We spent one night at halali, it’s a huge camp in the heart of Etosha. The rooms are a bit run down, but well equipped. The beds are very comfortable and the facilities are great! The waterhole is perhaps one of the best in the park, we saw 6 hyenas and 8 rhinos in less than an hour. The staff are very friendly and helpful. A short drive out of the camp allowed us to see the elusive leopard. A great stay!
The second night at Etosha was spent here. The room is fine and it was clean. I didn't think the breakfast buffet was very special. It served its purpose. Same goes for the room. For a 1 night stay, it is fine. There is a waterhole nearby, with a nice view for sunset.
The campsite has it's good points, like a great waterhole and the location. But the campsite itself doesn't have much shade. The pitches are unclear as the set-up of the braai and table are different and the numbers are not always clear where they belong. Campsite was full, and our neighbours were very close-by with a large setup. Upon check-in the receptionist was friendly but nothing then that. Restaurant is overrun by tour groups during lunch time and it looks like they get special treatment as all other guests had an extra long wait. But the worst thing was the campsite ablutions. They are in complete disrepair. Toilets with broken locks, and tanks that don't stop running (what a waste of water!), leaking soap dispensers. And it took me 3 different toilet blocks to find a shower that didn't flood over the cubicle and all of them have broken/missing tiles. They would do good to close one ablution block at the time for full repairs.…
If you want to stay in Etosha Halali is a good place in the middle of it. 140 euros for a bungalow is way to much money for what you get. Lucky us it was not crowded so we did not have a buffet but we could choose 4 different main courses. The vegetarian option did not taste well. Nice waterhole within a sort walk.
Old facilities at the campsite, but a tiny bit cleaner that Okaukuejo. Maybe because there were quite many toilets/showers spread around the camping site. The game drive around Halali was very successful in spotting animals despite the previous night's storm.
