There is only one reason to stay here : the waterhole. You can really see a lot of animals. We were there late afternoon , after dinner and I returned to the waterhole 3 times during the night : amazing. Several giraffe , elephants , rhinos , ... visting the waterhole. For the rest : the Waterhole units are nice... More

I took a very long time pondering whether I should book two nights at the infamous Okaukuejo Rest Camp - known on TA for the poor standards of service. In fact many people I spoke with had advised against staying at this Rest Camp, but I'm glad we spent two nights at this amazing place. The waterhole does most of... More

The Waterhole is what makes this camp. Most of the larger animals can be viewed at the waterhole inside the camp which is lit 24/7. The bathrooms are basic and often a long walk from some sites. There is a shop that sells the basics: Beer, cool drinks, ice creams etc. There are 3 pools of varying sizes adjacent to... More

After camping at (quiet) Olifantsrus camp, the large and busy Okaukuejo camp proved to possess quite a different atmosphere, with lots of people and overland trucks it was quite busy and 'touristy'. Campsites were OK, with electricity, braai facilities, clean sanitary facilities and water taps, although maintenance of some of the sanitary facilities could have been better. Okaukuejos waterhole attracts... More

When you enter the camp the restrooms are in an absolute dismal state. One is to scared to use them. The shop is a poor excuse for one and the same can be said of the curio shop. The swimming pool is up to standard and was clean. The rooms are small but really beautifully done. Unfortunately you cannot prepare... More

We camped here and it was awesome. Not because it was our first visit to Etosha but we had a nice spacious campsite and we where greeted by a herd of passing by elephants immediately after setting up camp. The only negative thing is the few and far ablutions.

This is the main administrative camp site of Etosha. It is busy but the camp is well laid out although very dusty. We used camp site was 37 close to the water hole and although far from the ablutions has an excellent view of the pan. There is water and electricity with a braai, but no fire pit. The waterhole...

The water hole here is amazing! The waterhole chalet room was ok but a bit cramped. Tea setup in the room. The cover to the A/C remote was missing so batteries did not sit properly, making adjustments a challenge. I understand that wifi was available for purchase but that it was incredibly slow. The food was not particularly good and... More

Being in Etosha helps make the day(s) of driving more rewarding. The waterhole itself makes staying here above average. The beds in the waterhole chalets were nice and comfortable by African Rest Camp standards. We slept well. The accommodations were cleaned each day. Very basic. No complaints.

Nicely decorated bedrooms, with a small seating area and small bathroom with shower and loo. Picnic area has good braai facilities but it lacks benches near the braais. Comfortable single beds. A lovely open water hole which was very popular with the visitors but insufficient benches when the camp is full.
