Famous for its floodlit waterhole Okaukuejo Rest Camp is also the administrative centre of Etosha. The rest camp was formerly a military outpost founded in 1901 and the tower was added in 1963. The waterhole is a hub of animal activity starting in the early hours of the morning. Especially during winter diversity of game congregate in close proximity to the camp to quench their thirst. After sunset, floodlights illuminate the waterhole. This is the best time and place to see the endangered black rhino. This archaic mammal can often be seen drinking alongside lion and elephant.
