Klippan waterhole in the western section of Etosha National Park

The name of this waterhole refers to a rocky depression in the ground that is filled with water during the rains. An artificial waterhole has been constructed alongside this pan which provides water year-round for visiting game.

About:  Klippan is surrounded by grass plains dotted with acacia trees and is an excellent spot for photographers both in the early morning and late afternoon. It is located close to Dolomite camp so it is easy to get there early and linger later.

Ducks and other aquatic birds frequent this pan. You may also get to see Ant-eating Chats, Namaqua and Double-banded Sandgrouse, Kori Bustards, Secretary Birds, as well as Fawn-colored and Sabota Larks. About 3km along you will come across a cluster of Leadwood trees at Omumborombongapan where you can see a sociable weavers’ nest.

Water Availability: Year-round
