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.
