Olifantsrus is Etosha’s newest camp and the first accommodation option in the park to offer a camping only experience, allowing you to feel that little bit closer to the incredible African bush all around you. Situated in the wilder, more remote and previously less-utilized western section of the park, Olifantsrus is approximately 60kms from Galton Gate, 130kms from Okaukuejo and 50kms from Dolomite Camp.
Rare and shy species such as black rhino and black-faced impala are well-established in this quieter part of the park. Aside from a more raw bush experience, Olifantsrus offers unrivalled access to a magnificent state of the art double story hide overlooking a manmade waterhole that has become particularly popular with elephants, hence the camp’s name (which translates as ‘Elephant’s Rest’).
The campsite also has a number of amenities including an information centre, a kiosk selling drinks and light meals, a communal kitchen and immaculate male and female ablutions blocks.
