We decided to stay at Dolomite so we could see the western side of Etosha. The drive out from Okaukeujo was super, we barely saw a soul (human) and the wildlife was abundant and unabashed by our presence, as opposed to the eastern side. It's a shame that the staff at Dolomite weren't as excited as we were to be there. It's a nice camp, beautiful pool and bar area and the food was good and the staff in the restaurants pleasant enough. I had booked for 2 nights well in advance yet when we checked in were told that we would have to move rooms after the first night because someone else was booked in there. After a lot of discussion they did not move on this so we gave in.
After getting the cart to take us and our luggage to the chalet (as noted they are spread far apart on a hilly path) we discovered that the bed linens were dirty. It took many calls to the front desk to have someone come out and change them (twice)since they changed them on the side of the bed that was not dirty the first time.
Fast forward to the room switch after the first night, they couldn't tell us when the other room would be ready (it was next door) so we spent a good hour messing about waiting to move our belongings, since it is a hike to the main area it wasn't worth us leaving to walk back.
Agreed with other postings, the staff are indifferent, management is lacking and it's not cheap to stay here. But on the flip side, there are great views and the chalets are very nice (when clean!)
