Helio waterhole near Namutoni Restcamp during the dry season in Etosha National Park

During the 1890’s the German Schutztruppe sent helio signals to Fort Namutoni from dolomite koppies close to this site, hence the name Helio.

About:  Helio used to be supplied with water by means of a pump until 1992, when it was closed in favour of the Moringa waterhole. All that remains today is the concrete water trough and a view of Helio koppie from a different angle.

Water Source: Unused artificial waterhole

Water Availability: closed
