We stayed in one of the chalets and really enjoyed our stay. The chalet had a very comfortable bed, good shower, tea and coffee making facilities, a fridge and a lovely space outside for having a braai/BBQ. On site you have a pool, restaurant, bar, shop, fuel station, Curio shop and post office. One warning, don't rely on fuel in...

The water hole chalet suited us fine. There was adequate space, a patio and proximity to the water hole. The bed was large and comfortable. The dinner at the resaurant was a bit basic, but not a bad buffet at all. The serving staff did not have much to do with it being a buffet, but they could have been...

This camp is fairly basic, the plus side is being able to make an early start and be already in the park rather than waiting outside the gates. We had breakfast included and on first morning this was fine, on the second they had no power and it was all rather chaotic - mainly with people making rather unreasonable complaints!...

If you stay at the Rest Camp you can be exploring in the National Park at sunrise and sunset. If you stay outside you will be much later. Therefore, it is worth staying here to get the best use of your time in Etosha. There is a good waterhole near the double rooms. We sat there for 4 hours one...

We camped at Okaukuejo on our last night and it felt more like a summer campground than a safari camping stop. The campsites were very close together with no privacy and it was loud into the night. It was raining while we were there and a lot of the campgrounds were flooded. It seems like a good stop for people...

Room are ok, but the rates are very expensive. Also it makes not sense to pay per person and not for the room. Staff average, service could improve. Campsite is good, with really good shower and facilities. Pool and restaurant are nice as well.

Thrilled with the family chalet, the air-con was great in the bedrooms, but not the lounge. The rooms were clean and comfortable, but the outside furniture was extremely uncomfortable and could be replaced. For those wanting to braai, the shop was lacking in variety and no fresh produce available. The public areas were well maintained, the swimming pool clean and...

Online reservation on the NWR website for camping was easy. Campsite was okay, but the sites are close together and the facilities are aging. The reason for staying here is the waterhole where we spent the whole evening so really didn't matter too much about the campsite. Lots of people at the waterhole but it quietens off later on and...

My friend and I really enjoyed our few days in Etosha National Park. If you are going there, you don't have much of a choice, but to stay at this lodge. There is a wide variety of rooms. Ours was basic, but clean. The watering hole was a big hit for us. It provided our only opportunity to see black...

Used the campsite so cannot comment on cleanliness of rooms. The campsite was nice and within walking distance of the watering hole, the restaurant and pool. No big issues. The facilities here are much more developed than at Namutoni. The pool was nice and the restaurant was also good. Again would recommend the game drives. We did a PM game...

“Book ahead for the more 'prettier' campsites. Also book guided activities (e.g. night safari) ahead because they sell out really quick.”
