Tourist Information

Etosha’s four main entry gates are Von Lindequist (Namutoni), west of Tsumeb; King Nehale, southeast of Ondangwa; Andersson (Okaukuejo), north of Outjo; and Galton, northwest of Kamanjab.

At the gate, you must purchase a permit costing N$80 per adult plus N$10 per vehicle per day. The permits are to be presented at your reserved rest camp, where you pay any outstanding camping or accommodation fees.

Those booked into the rest camps must show up before sunset, and can only leave after sunrise; specific times are posted on the gates.

Pedestrians, bicycles, motorcycles and hitching are prohibited in Etosha, and open trucks must be screened off. Outside the rest camps, visitors must stay in their vehicles (except at toilet stops).
