Klein Okevi

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

Okevi is an Oshindonga word that means “from under the rocks”.  ‘Klein’ is Afrikaans for ‘small’. As its name suggests, this waterhole is smaller than its namesake, Groot Okevi.

About: Elephant tend to walk through the parking lot at Klein Okevi, en route to drink. This is a fantastic opportunity for close up sightings of these giants.

During the rainy season, vegetation grows right up to the water’s edge and the waterhole fills up completely.

Many of the animals grazing around Fischer’s Pan visit Okevi to drink.

Water Source: Water-table spring

Water Availability: Stable year-round, but increases during the rains.
