the edge of Etosha Pan and guests can self-drive directly in from Namutoni or King Nehale Gate by 2x4 as well as 4WD vehicles. The camp sits on a wooden deck on an isolated peninsula overlooking the Etosha Pan. It was designed as a low impact, environmentally friendly establishment and uses mainly solar power with generator backup. Even though it is now open as a tourist route the secluded position of the camp still offers a pristine, tranquil and unique experience.

Stay for a few nights at Etosha in one of the following chalets at Onkoshi Casmp:

  • Onkoshi Chalet: Their are 14 spacious chalets built on elevated wooden decking complete with thatched roofs and insulated canvas walls. Each chalet has both indoor and outdoor showers and a stone bath with a breathtaking view onto the pan. Two ¾ quarter size beds, a fan, mosquito nets, tea/coffee station, a room safe and room service and standard. Ample luggage and hanging space is provided as is a sleeper couch for a child sharing with parents. The large, wooden-framed retractable doors allow for spectacular panoramic views.
  • Onkoshi Honeymoon Chalet: The Honeymoon Chalet has a king-size bed and similar facilities to the Onkoshi Chalets less for the sleeper couch.

There is an associated restaurant, bar area and an infinity pool overlooking the pan. All meals are set from the Camps very own ‘a la carte menu.’

Activities offered from Onkoshi Camp include guided morning, afternoon and night game drives. Access includes exclusive areas within the north-eastern sandveld area of Etosha which are not open to self-drive visitors.

Onkoshi Camp offers superb vistas over the pan, with dramatic, sunset and sunrise textures and colours.
