About the Local Area
In 1907 Von Lindequist, Governor of German South West Africa (the entrance near Namutoni was named after him) declared an area of 99 526km² as a game park. This area includes the present reserve as well as the pans. The park’s borders have since been changes a number of times, and became known as the Etosha National Park in 1958. In 1970 it was reduced to its present size.
Winters in the park are cool and dry. This is the best time for tourist,
because the animals tent to congregate around the waterholes then. The
rain season usually begins in November, whilst February is the wettest
month if the year. Average rainfall: Namutoni 443mm, Halali 429mm and
Okaukuejo 412mm. Summer temperatures can be as high as 40°C. Winter
temperatures are moderate, with a minimum of 6°C in July (at night).
The First game ranger stationed here was B.J.G de la Bat, who later became Director of Nature Conservation and Tourism. He arrived in 1953 and lived in the camel stables. The present water tower was built in 1963.
It is the main administrative camp in the Etosha National Park, and was officially opened for tourists in October 1957. The Ecological Institute is also stationed here. Research and management of nature conservation in the park is directed from this institute.
