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.

Okaukuejo Camp review

This is a bit utilitarian but the floodlit waterhole is an absolute wonder. We made the mistake of going on a night safari trip - don't do it - it is expensive you see nothing - the driver just waves a red torch around the blackness. All this time you could be at the waterhole.

Also we wished we had just got up early in the morning and gone down there before breakfast as well

Okaukuejo was a lot better than expected

The location and proximity to the waterhole is fantastic.

The rooms were larger, cleaner and better than what we expected for a National Park lodge.

Okaukeujo

The bungalow was really nice with plenty of space, comfy beds, was clean and within easy reach of the waterhole, where we saw a big variety of animals..
Good value.

Wonderful camp!

This camp can't be beat for location within the Park. The grounds are pleasant, the rooms very comfortable, the waterhole great for viewing wildlife and a good location for going either east or west within the park. It is a large camp so interaction with staff was minimal, but people seemed friendly and helpful.

I thought the food was just average and it was expensive. We had a large group and our server was not very good at keeping track of our extras. As a result mistakes were made, not in our favor. Management might want to look at a more efficient method for larger groups.
