This exclusive camp is perched on wooden structures well off the public self-drive routes. Onkoshi Camp sits right on the border of the parks characteristic salt pan. Views from the lodge reach far into the horizon and the sunrises and sunsets are simply incredible. Onkoshi is a low-impact camp that runs mainly on solar power. In the remote north-eastern section of the park Onkoshi offers the essential Etosha experience.
The 5 000 km² Etosha Salt Pan gives this national park its unique character. Onkoshi’s 15 free standing chalets face this enormous expanse that is arid in the dry season and attracts a cloud of flamingos when covered in water. The vast nothingness and mirages in the African heat contrast the prolific wildlife around the pan. Game drives offer exclusive access to the surrounding area. Morning and afternoon game drives provide excellent photographic opportunities with no other vehicles around. At night the stars over the Etosha Pan shine incredibly bright enchanting not only the amateur astronomers. The restaurant offers delicious meals and a spacious swimming pool looks out onto the pan.
Guests are picked up from Namutoni Camp which is accessible through Von Lindequist Gate. The camp is far away from the self-drive routes in the park and offers an exclusive and low impact safari adventure.
The entire lodge is built on wooden decks and faces the Etosha Pan. The 15 suites have a natural and organic feel with thatched roofs, canvas walls and a wooden framed door looking onto the pan.
