Wolfsnes waterhole near Okaukuejo Restcamp in Etosha National Park

The name of this waterhole refers to the hyena dens often spotted in the area and is Afrikaans for ‘the den of a wolf’.

About: Wolfsnes, located on the edge of the pan, was one of the first contact springs to dry up during the drought of the early 1980’s, and remains so today.

Cape Fox can be seen when driving between the Wolfsnes and Leeubron turn-off’s, as there are a large amount of rodent colonies here as a food source for them. Secretary birds and Lappet-faced vultures are regularly seen nesting in the low trees just south of the parking area.
