We chose to stay outside Etosha, and try out the Taleni Lodge.
It is moderately rustic, and other than being able to hear a few neighbours at their braais at night, peaceful.
We were pretty much gone from dawn to dusk to Etosha, so did not make use of their facilties other than the restaurant which was buffet-style and - surprisingly, given this is not a 5 star outfit - really, really good! We had very different food options on the two nights we stayed, no repetition, and everything was delicious.
The helpful, chatty, cheerful staff were lovely.
The lodge is a good base for Etosha- about 25 mins drive from one of the entrance gates.

For anyone who loves the outdoors..the bungalows/tents are very comfortable, the open air bathroom nice even if a bit chilly at night and early in the morning, but the location of this village is ideal to start the exploration of the Etosha National Park from the Anderson Gate, being only 2km away from it. You can also book in advance a well-organized drive with the lodge’s open car. Unexpected, the Wi Fi in the lobby. The food is very good and various, as it’s the breakfast buffet. There are three different (dull) restaurant areas, while the bar has more personality. The staff is very kind, polite and professional, especially Hilton!

Really loved Etosha Village, and if I'd known how great it was, I would have booked here for longer. The tent was wonderful - comfortable beds, airconditioning, outdoor shower with great water pressure, and a private outdoor kitchen and seating area. The buffet meals were wonderful - the main part of the meal was cooked to order by the chefs: I had wonderful omelettes for breakfast, and steak cooked perfectly for dinner. The 24-hour refreshment station was a wonderful idea - teas, coffee, hot chocolate, and snacks available all day, with takeaway cups available (I stopped here on my way into the park each morning to grab a coffee and cookies to have inside the park).

The staff could not have been more pleasant and helpful, and the laundry service was very efficient. Also, the shop is well-stocked, and additional food supplies can be ordered, if you want to make your own meals at the kitchen at your tent.

Didn't get to meet Spotty their semi-tame zebra, but hopefully next time, Highly recommend.

This was one of our highlights. Fantastic accommodation, good food, hospitality and good customer relations. The buffet (I hate buffets!!!) was really nice. Lots of game and a good variety. Coffee was available throughout the day. WiFi in the middle of nowhere, also nice. Will certainly return!

While not likely to be the most glamourous accommodation in Namibia this camp has a great location close to the park. The food was excellent ,very fresh and prepared by great chefs in front of you. The accommodation is unquie if not a little rustic as you can share your bathroom with a few furry friends but hay that is just part of your holiday story. Our guide Edward was amazing and we highly recommend you go on a guided trip into the park with him. We saw 16 lions, 3 cheaters and Rino just on one trip. The cosy fire lit for both breakfast and dinner was a treat. The bugs around the swimming pool however need some action by staff.
