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

The service at this place is not that good, but rooms have recently been redone and are very nice. And then there's the excellent waterhole which guarantees non-stop action: lions, elephants, rhino's. There's a restaurant, but there are also many braai pits in case you want to self-cater (there actually is a fridge in the room).

We spent 5 days in Etosha including 2 at Dolomite and 2 at Okaukuejo in a water hole chalet. We checked out several water holes in a loop east of the camp but most of the water holes were dry with few animals. Came back to see lions right outside our door at the main water hole. Many animals waiting... More

We stayed in a chalet close to the waterhole and the sightings were excellent. The overall accomodation was comfortable with no frills but this is what we expected. We did an early morning drive with one of the guides. We saw lions drinking at one of the other waterholes and saw a good variety of other game. The guide could... More

The campsite itself is basic but has hot water and all you need. Also it is only a 2 minute walk to the best waterhole in the park. We saw so much wildlife around that waterhole including our first Rhino which took 7 safari's to finally see. If you could get one of the waterhole chalets it would be amazing... More

We stayed in the Premier Waterhole Chalets for 3 nights, which are very close to the wonderful waterhole, with upstairs balconies where you can lie a watch the events below. The chalets were far more up market than I had expected, with a small lounge by the patio windows, a good sized downstairs bedroom with bathroom and small terrace off,... More

We stayed in the Bush Chalet this time rather than the waterhole chalets we are glad we did, as it was quieter here but not too far from the waterhole which is stunning especially at night with so many Rhinos, we also had lots of elephant and even lions came to drink; much more action than in April. Breakfast was... More

Mouse droppings in my room!!! The people did not seem to care when I told them about it. Staff was looking for food in trash bins in front of my room Lots of jackals wondering around at nighttime looking for food... The fact that this camp has recently been renovated worries me as much work needs to be done. Still... More
