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.

AMAZING !

I wish we could have stayed two nights at Dolomite.

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

Amazing location

Camp with a amazing location. Watching the wildlife moving around from our balcony was superb. Rooms are clean and lovely.

The children stayed in a separate chalet next to us, the fact they could reach us with an internal phone made it comfortable for them.

The infinity pool and its area is beautiful. Indeed the climbs are steep, but this is part of the picture. Don't go there if you have mobility problems!. The golf cart service works quite fast, but we preferred walking ourself in daytime.

Restaurant is good, the staff is very friendly, the service is varying but nothing to complain about.

The game around Dolomite is excellent and absolute not shy (anymore). The best waterholes are the closest to the camp, so you don't have to drive long distances. A good place to take a day off!

Dolomite - lovely setting, lots to see

This end of Etosha very empty as access limited so very privileged to visit. Despite the fact guidebooks suggested it was more scrubland and difficult to see game we saw lots (dry season so near waterholes, but also giraffes on road etc).

Camp a stunning location on a hill overlooking plain and waterhole so we had excellent views of about 30 elephant converging on waterhole at sunset.

Chalets quite spread out on both sides of hill and staff suggested that we phone lodge for an escort after dark, but they did not answer phone and we felt quite safe walking around (I don't think they had enough staff to cope with everyone wanting to go to dinner). it was helpful to be able to phone other rooms. Friendly staff but slightly less exceptional than at most other places.

Literature offered packed lunch but they could not deliver on this, however breakfast ample. All better than we expected for NMR camp. Map suggests a long straight road across reserve but actually plenty of manmade, and hence permanent, waterholes with lots to see. We called briefly for fuel at Okaujuego and were glad we had not stayed there - more people than most Namibian towns!

Dolomite Camp review

We stayed in room 3 for two nights. This NWR camp was functional in comparison to other places we stayed (outside Etosha). It was a nice clean canvas-sided room with balcony overlooking the plain. The bed was soft but comfortable. There was a good shower. There weren't many electrical sockets and no safe. The infinity pool was pretty cold but had a great view!

The food was okay - it was a bit cold sitting in the dinner tents.

The buggy system for ferrying guests back and forth to their rooms (to avoid them being eaten by lions) could easily become irritating - it was very noisy but luckily didn't go on too late at night.

The location is excellent for exploring the quieter western side of Etosha - there were hardly any cars and we saw great wildlife (rhino and lots of lions), much better than over on the eastern/central part. There appear to be few other options for places to stay in the western part of Etosha within the park gates.

Dolomite Camp review

fabulous location but needed to be fit because of the hill. menu choice was limited but what we had was good. view from room was to die for. spent a lot of time watching the elephants below. note that entry via galton gate means paying park fees at the office near the gate and you can only use cash not a credit card as we expected. overall our stay was good. evening meal was included in the price not an extra as on the invoice.
