We've been to Kruger and the Great Migration in Kenya but this was the best safari we've had even though we only saw one of the Big 5. Nevertheless, we felt that the layout of the Park and the waterholes at this park were far superior to the other parks, just based on the number of animals they seem to... More

I really rate Etosha for its size and the variety of animals. It's an absolute must if you are serious about seeing wild animals on your trip to Namibia. The fact you can drive your own vehicle around the extensive network of roads is a bonus. You never feel the need to go off-road, as everything can be seen from... More

We recently enjoyed our second visit to Etosha. It is perhaps a little far from everything but Etosha should nevertheless be included into one's schedule when touring Namibia - a dry land made up of vast distances. Etosha has three main camps; Okuakuejo (our favourite); Namutoni and Halali. One can camp or enjoy chalet style accommodation to suite your personal... More

We've been visiting the park for the last 15 years - from spending a few days in accommodation at Namutoni, Halali or Okaukuejo to just visiting for a day. In the old days we used to be able to stay in the actual Fort itself which always made our stay extra special due to its long history. Sadly, this is... More

We were at Etosha for 6 days and each day was special. We stayed at Halali in the bush chalets for 2 days and then 4 days at Taleni Etosha Village. The game viewing is realy amasing in Etosha. Obika and Newbrowny waterholes were the best. Although not priority no 1, we did see lions on all 6 days and... More

A great, easy, safe and cheap safari. We took a car from Windhoek and drove around Namibia a bit before entering the park. You pay per person, vehicle and number of days. Rent a 4x4 - the roads can be very bad but nothing a 4x4 can't take. Compared to other countries the roads in the park are great in... More

We spent 4 nights at Okaukuejo camp and 3 nights at Halali resort. The accommodation is comfortable and includes a good breakfast. The rooms are serviced and clean. The kitchens only have a kettle and no braai tools or plates, knives or forks. Take your own if you plan to braai., we did each of the nights.. Okaukuejo waterhole is... More

Okukuejo - great place! had a chalet right at the waterhole. Loved it. Great restaurant, great chalets! really love this camp! Good wildlife viewing. The Dolomite Camp - Beautiful resort, great service, good food, staff needs to be alot more friendly though. Beautiful setting, but the rooms are just far too small.

The game viewing was excellent - have never seen so many lions, rhino and other wildlife. We stayed in okukejo and Halali of which Halali was the most intimate experience. The 24 hour lit water holes are full of surprises with different animals coming to drink and attempt a meal throughout the night. However there are signs of neglect all... More

I really love Etosha because game viewing is extraordinary! It was our third time in the park – last time was 10 year ago – and we recognized that a lot of TLC needs to be done. It is unacceptable that the prizes for accommodation and food are much higher than in the excellent lodges (with really friendly staff members)... More
