Hi Mel,

We are normally camping because the chalets are very expensive and some not for self catering. A new camp opened in the western section called Dolemite camp. Its rates are very reasonable for single persons compare to KTP wilderness camps

At Okaukuejo some of the chalets are not well equip for self catering and even lack a braai area, but you do get a fridge with tea /coffee station

Halali will be better for self catering while at Namutoni you will be required to eat at the restaurants. Eating wise Etosha is much better than KTP, but the shops not great providing basic cooldrink, beer, wood and bread at least plus curios.

Onkoshi camp is also a new addition to NWR. We have not stayed there before but the location looks good. Only problem you cannot get there in your own car and need to rely on the park for game drives which is a bit pricy for me.

There are a number of private lodges and camping areas near the entrance gates at Okaukuejo and Namutoni so the options are wide. Some are not too expensive either and a good alternative.

We don't know exactly what we will do for the next winter holidays, but we might plan to go to Etosha. We have been there once, in 2012, but a travel agency did all the reservations.

Is it still time to book for end of June / beginning of July or is it too late? Is there a official site (such as sanparks) to book directly and know in realtime what is left?

Do you know if we can go now to Dolomite Camp from the eastern part of the park ? We stayed there in 2012 but entered the park by Galton gate in the West, coming from Epupa Falls...

Any other piece of advice is warmly welcome !

Thanks Nan and Lisbeth.

Is it the official site ? I ask this question because I found lots of sites that look more or less the same (https://www.nwr.com.na/, http://etoshanationalpark.co.za/, http://www.etoshanationalpark.org/, http://namibianwildliferesorts.com/) and I prefer to book directly through the official site, unless you tell me they are all reliable and there is no difference.

I think that the one I have is the official one. If you are not sure, I think that it is enough to have a good look and it will show clearly \O
