Waterberg Camp review

At Waterberg the staff were friendly and the food was acceptable. The chalets were comfortable, if rather sparse and dimly-lit.

We had an interesting evening drive up to the plateau with an NWR driver/guide. On the whole, though, Waterberg was my least favourite place. It's quite cold at this time of year and the trees make the restcamp gloomy - the bird life was disappointing, too.

Waterberg Camp review

We thought Bradt perhaps too lukewarm about this camp - particularly in making no mention of it's history, viz the German Cemetery and the origins of the buildings now used as restaurant and bar.

We found the staff friendly and helpful, the views superb and the rooms comfortable. The baboons, admittedly, were a nuisance.

We had been warned that the after noon drive on the plateau was likely to be far more concerned with flora than fauna.
In the event we saw white rhino, sable antelope and buffalo as well as the more normal suspects! We were certainly lucky, but Waterberg should not be too readily talked down.

great camp!

Guide books put down the lodge safaris up to the plateau! Say the guides suck! We almost didn't go on one because of this. GLAD WE DID GO!!! Our guide was GREAT!!! Well informed, did not rush us at water holes and we saw LOTS of stuff! And nice guy to boot!

Food was not bad, just ok.

Books tell about local guide who does native village tours. This is no more, he has left the area.

Waterberg Plateau Park Resort (Bernabe de la Bat) review

Like Halali, the staff are a problem here. Nick and I have travelled extensively through Africa in the past and after our stay here we remembered why we had found it so frustrating at times in the past. We had a firm but polite "row" with the restaurant manager who argued that we had to pay for breakfast despite our voucher stating clearly that it had already been paid. It leaves a sour taste.

Paying park fees took nearly an hour as the computer was down, things had to be filled our in triplicate and it would have been impossible for the staff to have worked any slower or been generally less friendly and helpful. Again, a shame as they have clearly put a huge amount of effort into the pool and restaurant area which are beautiful. The rooms are not as nice as they look in the leaflet - not really that welcoming and not nearly as nice as Halili.
