Booking in Etosha National Park

We re planning a visit to Etosha in May 2015. It appears as though you can only book via Tour and Travel agencies and not directly with the Namibian Tourism Board/Offices. Is this correct?

Etosha is operated by Namibia Wildlife Resorts.

You can book directly through them.

Their website is www.nwr.com.na

They have offices in Windhoek, Swakopmund and Cape Town. The e mail addresses are on their website. I use the Cape Town and Swakop offices. They are good there.

You can book directly, but would be better off using an agent. The NWR is notorious for losing bookings. You may not find that out until you are already in country, or worse yet, out in an area without coverage or reception. You would be better served having someone that can keep an eye on the reservations for you. Plus, it won't cost much, if any more.

Take my advice, use an in country outfitter. Several post here on the forum regularly. I used Gemma with Discover Namibia on 2 occasions and had excellent service.

Yes Namibia seems blessed with good agents, plenty mentioned here. Get one on your case and save yourself the hassle if dealing with NWR.
