Good rest camp inside Etosha

Only stayed here one night but it is an ideal rest place as you travel across the Park. Quite a lot of people staying there but it never felt crowded or noisy.

The buffet food was good and the staff very attentive.

Halali Camp review

On the drive to Halali we stopped of to take in the Goas waterhole, usually very busy, but there was virtually nothing to be seen. Other waterholes such as Rietfontaine, Salvadore, Suede had very little to offer we think earlier December rains had an effect. The vast open plains also seem to be bereft of wildlife this time.

The Moringa waterhole at Halali did not have many visitors in the evening. a sole elephant on one night, second night did have a group of elephants and two rhino, the third night a spectacular storm hit and everybody left very quickly!

Our best waterole was Kalkheuwel back towards Namatomi, very green area Several visits by all of the antelopes but no predators. Later we did see a lion at Goas eating the remains of an impala.

Chalet was fine but again the 'a la carte' menu in the restaurant did not have many options. Fuel garage helped with tyre change.

Halali Camp

Pleasant experience, but might rate Halali as 2nd best camp in Etosha (after Okaukuelo).

Halali Camp review

on the whole smaller and slightly better laid out than okankuejo and we prefered it. The game was better adjacent to this camp too,even saw a leopard!

fabulous camp

Wonderful location and excellent accommodation. The pool was superb, too. We would have liked two days there.

The waterhole could be a bit of a walk for some people.

A quiet, smaller camp, quite peaceful

Another good centre for some good water-holes. Salvadora and Goas were good for lions, Nuamses and Rietfontein good for elephants, Black rhino visited the camp water-hole at night.

The staff here were, as usual, efficient but seemed to lack a degree of cheerfulness compared to our previous camps. We had no complaints but the atmosphere was slightly different.

The meals in the restaurant were fine, although we felt that the extra charge on the barbeque evening was not fully justified.

Our chalet, no. 56, was excellent and was the same one that we stayed in in 2008.

More animals at Halali Camp

Smaller and cosier than Okaukeujo, the bungalow had an adequate braai and firewood on sale for cooking. Again, it was very hot at night.

The waterhole was further from the camp and less busy than at Okaukeujo but we enjoyed visits from elephant, rhino and kudu.

The large swimming pool was a welcome place to cool off at the end of the day.

The Right place to be to see the Park.

We thought this Camp was much better than the previous one, perhaps because we were in the Park and the camp was not so large.
Staff were still a little less friendly than the farms and lodges we stayed however no complaints.

Food again as a bit large hotel buffet............ie the coffee was cold and they seemed to run out of plates again!

Take an early evening meal was good advice.
Game watching was again more than we hoped for.
