Okaukuejo Camp review

A real difference to the small lodges that we'd stayed in earlier. The check in process was impersonal and the scale of the place was much bigger than we'd previously experienced. When we arrived in our room the toilet was broken. When we returned to reception they already seemed aware of the problem. A member of staff was able to fix it after a couple of hours, but it was hardly the introduction to Etosha we were looking for. The buffet meals were also a disappointment.

However, this was largely made up for by the fabulous watering hole, where many hours were spent watching the elephants, rhinos, zebra etc

Okaukuejo Camp review

We definitely liked our room on the watering hole . It was a huge plus to have the watering hole right there. Stuart woke up at 4:30AM and was able to walk out and see various animals at the watering hole. We spent many hours during the day just sitting and watching.

We also drove to several other watering holes and enjoyed seeing the area. Our room was nice but felt a bit small and the air conditioner didn't work well.

The staff was very nice and did offer to change our room but at that point we chose to stay put.

Okaukuejo/Etosha was fantastic!

The welcoming was very good, the woman at the check-in counter had a good sense of humour. I was stunned. And had a good laugh.

Our room was good/very good.

And the overall experience of our stay was nearly overwhelming, mostly because of the good behaviour of all those animals. We like to return someday.

A comfortable nights stop

The accomodation has been revamped since our last visit and is now very good and comfortable.

The restaurant is ok but not brilliant and as usual most of the staff are just doing their job.

Okaukuejo Camp review

This is our second visit. Not much has changed, the room we had was excellent, very roomy and super bathroom. Staff in the restaurant can be a bit off-hand. I mean, really, when the place is half full is it too much to ask to have a table for four at dinner instead of the two tables booked separately! Breakfast could be a bit more imaginative. If you arrive after all the muffins are gone that's it, no more are served and you have to put up with only brown bread. They seem to try to cater for just the number of people meaning that a choice of eggs in not always available because they have scrambled them all. I think this is typical of civil servants. Check out was much faster than before and the credit card worked very quickly. We did not participate in any of the activities as we were happy to drive ourselves.

Okaukuejo Camp review

Overall we had a decent time at Okaukeujo.

Our first room - a waterhole chalet was surprisingly good - comfortable and clean, a nice place to stay. The floodlit waterhole is the real star of the show. Watching 3 black rhinos frolic around in and around the water in the dark was brilliant!

The staff were mixed. Most were fine however the restaurant manager and some of the staff there were uninterested and frankly rude. They are clearly understaffed and pretty low on morale I guess. The food was ok, but not as good as Dolomite, and was self service. Breakfast was fine, dinner was average, and again was the NWR standard $170.

Our second room, was a standard room which was a bit shabby and had mouse droppings on the kitchen surfaces and floor which was not great. But on the whole was ok. I think we had been spoilt by the previous places we stayed in !

Waterhole is wonderful

Very impersonal and really did feel like a camp.

However more than made up for by the wonderful location.

Okaukuejo Camp review

This camp was saved by a near waterhole chalet. Extremely corporate. Employees were like little soldiers completing their tasks.

Okaukuejo Camp review

Obviously older, plainer and lacking the style of other camp [Ed: Dolomite Point!], this camp nonetheless had all you could wish for. The air conditioning allowed a good nights sleep!

The buffet style meals were excellent and nearest to more "authentic food" than any where.
