Namibia has several national parks.   The parks are managed by the Ministry of Environment & Tourism.  In most parks accommodation is offered in rooms, bungalows or on camping sites.  Some parks only have camp sites and ablution facilities are not always present.  The camps are managed by Namibia Wildlife Resorts.

Accommodation has to be booked and paid in advance.  Reservations can be made throughout the year (and for maximum 1 year in advance).  You can contact Focus Travel Centre,, or NWR directly at

Accommodation may only be occupied after 12h00 on the day of arrival and must be vacated before 10h00 on the day of departure.

During school holidays the maximum lenght of stay in Etosha and the Namib-Naukluft is limited to 3 nights per resort.  At the other resorts this stay is limited to 10 nights.

In addition to the accommodation fees (payable in advance), a daily park entrance fee is payable upon arrival in the park (per person per night & per car).  Entry permits are available at the resort's office.  However, entry permits for the Namib and Khaudum must be obtained at the Central Reservations office in Windhoek (Independence Avenue, opposite Zoo Park) or at the resort offices in Lüderitz, Hardap, Swakopmund (Ministry of Environment & Tourism in Bismarck Street) and Sesriem.

Day visitors will be charged the same daily park entrance fee.
