Renostervlei waterhole in the western section of Etosha National Park

Renostervlei means ‘rhino pond’ in Afrikaans and refers to the Black Rhino that frequent the area.

About: This waterhole consists of a concrete basin supplied by a windmill with a muddy depression behind and to the right. Unfortunately, the mud hole is not clearly visible over the basin which can hamper photographers.

This is a busy waterhole and Black Rhinos are often seen here in the late afternoon. Groups of Elephants also appear around this time, while mid-day is the time to spot lone Elephant Bulls.

Mornings are the best time for photographers as you are facing into the setting sun at dusk.

Water Source: Borehole

Water Availability:  Year-round
