From the walls of the fort you can enjoy an elevated view of the King Nehale Waterhole allowing for great game viewing without leaving the camp. The walls of the fort are also and excellent spot for sundowners. There is hardly a better way to end a day in the bush and Namibia than to marvel at the colours of the setting sun.

The Camp is situated in the eastern part of Etosha National Park. While being accessible via the Von Lindequist Gate. Additionally its in close proximity to Fisher’s Pan, making Namutoni a hotspot for birders. Furthermore two restaurants, a craft shop, a pool and a viewing deck overlooking King Nehale Waterhole make the fort a great place to relax at lunchtime or after evening game drives. The African Fusion restaurant will introduce you to local flavours, while The Steakhouse offers popular western dishes. A superette, curio shop and petrol station allow you to stock up on everything that is necessary and nice.

Namutoni was originally established as a control post during the mad cow disease epidemic of 1897 in Namibia. The fort was built by the German Schutztruppe from 1902-03 and rebuilt in 1906 after the Ovambo destroyed the original building. The fort served as a police post and later as a South African army base. In 1950, authorities declared Fort Namutoni a national monument, and it opened for tourism in 1957.
