The heart of Namutoni camp is the fort, which makes a very good photographic subject from all angles...
The fort no longer has bedrooms and now contains shops and the restaurant.
There is a swimming pool and a boma-bar called The 'Oboma Bush Bar'. The fort, swimming pool and chalets are all linked by a wooden walkway - this is not going to last with the hot Namibian sun!
The camp waterhole is visible from the viewing platform in the fort but is obstructed by reeds. The waterhole tends not to attract a lot of game so it is not our favorite. This is beacuse there are too many waterholes close to the camp (Klein-Namutoni, Koinachas, and Klein Okevi) where the animals tend to drink.
In addition to not attracting a lot of animals to the camp waterhole, we don't like the camp beacuse you are no longer permitted to climb to the top of the tower in the fort - you are limited to the viewing platform which is not high enough to provide good views of the surrounding area.
And when you arrive at the camp you cannot drive to your chalet or room - you must park in a parking area and then you are taken by golf cart to your unit. If you leave something behind in your car do enjoy the walk back to the parking area and then back to your chalet!
The new bush chalets have been ronovated and they are 5-star in terms of decor...

"It's 764 pages of the most amazing information. It consists of, well, everything really. Photography info...area info...hidden roads..special places....what they have seen almost road by road.
