Onkoshi is the newest camp to be built inside Etosha National Park, and has a spectacular location on an isolated peninsula jutting into Etosha’s vast and shimmering salt pan.
Etosha is Namibia’s flagship wildlife reserve and is known to have some of the best wildlife viewing in Southern Africa – particularly during the dry season when game congregates around the 30 or so waterholes dotted about the park.
Onkoshi offers guided game drives during which you can expect to see large herds of elephant, zebra and wildebeest, as well as endemic species such as black-faced impala. Night drives are a great opportunity to spot predators such as leopard, while lion are often seen in the early morning light.
This is an exclusive tented camp, with just 15 chalets, all built on elevated decks and connected to the main lodge via wooden walkways. The views across Etosha Pan are spectacular, with shimmering mirages during the heat of the day, and dramatic sunsets leading to star-filled skies.
Onkoshi was designed to have a low impact on the environment, and is partially powered by solar energy. It’s a peaceful place that really makes the most of the striking landscapes and sense of space for which Etosha is famous.
Onkoshi Camp lies on the eastern shore of Etosha Pan, in Etosha National Park. Self-drive visitors need to leave their vehicles at Namutoni, from where they are transferred to Onkoshi in a game-drive vehicle.
