Namutoni Fort is located in Etosha National Park. It dates back to a German police post, built before the turn of the century, and was later used as an army base and for English prisoners in the First World War, before being restored to its present state in 1957. Perhaps as a reminder of its military past, each sunrise and sunset are observed by a bugler calling from the top of the watch tower, in the fort’s north-eastern corner – onto which you can climb for a better view of the surrounding country as the sun goes down.
