This rest camp has the best of views in the world...........I've been visiting over the past 25 years and it is still a heavenly place. The water hole makes you feel as if you are in the middle of the action! The chalets have over the years been regularly updated. However we booked a front waterhole facing chalet...but alas you...

The rooms are good and the bed is confortable. The only drawback is the food. Very limited choice , and when it's 8pm there is no food. Literally , I saw groups that had nothing to eat when they got to the table they reserved. The plates and cutlery are nor enough , we even had to give some spoons... More

Apparently the management read the negative reviews because I found our stay there very pleasant, with no problems at all, The "stadium" seating stand near a waterhole was just awesome. Our room was clean, the beds comfortable. The restaurant food was fine--not luxurious, but very good. That waterhole made the stay for me. The camp is large but very neatly... More

Stay here if only for the waterhole experience at sunset and at night. Herds of elephant as the sun sets, oryx, giraffe, springbok - and later in the evening Rhino - amazing opportunity you can only experience if you stay at the camp. Worth dealing with large groups of travelers, sub standard good and simple (but clean) rooms. If you... More

This camp is very popular and always busy, the highlight being the wonderful waterhole which attracts all kinds of game day and night. We camped here for the 5th time and feel that the ablutions were inadequate. Overland trucks with many guests cram the kitchen area and leave the bathrooms in a terrible mess. I was shocked to find a... More

We stayed one night our first Etosha experience. The waterhole was breathtaking, though the fact that it is in the garden of the very expensive chalets is a bit awkward. The place to camp was very basic with some holes in the ground and ablutions block further away and also basic. No shade, restaurant buffet standard. We only stalled one... More

Stayed here one night as we couldn't get in anywhere better. VERY average in every way. Staff at checkin and beyond are phoning it in although you can't really blame them given the volume of people going through. God awful food and basic accommodation. My friend's toilet overflowed, although that was fixed fairly quickly. The waterhole is great but despite... More

We camped in Okaukuejo restcamp in July and was bitterly disappointed with the terrible road conditions and the general attitude, sometimes just plain rudeness, of the staff. In more than one occasion the staff was using the tourist ablutions and bathed themselves in the basins, leaving the bathrooms in a terrible mess. Due to the poor road conditions we only... More

We had a hut by the waterhole which was well positioned for watching the comings and goings. Wildlife visits to the waterhole were pretty much constant, including by Black Rhino which were regular visitors between dusk and early evening (and maybe later too, but by 9.00pm we had had our fill). The food in the restaurant was good, but done... More

Basic Campsite with good main faciliteis, swimming pool, shops and restaurant. Beautifull day and night game watching at adjacent waterhole with lot's of elephants, Rhino's, Giraffes, Springboks and Oryx. Please be aware of wild Jackals, frequently visiting the camping site between dusk and dawn.
