Olifantsrus campsite offers an excellent transit towards the northwest of Etosha Park. It is halfway between Okaukuejo and the new northwest gate called Galton gate. This is indeed the wild side of the park. Olifantsrus has built a great watering hole with some night game viewing possible. The wooden walkways and decks allow for an elevated view over the watering hole. It is the escape into the wild side camp of Etosha National Park.
What makes the Olifantsrus campsite attractive is that you can enter and exit the Etosha park towards The North of Namibia. In the past, the public was not allowed in these park parts. However, it has opened a new route for travellers seeking the less travelled road and enjoying the more remote and less crowded parts of Etosha Park.
Visit Etosha Park this season and book your journey to the north. We recommend that you stay at Olifantsrus and not just make a day trip to the campsite. The distance is far from Okaukuejo’s main camp. It is best to have a sleepover and ensure a relaxed game drive towards this new campsite. Travellers entering at Galton gate is best to stay over instead of driving through the park in one attempt.
