Halali Camp review

The bush chalet was basic but clean and comfortable. Food was basic but ok.

Waterhole viewing was not as good as Okaukeujo, but we may have just been unlucky.

The standard of the camp was what what we expected so no complaints,

Halali OK

Halali is in a good position for a trip through Etosha, but as we had a bad experience at Okaukeujo, we opted for meals from the Kiosk, which we were told were available until 6pm each night.

However on the 2 occasions we tried to get food, we were told that they finished at 5pm and it was only after insisting, that we actually got anything. A mis-communication between reception and the kitchen.

Our Bush suite was very nice.

Halali Camp review

Really enjoyed the long night drive. Guide was excellent and spotted unusual animals. On moving to self catering realised there was no light working in the kitchen and it was dark. This was fixed very quickly. We found all staff friendly and helpful.

Pleased to see black rhino and other animals and birds at waterhole which we visited every evening. Well worthwhile

Enjoyed cooking our own evening meal as vegetarians are not really catered for. Usually no protein except at breakfast throughout whole trip with one exception.

Great experience at Halali

Very similar experience as Okaukuejo. Fab rooms, really well run camp with nice swimming pool.
Really lovely situation round the waterhole with loads of animals.
Dinner similar as Okaukuejo , though this time the buffet was full and tidy but the food not quite as good.
Loved having loads of time in Etosha, really special

Halali Camp review

Typical of state run accommodation. Basic but clean. Food good.

Jewel however is the floodlit water hole which was a fantastic experience, with lots of game coming down to drink. Certainly worth staying here just to experience a water hole at night

Halali Camp review

This is the one place we probably wouldn't choose to stay at again. It has a great location in the centre of the park and there was nothing wrong with our room. But the evening meal service was chaotic and the food not very good. We had to queue for ages as they had run out of vegetables, and people were getting very irritable. I'm not sure if we were just unlucky or if it's always like this. We didn't do any organised activities.

We enjoyed the water hole but preferred the one at Okaukuejo as we saw more wildlife and there was more room to watch.

Nice camp...

Well outdoor maintenance
Food not organized well...people standing ...lack of care to renew empty servings.
Our assigned rooms were too far apart
After long conversation at the front desk we got stories they thought we are two families
While we knew the information we gave was of helping us maintain safety and closure to our son.
When we finally got the closer rooms....we found out that the new one...was much better maintained and equipped compared to The assigned ones. By the way this repeated to be true in other places we needed to ask for a room change.

Halali Camp review

Rather the same as for Okakeujo, except this one was a bit more depressing.

The chalets felt a little like a UK 1960s housing estate and the meals were not that great - though they were acceptable.

Halali Camp

Not as good as Okaukuejo. Water hole some way from camp. Buffet style food rather mixed. Good centre for touring Etosha

Adequate

Lacks the spectacular water hole and feels rather soulless. We were only here for a night, and that was enough. Lacks atmosphere, which is strange in such an amazing geography. Rooms functional. Again, no atmosphere, and the place does not feel "cared for".
