Halali Camp review

Run by the government company as a model of inefficiency. I just wanted to get hold of them and shake them firmly.

It could be soooo much better with a bit of imagination and oomph, as it has so much to offer.

Halali Camp review

Again this is a restcamp not a private Lodge so the staff attitude is different, efficient but not the charming smiles we had found elsewhere!

We had to ask for 2 replacement bulbs as our bathroom was in darkness. As it was late in the day we had to climb on the toilet and change them ourselves.

The bed was jammed into an alcove which caused you to hit your head as you got up in the night.

The rooms were spotlessly clean and again tea & coffee making facilities, plus a fridge.

We stayed in a bungalow but the individual rooms looked OK too, despite the toilet being in the way of the washbasin. Forget it and have a shower instead!
This Waterhole was a little walk-away down ill-lit paths, so take a torch. The seating area is a tad rocky, so can be dangerous if you are not fleet of foot.

Halali Camp review

Crowded, dusty camp sites. But location inside the park and walk to lit water hole make up for it.

Staff not very helpful in recommending where to go when.

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

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.
