An ideal place to stay at in Etosha. the lodges are clean and a good size. When checking in there are separate queues for checking into the rest camp and for paying the park fee. The evening meal is a buffet style meal but you need to book a table as it does get very busy. there is a laundromat... More

We stayed the night before in Halali rest camp in the Etosha NP. However the Okaukuejo Rest Camp is a much better, cleaner and better maintained rest camp than Halali. The buffet dinner was excellent and the family room offered two very large beds and separate bathrooms. The watering hole offered a nice sunset with a Rhino coming for a... More

The rooms are ok, friendly staff and the place is just nice for a family vacation. We enjoyed watching the animals at the waterhole. I got to eat springbok meat for the first time and it was well prepared and delicious, very soft. I was looking forward to seeing Lions and Elephants but next time

Yes the waterhole was amazing, but that is thanks to the animals drinking water from it, not Okaukeujo Lodge, Premier Waterhole Chalets is very expensive, and yes once upon a time it was probably a fancy room, but now dirty curtians, broken tiles. The airconditioners did work which was very pleasant. I don't want to start on the food becuase... More

The campsite is pretty fine. I particularly appreciated the little kitchen areas with running water! The bathrooms were less nice as there are only 3 toilets and showers which is really too few when you have more than a bus on the campsite. When I was there, one of the toilets doors had a broken lock. The shower cabinets were... More

Camping in the summer in Namibia is not for the faint hearted, however the great pool at the rest camp did help to keep the internal temperatures down a bit. The campsite itself is sandy, however I would not have expected lush, lawned campsites as this is the middle of probably one of the driest deserts on earth. The ablutions... More

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
