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

We stayed here in June 2015, because of the good reviews we have read about the waterhole. We stayed in waterhole premier chalet and that was really fantastic. 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

Also called the "Etosha Rest Camp" Okaukuejo is a great place to begin your game viewing in Etosha Game Park. There is a watering hole adjacent to the hotel grounds where you will always find a few or many game animals quenching their thirst. It is also lighted for night viewing. Definitely a plus for this hotel. The individual cabins... More

We didn't end up staying at this rest camp but we did have food there and visisted their watering hole. The whole area seems crowded and closed. It seemed much smaller than the other camps because of the closed feeling it gave you. We opted for Halali.

We went as part of Joules Verne trip June 2015 – It looked much the same as other lodges. But our room was average and dull – someone reported that “The place is run down, the food not good at all and the people working the desk are rude!” Well, we went for the evening meal and had luke warm...

We spent two nights at a waterhole chalet. For watching the animals at the waterhole any accomodation type would do fine, it's just a short walk to the waterhole. The chalet was well equipped, clean and spacious. The food and the service were very good, not top of the tops, but fine. The place of course lives from the waterhole... More

We stayed at Okaukuejo for 4 nights in April 2015. The accommodation was comfortable and clean. Unfortunately we had trouble with the electrical supply (the aircons and stove REFUSED to work!). When enquiring at reception they stated that maintenance knows about the fault and is working on it (for how long, one can only speculate!). My dad however, had a... More
