The Etosha national park offers various camps for tourists in which to stay, typically the most popular being Okakuyu, Namatoni and Halalli. Within they are a number of accommodation options from camping to sleep and breakfast. What make these camps stand out are the water holes around which each is built. While setting out throughout the day on game drives is actually recommended, the camps have curfews unless by using an organised night drive with an experienced ranger. Within the camp however, at night, one can view game visiting the waterhole not 100m from where you sleep. It really is one of the biggest holiday experiences you'll have. While the Etosha national park is almost certainly the jewel within the crown it's by no means the be all and end all of Namibian holidaymaker destinations.
