Get ready to embark on a scenic drive to Etosha National Park, passing through Outjo. Keep your eyes peeled for big game as we enter the park and head to Okaukuejo Camp. Once we set up camp, if time allows, we'll head out for an afternoon game drive. Elephants, rhinos, giraffes, and big cats – we're on the lookout for them all.
We head back to camp at sunset, where the wildlife spectacle continues after dark. Just a short stroll from our campsite, Okaukuejo takes the spotlight with its renowned flood-lit waterhole.

DAY 2: Etosha National Park
We've got an entire day to delve into the wonders of Etosha, and we're determined to make the most of every moment. As the park gates open with the sunrise, we start the day with a coffee and head out quickly to spot the big cats returning from their nocturnal hunts. 
We enjoy a pit stop at one of the designated picnic areas, savoring a delicious breakfast before continuing our game drive towards the Halali camp. On arrival at Halali, we enjoy lunch and take a refreshing dip in the pool. We also have time to visit the camp waterhole before heading out on our afternoon game drive.
En route to Okaukuejo, we pause for a closer look at the magnificent Etosha Pan. As we wind our way back to Okaukuejo, staying vigilant for wildlife, our goal is to reach the campsite just before sunset. This timing ensures we catch the magic of the Okaukuejo waterhole during the best hour of the day.
