Omatozu Safari is an amazing place to stay and definitely one of the best places I have camped at in my life. I was very impressed by the camp sites, which are large and private with lots of shade and soft clean river sand that covers most of the camp sites. Each camp site has it's own private ablutions, kitchenette and mini "boma" (firepit) area. Everywhere you look, you are surrounded by nature, and there is even wildlife roaming the surrounding area. Some highlight sightings for me was to see Eland and Honey Badger close up. One of the things I really liked was that they have hiking trails available. The trail we did took us about 2 hours to do and was not strenuous. You get completely enveloped by nature which is an amazing experience and we even had animal sighting while on the hike. If you are looking for a bit more luxury compared to normal camping, they do have glamping options available as well as a cozy restaurant and bar area where there is also WiFi. The one evening we decided to eat at the restaurant, which was a bit on the pricier side, but still good. If you don't want to eat at the restaurant and rather "braai" at your boma they do sell wood as well. The staff were friendly and attentive, which just rounded off the experience for us. It is good to note that we made a mistake with our booking and they quickly sorted everything out for us as well. Shout out to Carla for being so helpful and accommodating. Overall, Omatozu is a camping experience to dream of and I will definitely be back in the future!

Omatozu was a beautiful campsite that exceeded our expectations - easily the best campsite we stayed in Namibia! Centrally located along the B1 north of Okahandja, so easy to navigate to on your way to Etosha. Each campsite is equipped with it's own large bathroom and kitchen area. We stayed right beside a watering hole. The pool area was clean and relaxing. Raphael was super helpful and kind. The self driving game routes were easy to navigate and offered lots of animal sightings (purple route offered more animals than the green!). Only downside was poor wifi for paying by credit card, so make sure you have cash as a back up. Would stay here again!

The facilities were in order and neat. A bit of lawn would have been nice, but we understand that water and thorns are problematic. Nobody at reception was "in charge". We felt that the R400 cost of driving around the game farm to see the animals, (at the same cost as our accommodation) to be a bit excessive. so we gave it a miss.

A well positioned stopover when travelling to Etosha. Camp sites have private ablutions, with a covered patio area to sit as well as wash dishes. Ablutions are very clean and well maintained and the camp sites are very spacious, with a fire pit, electricity points and lights. There was no wi-fi available. Only negative for me was distance from main road, 4 km and very sandy sites making it difficult to maneuver a caravan. If you don't have a caravan, sand is not an issue. Note that the sand is not fine and does not blow around in the wind.

We were camping there for the first night after arrival in Windhoek, and it was a great experience. Well maintained, well equipped and surrounded by beautiful nature and animals. Even a waterhole was close by. We certainly would have liked to stay longer.

Although the tents where clean and comfortable beds, the following was missing. There is no kettle and coffee/tea facilities in the tents also no small bar fridge. Thanks to the very friendly and helpful manager / chef mister Incent he assisted with a kettle. The food was of high standard and very tasteful. The camp is very quiet and animals are scares. This camp seems to be used for a one night stay over. Thanks again Incent for your service it was great.
