Okaukuejo Camp, Etosha: We didn’t enjoy camping at Okaukuejo. It was very busy, the campsites were small and very few had shade. Not ideal in a wheelchair with assistance needed to get into the ablution block.

Namutoni Camp, Etosha: A much nicer campsite than Okaukeujo in our opinion. Bigger campsites with more shade and not as busy. Help is still required to get to the ablutions in a wheelchair.

Popa Falls Resort, Divundu: We stayed in one of the Luxury chalets. It was very comfortable and beautifully decorated. Wheelchair accessible but very expensive.

The campsites didn’t impress us. They were on a hill, small and very hard, stony ground.

Nunda River Lodge, Divundu (Popa Falls): Very nice facilities and campsites. We had a river front site which was big and had shade. Deep sand in patches so assistance required at times in a wheelchair. The ablution block is quite a distance away from the river front sites and assistance needed to get there. The facilities inside the ablution block are accessible though and very well maintained.

Camp Kwando, Kwando River: Very nice, grassed campsites with lots of shade. Our site had private ablutions which were accessible in a wheelchair with a bit of assistance. Own shower stool required. Nice facilities and pub and restaurant area with a deck overlooking the river.

Ngina Camp, Kasane: The campsites were a good size and well shaded. Facilities were badly maintained. Assistance required to get to ablution block in a wheelchair. Own shower stool required.I don’t know if the campsite is still operating. There doesn’t appear to be any updates or information on the internet.
