Dolomite Camp review

The camp itself is beautifully designed and situated-public spaces, individual rooms and a really nice pool. We especially loved the rooms with balconies that were so private and peaceful.

The food in the dining rooms was good and staff , when we were there, pleasant. We left by taking the longer road out to the gate because there were water holes noted on our map. All but one of these was closed and we wished the we had known this before we chose this route. We did not take any of the drives.

Great location

Inspite of the great location we found you have to be prepared for the effort of getting to and from your room The pathways are fairly narrow and uneven with steep inclines in places,the only other means of getting to the restaurants and bar etc are via the golf buggies that shuttle guests back and forth.

A lot of the waterholes had dried out so local sightings of animals were limited.

A wonderful place!

We had 2 nights at Dolomite camp.

When we arrived at Dolomite camp and saw the surroundings, the lovely cabins and the smiling staff we were all feeling very spoiled. This is a little paradise taking into consideration the remote location and the harsh environment.

Stunning view from the cabins with a lot of animals moving to and fro the waterhole. Day of departure we watched a beatiful sunrise and hearing the bush "waking up".

The last evening when parking the car, a big male lion put his head out of some bushes only 100m away and gave a mighty roar. This was the highlight of our trip and my heartrate was way above avarege during the few minutes he used to walk around us. Guess we blocked his way when he was checking his territory.

What a great start to Etosha.

Arrival at Dolomite camp was a surprise, with all the rooms nestled into the hillside, almost completely hidden. It wasn't the easiest place for the least able in our group, however, the staff made everything possible, by making sure she did not have to walk anywhere.

The rooms were lovely, ours looked down on the waterhole.

Food and service good

Dolomite Camp review

A great location, with excellent access to water-holes (self driven).

A beautiful camp, but the attitude of some of the staff was questionable. They seemed to be doing us a favour and need a course on customer focus.

Ideal spot for the waterholes.

We did not have to wait many minutes before the golf cart collected us from the car park when we arrived.
We went on the game drive which introduced us to the animals in Etosha; wonderful.

As vegetarians, this was the worst dinner that we had in Namibia!

The tent was very noisy in the wind but comfortable.

Dolomite Camp review

Phenomenal location. Service slightly uneven overall but generally very good, including changing tire for us very helpfully and rapidly when we returned with a flat.

Golf buggy arrangement slightly bizarre but added to fun. V exciting spotting rhinos on self drive.

Incredible view from balcony. Best swimming pool.

Dolomite Camp review

This is another NWR camp that has parking down below the lodge and poor service of pick up and drop off because the person asigned to do pick up has been assigned other duties. It is a long way between rooms so if you arrive while someone else is being dropped off then you are out of luck. Again we had to hike up to this reception area from a remote parking area.

The room was gorgeous. The ride on the shuttle on the narrow side walk was a blast. The driver was very nice too. The food was excellent. I missed having a robe and a blow dryer. We arrived late and left early but enjoyed this place. There were plenty of electrical outlets in the room which was a rarity.

Dolomite Camp review

Great location overlooking plains. Always wildlife visible with lions visiting the waterhole twice while we were staying. Rooms very up market and all with great views. Room 13 has good views of the waterhole and two others may have views but I do not think you can book specific rooms.

Bar and pool area fantastic and well appointed restaurant. For us service at restaurant was slow, largely down to the member of staff serving. That aside the food was good and all the staff very friendly and helpful. We would certainly visit again.

Driving round the waterholes was easy and a lot of wildlife seen, especially elephant and giraffe. At the moment you will not see many other cars in western Etosha, although it looks like they are about to open this area up for more tourists.

The camp is beautiful, the location is perfect, the chalets are very well done with superb views.
