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

The camp comfortable. Food in restaurant extremely expensive. Do self cater if possible. Waterhole with animal traffic awesome. Must be one of my favourite places. Will extend visit next time to more camps in Etosha

We stayed in a waterhole chalet at the Okaukeujo camp for two nights. Our chalets 11 & 12 we're not the closest to the waterhole but the hole could be seen from our stoep. The chalets were beautifully appointed and clean and the individual beds comfortable within the mosquito netting. Only negative comment about the beds...2 single beds with a... More

It is such a shame that NWR's service is so poor. Okaukeujo has all the elements to provide a truly unique experience. It is unfortunately overshadowed by poor service and unkempt bungalows. As a Namibian, I was ashamed to take my European friend to the Rest Camp which is completely overpriced compared to Lodges outside of Etosha offering great service.... More

I travelled for one month with my teen son through Namibia and South Africa: this was our least favorite lodging on the whole trip. Our chalet, D24, was in terrible disrepair with the toilet and shower leaking and the entire chalet smelling of mildew. The rest camp staff, from the grocer to the dining hall to the front office, were... More

Etosha belongs for sure to the top world best national parks. Its unique namely for its wildlife where you can find many mammal and bird species as well as many interesting plants (and as we were there at the beginning of June no mosquitos). You should stay at least 4 days if you want to see the best of....There are... More

Looking past the incessantly irritating people who scare away game by running to the waterhole screaming at the prospect of seeing something.... Okaukejo is a good rest camp. The waterhole is frequented by numerous animals, the floodlights make viewing a 24 hour activity, and the facilities are decent. However, the staff are quite rude (no doubt a consequence of the...

We stayed two nights in the camp and thoroughly enjoyed it. The bungalow had a bbq next to the patio and a small bar fridge inside where we could keep our produce cool, it also had a small freezing section where we could freeze a few packs of meat, also a counter with sink to do dishes. The bungalow was... More

Question: What in the heck were the rustic wood fences for on the lodge patios? I would have sat on a bench for the rest of my life at this lodge. The waterhole was like a planet unto itself. I'm fairly well traveled, but have never seen anything quite like that. As noted in my review title, if you're a... More

Checking in was painful. The woman at the desk clearly did not want to be there, and it was very difficult to get her to answer our challenging questions ("Do you have a campsite available?"). campsites aren't all created equal though - very little shade, and packed together. Also, for what you get, the price is exorbitant. Food was decent,... More
