Unforgettable stay with delicious food and very neat and clean bungalows. Very helpful and friendly staff make this an unforgettable stay with a wonderful Christmas atmosphere. The game drive was wonderful.

As a last minute change to our plans we left a lodge that we were in and spent a night here. It was a great move. The views are stunning and we were privy to the most amazing lightning storm that evening. Rooms are great, the view from the infinity pool and main deck is spectacular. I do wish that there was, even a small, 'a la carte' menu as the price of the buffet is quite steep especially for a family with a dieting teenage daughter and young son. I do think that there should be an alternative for the "not so hungary". Other than that, the overall experience and proximity to Etosha was great. I will be back.

Me and my family visited etosha safari camp for 3 nights over the new year,we enjoyed every moment, especially from the friendly staff all of them later known by name...dinner in the courtyard with entertainment each evening was the highlight of each day.Liked airconditioned rooms,escpecially when returning to a clean and refreshed camp chalet from breakfast.We had a shortage of fuel upon our return whereby etosha safari camp's staff did not hesitate to assist in this regard,as Okakeujo service station was out of fuel.I really cant think of anything I disliked .will definitely continue to share my superior service experience with all my travel lover companions.

The location is outside the park, ca 15 minutes drive. the views are spectacular from the terrace. it is quite a big lodge with 3 pools scattered on the grounds. The standard of the facility was not up to scratch. The rooms are quite dated, but clean. the bed is very comfortable. the bathroom is old and is in dire need of an update. the restaurant and terrace has good views, the prices are reasonable. Food is good, service very friendly. we spend most time at the pool near the restaurant which is in need of more sun loungers. We did a game drive with the lodge and our son had so much fun ( thanks to the guide Dennis) and we saw a lot of game.

Room Tip: try to get a room near restaurant /main building otherwise you walk for ages up the hill for breakfa...

We really enjoyed the restaurant and bar and the live entertainment at night is an absolute treat! Whatever the band is paid isn't enough. They have real talent and a wonderful character. Close to Etosha too.
