ENP attracts 200,000 visitors annually and accounts for 45% of all park usage fees in the national park network. ENP has the potential to attract more tourists and earn more revenue for the country if the following institutional arrangements are addressed:

The current management and organizational structure leads to reduced incentives for park level managers as authority is centralized in Windhoek and several organizational interests compete resulting in limited delegation of authority to ENP to manage its own affairs, control its budget, and develop a business or cost centre culture.

The parastatal Namibia Wildlife Resorts (NWR) operates tourism establishments inside ENP in four locations: Okaukuejo, Halali, Namutoni and Onkoshi. The relationship between MET and NWR is not clearly defined in terms of roles and responsibilities towards the use of the available resources in the Park. A Clear definition of roles and responsibilities of each partner (MET & NWR) will make it easier for park management to plan effectively.
