We didn't visit Moringa during the day, but did two consecutive nighttime visits. Halali was mostly empty during our stay (due to covid), so I don't know what the Moringa experience would be like with crowds. But we loved our nighttime walks to the waterhole, with the slight scramble thru the rocks (bring flashlights!). Both nights, we watched several black rhinos, hyenas, and lots of swooping owls. It was absolutely mesmerizing.

It was a drive through on our way back from Olifantrus Camp to Okaukuejo. We stopped by the Waterhole and we had all the fun looking at wild animals. Pretty huge ass elephants and yooo, this was also the day I saw Elephant tities y'all, I mean, Elephant mammary glands are located on the chest, just like us (humans).

It was so fascinating.. hahahahah, I died, but ya, also, the oldest female elephant leads the herd. Cool right? Women do lead, hihi. winks

Take your time! Just sit and be in the present. Take a half hour and just be. This is a really good waterhole with lots of wildlife passing through.

This place is why you came to Etosha. Not just about driving around. An opportunity to get out the vehicle and sit with a drink or ice cream or take some pics.

Just spend a little longer though.

This is one of the best waterholes in Namibia. There is a floodlight during night time, so you can see the animals. You are sitting above them on some rocks. There are always elephants, black rhinos, hyenas and other wildlife coming to drink during the dry season. Saw one African Wildcat this time and the honey badger is also often seen.

Moringa waterhole at Halali is floodlit at night, and you can walk to it 24 hrs a day. Some people believe this is the best waterhole in Etosha. We booked into the accommodation then went to the waterhole where there were impala and zebra. Our room here was next to the fence and was fairly standard, but we didn’t come for the room. Near sunset we returned to the waterhole where there were many people but there are also plenty of vantage points. About 22 elephants (including 4 babies) arrived. The elephants stayed for about an hour, until the sun was setting. During twilight we saw a jackal, hundreds of helmeted guinea fowl, kudu, and 6 hyenas which came in ones or twos. Then when it was dark a mother and baby rhino came. They too stayed at the hole for a long time, and we saw the mum chase a couple of the hyena away. Later another rhino came. People had seen a leopard at the waterhole the previous 2 nights about 10pm, but not when we were there.

The Moringa water hole is a short walk from the Halali lodge, and even in the heat of the day is worth the effort, as it tends to attract many animals, especially in the dry season when water throughout the park is scarce. When we arrived at the water, there was a herd of elephants just arriving from the opposite side, and scaring off the impala and springbok which were present.

This watering hole is close to a resort so easy to get to, shade and facilities nearby.
You are certainly likely to see elephants morning and afternoon and we also later saw vultures and giraffes.
There are larger and better watering holes so ensure you visit them too.
