We moved here for two nights from Onguma Bush Camp and instantly regretted our decision. The place is run down, the food not good at all and the people working the desk are rude! The pools are over chlorinated and not very enjoyable. Don't bother with the night drive, one of the guys on the trip with us knew more... More

The rest camp is too big and not the kind of place we usually stay at. Because of the size and the number of guests staying there, it would be advisable to book Morning Drives in advance. We were there just after the rains so we didn't see too many animals apart from the usual springbok, impala, duiker etc. and... More

My second time here and at the waterhole chalets. I had my 2 kids with me, 12 and 13 and we had 2 adjoining chalets. My kids just loved the waterhole and we spent many hours here and were rewarded by a herd of 34 elephants, hyhena, 12 black rhinos, 3 female lions and then later on a young male... More

Although it is called a rest camp, it is really a resort with chalets for families and couples as well as camping facilities. If you visit Namibia this is a must see/stay place. Depending on your location in the resort you can watch the wildlife come to the permanent waterhole from your balcony or only a short walk from your... More

non c'è personale per aiutare col bagaglio, nonostante il percorso per le camere sia pieno di scale. le stanze non avevano zanzariere nè tende sul letto, avevamo delle zanzare in camera. alle 23 ho cercato presso la reception almeno un insetticida (che non era in dotazione). era già tutto chiuso. cena molto scarsa, a self service, e molto costosa circa...

We stayed in the waterhole front chalets. Unless you get a"premium" waterhole front chalet, you can't really see the waterhole from your room. However, the rooms are nice and they are really close to the waterhole so it's easy to check out the animals many times a day (or night). Definitely worth it to us! We didn't see any other... More

We stayed here for 1 night. The room was basic, but acceptable. The service is friendly, but not up to the standard of the lodges we stayed in outside the park. The upside is the waterhole within a 1 minute walk of most rooms. We saw zebra, oryx, rhino, elephant and a distant glimpse of lions.

We had a great time seeing plenty of wild life around, and Etosha is a must in Namibia. We stayed in a tent in the camp. It looks like that repair investments have been put on hold. Everything worked but looked run down.

My wife and I stayed two nights in July 2014 in Waterhole Chalet 28. Having read some of the reviews on here before we left the UK, we were not sure what to expect. The reality was that our experience was much more positive than some have described. The room was clean and well-maintained and the staff much friendlier than... More

After enjoying a stay at Okaukuejo five years ago, we were a little worried with some of the more recent reviews regarding staff and overall camp condition. We were actually pleasantly surprised on arrival. Knowing that service can be spotty – we were actually blown away by the kindness and efficiency of the check-in people, the attentiveness of the restaurant... More
