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.

Nice contrast with Okaukuejo Camp.

This camp was smaller and quieter than Okaukuejo, a welcomed change. The grounds were lovely and the overall location of the camp much more wooded and secluded. Our wildlife viewing was disappointing, but not the fault of the camp.

The waterhole has an interesting layout. The water level seemed to be low which may or may not be the cause of very little animal activity.

Food here was the same as Okuakuejo. The service was better but we were no longer with a large group.

Simple room, nice water hole

Our room was very simple here. But totally adequate for us. We don't need luxury. Just clean and safe. The water hole set up was quite intimate feeling. Kind of natural arena style which kept you closer to the animals.

We caught a rhino just after sunset at the watering hole and this was magical. We didn't stay long at the watering hole. The fire had burned a lot near Halali. I hear a trash burn got out of control. So sad. Totally preventable.

Halali Camp review

We were in a 2-bed chalet - spacious and nice with patio and BBQ. Camp is large and spread out.

By far the largest swimming pool we encountered on our trip.

Good viewing area of waterhole in this camp - jackals, fox, hyena and rhino spotted in the one hour we went at night.
