We visited out of season, when there had been rains, and predators and even elephant proved hard to find in Etosha. Pretty much every waterhole we visited along the road network had a few springbok, some oryx, birds and pretty well nothing else. So it was a relief to discover that this waterhole, accessible from the camp, is a busy... More

We were pleasantly surprised about the accommodation at the Restcamp - we stayed at the Waterhole -2 beded chalet nr W2 - one of the best situated right in front of the waterhole; It is however, quite a distance from there to walk to the restaurant, shop(s) and pool; The chalet was a little small, but it had a wonderful...

We stayed one night at Okaukuejo camp on our road trip where we also drove across Namibia. Okaukuejo has a nice pool, nice restaurant and a relatively well equipped camp area, including a small convenience store. We found that the bathrooms and toilets at the camping area could have been better maintained and a little cleaner. There seem to be... More

We stayed in the campground at Okaukuejo and loved it! Reception staff could have been a bit more efficient, but they were friendly. The campsites have loads of shade and are well spaced. The ablution facilities were clean. And of course the water hole is nearby - and the wildlife viewing was spectacular! The shop sold all the basics and... More

We stayed in two adjacent waterhole rooms. Very well appointed but the highlight was of course the waterhole. We stayed for 2 nights on our way to the Caprivi Strip. Our rate included breakfast but we paid for dinnder at the camp restaurant. Quite adequate. As we had our own car, we could set off and explore Etosha whenever we... More

I did notice during my tour of Namibia that in the NWR (Namibian Wildlife Resorts) the service is not as good as the privately owned resorts. In the privately owned resorts the teams make that extra mile to ensure the guests are feeling "at home". There is definitely room for improvement on the NWR side.

Our party of 3 adults, stayed one night in two rooms at Okaukuejo, coming from Halali Rest Camp. We were happy with our Okaukuejo rooms, although they were much smaller than the Halalil Bush Chalets. So small that 2 people had trouble moving around in them at the same time. It had a/c and bed nets. We missed the spaciousness... More

Arrived without a booking and was lucky to get a chalet right in front of waterhole. The accomodation was great, very clean, comfortable with good beds. It is just beds and bathroom no other space really but that's ok. Each chalet having a nice seating and table area outside. The chalet location was amazing, only about 20meters from waterhole viewing... More

This place is a gem! The watering hole in the back is unreal! They also serve great food (buffet style) and the accommodations are beautiful and very natural and clean. You should definitely stay here for sure!! It is well worth it!

Early morning game drives were fab, with knowledgeable guides. The waterhole was interesting as it was pot luck whether you saw any game - over 3 nights we saw Lion, Rhino, lots ofo Buck & beautiful birds. Staff were charming but food was below average, cold and dry. Our room near the waterhole was small , adequate and charming. We... More
