Halali Camp review

Much quieter than Okaukuejo and as the room was the bush chalet very acceptable, Food was good and better than Okaukuejo and service acceptable.

The outside waterholes were good with an afternoon sighting of leopard strolling in front of the car the highlight.

Wildlife at Halali

The camp was just as good as we remembered it having been there in 2007. The accommodation was good though we were at the furthest point to the waterhole so at night some people may feel more comfortable in using the car than walking. It operates in much the same way as Okaukuejo and similarly the restaurant and other facilities are similar and much the same - a quite adequate standard.

The waterhole is good and best for photography in the morning or at night. The seating though is pretty poor being on a few hard benches or on very uneven rocks. It would not take too much investment to improve this situation and make it both safer and more comfortable for guests. It was still an enjoyable stay with good wildlife sightings and several waterholes in the vicinity.

Halali Camp review

On check in the camp had no record of our booking, but could see we had a valid voucher and had stayed the previous night in the park and had valid bookings for the next few days. They very quickly conceded the error was NWR's with the happy result that despite ostensibly being full, we were given a rather nice bush chalet, an upgrade from what we had booked. It was a rondavel, with two bedrooms, bathroom and living room. The kitchen was also equpipped with crockery and utensils.

There was an outside braii area too. It was a very short walk to the restaurant.

The kitchen staff seemed to work hard, but the restaurant staff were pretty unmotivated and slow.

The waterhole was amazing at night - a short walk from camp under the stars to see white and black rhino and elephants.

Rhino at Halali

Halali Camp was much quieter than Okaukuejo Camp with a much quieter waterhole as well though thankfully not nearly as crowded and noisy as Okaukuejo waterhole. There is also a fairly reliable rhino which visits the waterhole everyday and we were lucky enough to see a leopard as well.

We went on a night drive where we saw an incredible 8 rhino around a waterhole though not much else. We also travelled from here to Chudop waterhole which was a fantastic place and you could have sat and watched the animals for hours.

Halali Camp review

The camp was very quiet.

The waterhole had fewer animals than Okaukuejo but the rhinos were the stars. A giraffe poked its head over the fence to look at the humans having coffee on the patio.

Halali Camp review

Again, our expectations were not that high. But the rooms were fine, and the service good.

In the restaurant, dinner was in line with or better than expectations. Breakfast was excellent, including great porridge!

Good stop

Halali was a comfortable stop. The watering hole is a good place to see wildlife, and the rooms very comfortable, but with no frills.

The service at the kitchen was excellent, but I felt that reception was fine, but a little less helpful than other lodges we stayed at.
