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.

Halali Camp review

Much nicer and smaller than Okaukuejo. In the centre of Etosha, so close to all the best waterholes.

Nice chalet with a fire on teh terrace.

Halali Camp review

We chose Halali because we wanted a smaller more intimate experience within Etosha and because of its central position.

Although the camp was smaller and less crowded than Okaukuejo they appeared unable to cope with the number of guests present at mealtimes - we had to queue for more than 20 minutes on both evenings, in spite of having booked a specific time slot for the meal. This was probably due to the large number of people on the campsite; several school and scout parties joined the host of occupants of overland pantechnicons and family campers crowding the site.

In spite of the scrum at mealtimes, we don't regret staying here, The waterhole attracted, amongst others, large herds of elephant, spotted hyena, lion, an African wild cat and three rhinos, who proceeded to fence with each other before enjoying a drink as the post-sunset sky turned purple behind them.

The waterholes around the camp were good places to view wildlife too.

Another good place within park

Another amazing water hole - more intimate but no less populated by a variety of animals.

Accommodation and services good. Location location location - so close to many waterholes . We always thought that having seen something unbelievable at 1 waterhole that it could not get better - and then it did

Had the misfortune of a driver reversing into us at speed in the park and having "limped"back to camp staff could not have been more helpful in providing temp repairs to the vehicle.
