This place is amazing just because of the waterhole. We were camping and not too far from the waterhole. The camping facilities were adequate - hot showers and camping plots spaced out. The highlight was the waterhole at night. One night it was visited by 14 separate rhino along with assorted elephants, giraffe, lions, hyenas, numerous antelope. It was hard... More

We had a water hoeview room. There are numerous seperate buildings at the waterhole and ours contained two rooms. Fairly small but had a fridge and mosquito net. We were about 100 feet from the actual waterhole and this was the best bit about the place. We sat there for hours. The resort is government owned and service average. There... More

Not sure what they were trying to achieve with the campsite area - it's a sandy area (and a few trees) divided by poles and a small round camp fire place and that's it. for 30 or more campsites you have 3 ablution facilities that are way too overcrowded when you have 3 or more tour camping buses around. Maintenance... More

We spent one night in Okaukuejo en route from Damaraland to East Etosha. It is a good stop off point, just inside the Anderson Gate to the park. The accommodation is simple, but clean, and there is a large water hole which is lit up at night. Unfortunate we saw no animals there whilst we were staying as it was... More

We stayed at the campsite. At dawn, the gates are closing and you have to stay at the camground. From the campsite you can reach a waterhole where the whole night animals come by for a drink. We saw 4 black rhino's at the same time at the waterhole (01-october 2014). Very special. But I have to say that we... More

We had a wonderful trip to Etosha. The recently refurbished waterhole chalets are lovely. And the floodlight waterhole a treat. We even went out at 2am to check what was there and were rewarded with 3 rhino. Rooms are well laid out with AC, fridge and coffee making facilities, spacious bathroom and your own private screened seating area. Game was... More

OKAUKUEJO CAMP Etosha Nat. Park I stayed at the Waterhole Bungalow; they are all newly renovated, with AC, fridge and two outside seating areas, as well as a nice bathroom. These units are all just a few steps from the waterhole for some wildlife viewing (floodlight at night). The camp is a good place to to start self driving tours... More

We preferred the Halali Rets Camp but this one is pretty good too. The comfort levels are the same (pretty high) but Okaukuejo is way more crowded. Dinner time feels like a mall food court but the game steaks were excellent. The pool is greta for kids but not for swimmers (it's small and round, compared to Halali's regular size... More

It seemed that Okaukuejo waterohole was one of the most frequent. It also means that there can be a lot of people all year round.We stayed there in the dry season, in July, and this was one of a few where there was water. We tried to find more waterholes but most of them were parched so then we stayed... More

We were so grateful for our travel agents booking of the accommodation next to the water hole. This allowed regular night time visits. We saw 5nr rhino, 7nr giraffe, and 3nr elephant all in the same evening. Not so good the next night when 2nr lion showed up and the other animals didn't! Meal time was a bit chaotic with... More
