It is also centrally located and is known for very good animal sightings. Suggestion, get to the campsites early after checkout 10:00. Make a list of those that are empty and take to the reception area for an early check in. They will advise if what you are looking for is available. Avoid campsites close to the ablution block unless...

NWR (the official parks bureau) could only offer us a family chalet, far too big but comfortable. Food was OK contrary to reviews. The waterhole was close and, for us, not quite as good as Halali but great all the same. You need to be patient and a bit lucky but we saw plenty all the same.

Etosha is a "must" for anyone visiting Namibia. The waterhole at Okaukuejo is a wonderful place to watch wildlife. The chalets are adequate but a little cramped although the facilities in them are quite good - air con, fridge and mosquito nets. The service levels on our previous trip were not very good and they haven't imporoved at all. The...

As with all government owned accommodation in Namibia, service is poor and maintenance mediocre. The room we had, a bush chalet, was ok. The airco didn't work that well and the water of the shower was all over the bathroom. The food was good, not suburb and the location in general was nice. The waterhole, however was superb! Its adjacent...

We originally were going to stay two nights here, and actually prepaid. Decided one night was enough. Crowded, and no water or electricity all morning, so no showers or flushing toilets. The commodes were filled with waste. The tent camping area was very crowded with large groups of campers. We stayed in many wonderful tent camp areas during our Namibian...

This was our fourth camping stay and we were frankly very disappointed. The campground was dominated by overland truckers who had little respect for other campers. Pressure on the bathroom facilities with so many people made life difficult and this was low season! The entire resort looked shabby, maintenance overdue with broken doors, broken loungers at the pool, path lights...

the campsite is nice when you arrive early, the you can get a place. The campsite is overbooked. The pool is nice, also the waterhole The personnel on the reception is outspoken unfriendly and unhelpful. A woman booked us while she was talking with her friend on the phone. Even when the reception is full of clients, they work or...

We stayed for 2 nights at their big campsite, at this time (second half October), it was very crowded, all places taken, you really need a good spot, otherwise it's no fun at all, there are a lot of big groups and/or overlanders, which makes this place really busy. THE attraction over here is the waterhole, there is always something...

The first night we booked a twin room, since all the other rooms where occupied. Those rooms are pretty small, but the beds are ok and so is the shower. But then the second and third night we stayed in a Premier Waterhole Chalet with a balcony facing the Waterhole. We really recommend those chalets! They are spacious, clean, two...

Okaukeujo Rest Camp is a large camp (think Satara size), not set out in circles but spread out seemingly a bit haphazardly in amongst the stones and gravel of the area. Our check-in was slow, they are constantly busy it seems, but we didn't experience the surliness or rudeness mentioned by other reviewers. We'd booked Waterhole chalet 10, which is...
