The rooms are not clean, the bathroom doesn't enjoy hot water in the morning The buffet (mandatory) is of poor quality Too many people staying and apart from the waterhole there is nothing to be spotted Onguma provides much nicer lodges a bit further away

We stayed a night at Okaukuejo Rest Camp in the waterhole bungalows. The environment was great. There are opportunities to see a lot of animals coming to drink the water (even lions). But the food was not that good. It was a cantine style buffetwith not a lot of choice (only one side dish, two salads and no sauce, one... More

Okaukuejo Camp did have not the best reviews so we didn´t expect too much of it - and were positively impressed. We stayed two nights in a waterhole chalet, number 34, and we were really impressed by it. The chalet was right in front of the water hole, you just stepped out onto the balcony and there were all the... More

During our safari through Namibia, we stayed over here for one night. We were camping, so to hear lions roaring for two hours very close by, was amazing. The camp is right on a water hole where we saw elephant, lion, jackal, giraffe and various antelope. The restaurant is outstanding, the camp sites and ablution blocks reasonable. The service very...

The waterhole is amazing in the sunsets, a lot of different animals get their drinks here and it is something that anyone visiting Namibia should see. The camping is very average but you have to sleep here if you want to enjoy the waterhole at sunset. No particular issue though (just too many people park in a rather small place).

We staid 2 nights in Okaukuejo Rest Camp chalets, close to the famous water hole. Comfortable rooms, clean and spacious. Perfectly suiting our needs, travelling with 4 kids. Make sure you stay late at night or early in the morning by the hole, and be patient. One of our most memorable moment in Namibia ! Buffet above average, make sure... More

After reading many negative reviews about this rest camp,we were pleasantly surprised by the entire camp. The waterhole is terrific, the observation tower is a great spot to be aware of approaching animals, our room (just a standard double room) attractive and well maintained, and the buffet meals seemed like a good deal. I am glad we did not splurge... More

Right from the beginning the staff were disinterested. We had to wait at reception for about 20 mins before were we rescued by a manager. The receptionists gave the impression that they don't care how long you wait. The noise coming from the kitchen area in the dining room was excessive,The children singing was pleasant but far too long. Food... More

None of other rooms have waterhole view only the premier chalets. These have two bed rooms and two bathrooms and balcony with a view to the waterhole. this chalet could easily fit... More

I enjoyed my stay at Okaukuejo Rest Camp. I stayed in a double room, but I think it was one of the nicer doubles because it was a stand-alone chalet. I liked the room. I had easy access to the water hole, but I didn't have pay the higher rate to be right next to the water hole. That water... More
