We stayed at the camping for two nights before we head to the airport. The camping is nice and clean but it can be a bit scary with all the animals wondering around. There is a guy though chasing the baboons at least in the morning. The area is very nice and we booked a safari and we enjoyed it... More

We have visited three NWR's in the last couple of months and are a bit perplexed about who they actually cater for. Their prices are rather high in comparissen to what they offer, esp. in terms of service and the finer touches one would expect to go with the pricetag...... We find the staff very friendly, but clearly lacking in... More

We stayed at the "resort" ... up the hill from the camp. It's interesting to note they don't have a page on Trip Advisor ... we think we know why!! Rooms are old, tired & in need of an overhaul. Windows didn't have bars ( to keep baboons out), flywire so we suffered several airless nights without cool air as... More

Lovely campsite. Well maintained and in a stunning setting with the opportunity to do a short walk up to the top of the plateau. Let down by a group of off-duty staff (I think) playing their car stereo at full volume while `hanging around` in the afternoon. Not quite the peaceful environment we were hoping for! Also, be wary of... More

This NWR camp is in a great location on the side of the Waterberg plateau. There are some walking routes you can undertake and I definitely recommend the one to the summit - the views are amazing. It is not a flash camp but that is reflected in the price. The lodges are clean and on the large side. Just... More

The place is beautiful with lots of mongooses, dik-diks, warthogs and baboons all around and they don't really care about the human presence. The breakfast was really good! I was disappointed because the next day we went to do the early game drive and they gave us a bag of breakfast that was not very good. The game drive itself... More

Another mediocre NWR resort. A good location with a nice swimming pool but the rooms are in need of some maintenance with poorly fitted and dirty windows, no air conditioning and not even a fan in the living area. Restaurant menu very limited and food quality spotty, I had to send my ostrich back because it was very tough where... More

We stayed here two nights at the campsite. This location is very big! The reception, shop and campsite are down the hill, above is the swimmingpool and restaurant, and above are the lodges. We used the car to get to the swimmingpool and restaurant up the hill, it is about 15 minutes walk. The forest and hills here look beautifull,... More

We stayed 1 night in a bush chalet. The place overall lacks maintenance and charm altogether. Nor the room nor the restaurant are welcoming. The walk to the top of the waterberg is very nice. Not sure it justifies the stay there though...

We came to Waterberg to do some hiking and whilst that was enjoyable (although they could do with updating their map and marking the trails a little better), this NWR rest camp was the worst we stayed at in all of Namibia; - rooms are filthy, spent an hour removing giant spiders and other creatures before going to bed, feet...
