Great Safari Camp

A big thank you to Sabina as she persuaded us to choose this camp and yes would not have missed it . Basic accommodation compared to other places we had stayed at and food in restaurant not as varied choice but the evening watering holes made up for this greatly . We saw some wonderful sights at the watering hole , especially young elephants and a young rhinoceros . Martin and I felt very comfortable allowing the children to set their alarms for 2 am and go down to the watering hole .

We came away from Etosha feeling we would have spent a couple more nights here in this are not necessarily at this park but perhaps to the east as we didn't really cover that area .


Driving ourselves was a great family experience and in our 3 weeks we never felt in danger or out of our comfort zone although I do admit prior to arriving in Namibia I did have some concerns .

Halali Camp

Comfortable accomodation with large bedroom and kitchen/ living room. Enjoyed watching the wildlife at the water hole although there was not much there. Very good location for trips out into the park.

We went out for the whole day to the east and saw lots of animals.

Excellent waterhole at Halali

Disabled persons review: All areas of this lodge were easily accessible.

The three main camps in Etosha are more basic than the private lodges but we expected that. Rooms at Halali were clean and well equipped and despite the number of rooms it was quiet in the evenings. The waterhole is set away from the accommodation so was quiet and we saw elephants, giraffe, zebra and various antelope each evening.

A coffee table in the room by the armchairs would have been useful, there being plenty of space for this.

Halali Camp review

Not a good experience - this was overpriced both in the shop and the restaurant. The waterhole was good, but a long way from the camp.

There were several large groups present in the camp during our stay, which affected the service we received.

Halali Camp review

From here you can also access Namutoni and its nearby waterholes quite easily. The food is much the same as in Okaukuejo but the dining room at Halali is nowehere near as good in terms of comfort, layout, ambiance.

But, none of it matters when there are so many different kinds of anaimals to see comparatively easily.

Halali Camp review

Again, the waterhole was reallly interesting.

Could have been more sunloungers round the pool.

Food was good, and it was obliging of them to charge me (the vegetarian!) half price for the buffet dinner.

Staff could have been a bit better informed (for example, we asked for details about the obviously recent bush fire, and the grave at Rietfontein (I think it was there), but the lady at reception didn't seem to know very much.

Halali not as nice as Okaukuejo

Very nice for a National Park lodge.

Rooms were large but in general seemed a bit more tired than Okaukuejo.

Water hole had less wildlife activity compared to Okaukuejo but still a fair bit of night activity including rhinos.
