Olifantsrus Restcamp

Olifantsrus is the newest campsite in Etosha. The great thing about this accommodation is that, unlike many other accommodations, it only offers camping. This means you will only find other campers here. Olifantsrus is found in the more remote western part of the park, at about 130 kilometres from Okaukeujo. Because this small campsite is a bit more isolated, you experience a true bush setting. The rare black rhino lives here, and you can also find the black-faced impala.

There is a water well by the camp that has become popular among the elephants. This is where the campsite gets its name from. The elephants and other animals are perfectly visible from the lookout hut at the camp. Olifantsrus also has a kiosk with light meals, an information centre, a shared kitchen and clean toilet blocks.

Olifantsrus Camp has about 10 camping pitches, with room for up to 8 people per site.

We would recommend Selfdrive4x4.com to our friends

We booked a last minute 17 day self drive trip through Namibia with this company and everything was just perfect. Contact with the company was very pleasant and they kept us posted with updates about the progress of our trip. Gps, maps, book and 12V equipment was sent to our home as soon as our trip was confirmed.

Price wise it was a great deal and everything in Namibia (car and layovers) were to our satisfaction. We would definitely book again with this company and we would recommend it to our friends.
