We saw the most incredible scene here, more than 30 elephants came for a party. Also saw rhinos, and many zebras, giraffes, oryx, springbok, birds. Definitely an amazing waterhole in Etosha

Make sure you stay here. The BEST waterhole and LOADS of space to see the animals, both during the day and at night as it's brilliantly floodlit.

We stopped by on our way to another camp inside Etosha since we saw a herd of elephants heading to the waterhole. It was easy to park and then walk over to the site. Amazing to see the animals pretty close by.

Waterholes are where the action is. If you can get there on your own then no need to do a game drive unless perhaps at night or for more information and answers .
