Okaukuejo Camp-Room Concern

We had concerns about our room as it looked like it had been broken into . The screens had holes near the latches; the front door latch was broken, and he bottom panel into the bedroom had been kicked in. Air conditioning solved the screen problem and we managed to lock necessary doors. In retrospect, we should have asked for another room.

The flood - lit waterhole was a hit.

A must for the variety of animals

Okaukuejo is big, but very efficiently run.

Rooms are spacious and comfortable.

Staff friendly and helpful

Food good, excellent salads

Wonderful waterhole, with hundreds of visiting animals.

Superb access to other nearby waterholes.

A magnificent waterhole at Okaukuejo

We enjoyed the location of our accommodation overlooking the waterhole - this was an excellent way of viewing the game and birdlife.

The management of the facilities at the camp lacked attention to detail - with a bit more supervision and training the overall experience could be enhanced. The trip from west to east through Etosha was outstanding - we saw so much especially at the waterholes.

Okaukuejo is a great camp

Bar service in the restaurant is poor - the logistics of the buffet meals is bad ( clashing queues of people, dishes in an illogical order, etc). Kettle on the floor in the chalet ( cord too short). Public toilet was smelly.

It is a great place with the waterhole providing great game viewing, but the attention to detail needs to be improved - it takes the edge off of what could have otherwise been rated as excellent.

Bathroom in the downstairs suite is a bit too small - a sliding door would improve matters.

Great location but room for improvement!

The Chalet was superbly located but has some strange design quirks. The kitchenette should have a sink and microwave plus a kettle with a cord that can reach the plug from the counter surface.

Both bedrooms should have a view of the waterhole and top floor should be soundproofed better.

Food was good with salads very good and dining area pleasant. Service -very average

Stay for the waterhole

The bush chalets are basic but spacious. There is a separate little kitchen type area with a sofa with tea/coffee making facilities. The only sockets are in this area.

Ladies, the only mirror is in the bathroom so hair drying has to take place without a mirror next to the sink in the kitchen!

The dinner buffet does not cater for vegetarians so this made the meal expensive for what we could eat but everyone else seemed to be enjoying it. There is a small shop but no cooking equipment in the kitchen; there is a BBQ outside the chalet.

The water hole is excellent though and we just spent the days and nights sitting by it. We saw 2 male elephants fighting it out at the floodlit waterhole and later we saw a rhino and her baby. The benches around the waterhole are not very comfortable for long periods though-take a cushion!

Okaukuejo Camp review

We had not read good reviews of Okaukuejo, and so were pleasantly surprised. The waterhole was close to our room, and well worth the several visits we made.

It was easy to visit waterholes in the Park, and we enjoyed the swimming pool and restaurant.

The staff were very helpful.

Okaukuejo Camp review

Really good experience - significantly exceeded our expectation.

Staff friendly and efficient. Waterhole lived up to billing (and human behaviour around it much better than we'd expected from some previous comments).

Dining experience remarkably good given the size of the place.

Okaukuejo Camp review

Nothing can beat the waterhole here. It is worth a stay in camp for that alone, especially at night.

Shame that they don't do more to keep the jackals out of the place.

Great waterhole here!

Busy but comfortable. Waterhole was amazing at night. Very practical place to stay to see best of Etosha.
