Our view of Halali Camp
Halali is a restcamp – and that is very, very different from most of Namibia's private lodges; it's unfair to even compare the two. Don't expect much personal attention here – you'll be left to yourselves. Don't even expect friendly, helpful staff – as sometimes you'll be disappointed; standards of service and food can be very variable.
Do expect an amazing location, right in the middle of the park. Do expect a great floodlit waterhole; sitting down with a bottle of wine and a few glasses whilst watching the antics of elephant and black rhino is unforgettable.
Do come if you are interested in the experience of the park, and can ignore quibbles about comforts and service – but better seek out one of the higher-end private lodges (perhaps Ongava Lodge, Etosha Aoba Lodge, Mushara Lodge, or Onguma Tented Camp if these issues are likely to upset you.
