This was our fourth camping stay and we were frankly very disappointed. The campground was dominated by overland truckers who had little respect for other campers. Pressure on the bathroom facilities with so many people made life difficult and this was low season! The entire resort looked shabby, maintenance overdue with broken doors, broken loungers at the pool, path lights... More

the campsite is nice when you arrive early, the you can get a place. The campsite is overbooked. The pool is nice, also the waterhole The personnel on the reception is outspoken unfriendly and unhelpful. A woman booked us while she was talking with her friend on the phone. Even when the reception is full of clients, they work or... More

We stayed for 2 nights at their big campsite, at this time (second half October), it was very crowded, all places taken, you really need a good spot, otherwise it's no fun at all, there are a lot of big groups and/or overlanders, which makes this place really busy. THE attraction over here is the waterhole, there is always something... More

The first night we booked a twin room, since all the other rooms where occupied. Those rooms are pretty small, but the beds are ok and so is the shower. But then the second and third night we stayed in a Premier Waterhole Chalet with a balcony facing the Waterhole. We really recommend those chalets! They are spacious, clean, two... More

Okaukeujo Rest Camp is a large camp (think Satara size), not set out in circles but spread out seemingly a bit haphazardly in amongst the stones and gravel of the area. Our check-in was slow, they are constantly busy it seems, but we didn't experience the surliness or rudeness mentioned by other reviewers. We'd booked Waterhole chalet 10, which is... More

this resort really only draws guests because of the impressive, awesome waterhole. Lodging, restaurant and service are all very average. The shower was so small and didn't have a curtain, so water splashed outside on to the adjacent toilet seat and floor. Pools were in good order which is always a bonus.

We stayed in one of the rooms close to the water hole and were really pleased with it. The room was fine, clean and comfortable, but the best part for us was the ability to easily get to the waterhole. When we arrived we counted over fifty elephants around the waterhole and there was almost always something of interest to... More

maybe the hotel is not great, but the waterhole is fantastic. You can sit there all night watching the animals come and go without danger. Withing the shortest time we saw several groups of elephants, 3 rhinos, zebra and all kind of antilope, 15 giraffes, jackal and many other animals. Our lodge was next to the waterhole and therefore interesting.

Not at all impressed, the food was nothing worth $230, the staff look miserable and not the least bit happy to serve you. Bedding was dirty. The waterhole was the only highlight of our stay here. Very dissappointed, next time I visit I would rather camp
