Dolomite Camp

Etosha, Namibia

Nestled in the dolomite outcrops of western Etosha National Park, Dolomite Camp offers an intimate experience of one of the most scenic areas of the park, the previously restricted western region of Etosha, where endangered species including the black rhino and black-faced impala have been successfully bred. Just constructed in 2011, the camp sits atop a hill, with 20 guest chalets built on elevated wooden decks on the outer edges of a dolomite ridge (note that there is a lot of up-and-down walking to get between the tented chalets and the restaurant). All rooms have with thatched roofs, canvas walls, and large, wooden-framed retractable doors that allow spectacular panoramic views. You can see a lot of wildlife right from your chalet—huge herds of elephants, zebras, giraffes. There is also a nice bar with a viewing deck and an infinity swimming pool.
