Etosha Safari Camp review

This is a very basic camp on the edge of a large facility that includes some more impressive lodgings, but this probably reflected in the comparative prices.

The room came with 3 single beds which was incredibly crowded. The AC was spotty at best, but the bathroom was spacious and creatively decorated.

The local band playing at the dining facility was delightful, but the dining, pool and bar area gets extremely crowded which puts a noticeable strain on the service.

Good for Etosha Park

Etosha Safari Camp is located just outside Andersson gate so very convenient for getting into the park.

The chalet was clean and comfortable and dinner is buffet style. The food was OK, but one dish looked very much like the rest and the staff didn't seem to know what was what. We had great service one night, but the next night there seemed to be nobody there, just one chap who didn't really want to help the guests.

The evening entertainment is a couple of guys playing guitar. The pool here is quite large and very clean - we liked it!

Great location

This was a great location for visiting Etosha, but unfortunately after Doro Nawas, the first thing that struck us was that the Staff really didn't seem very happy.

The accommodation was beautifully clean but spartan compared to the luxury we had been used to at other lodges, the main buildings were interesting and funky, it was really nice to have live music in the evenings whilst we ate.

The food was O.K., but after Doro Nawas and Sossusvlei it couldn't help but disappoint with some food cold as it had not been kept warm on the buffet.

The pool was brilliant, clean and great fun for the kids.

Whilst we were a little disappointed with Etosha Safari Camp we felt it was a much nicer place to stay than the camps we saw inside the Etosha Park itself - they didn't look at all inviting.

Relaxed and social atmosphere

We really enjoyed Etosha Safari Camp. The highlight was the courtyard area, where meals and drinks are served - it's a beautiful space and fantastic gathering area. It was really nice having live music there throughout the evening. The food was also very nice and plentiful, and served in a relaxed buffet style.

Although it is only a few kilometres from the entry to the park, the main water holes are then another 30-40 minute drive onward from the gate, so it would be a little far for multiple days, but still worth it as a very pleasant place to stay.

This boy can cook

Our first choice at this location was Taleni and we were a little disappointed when we arrived here, The rooms are a little tired and we had a bit of a flood in the bathroom but it was dealt with swiftly

After our first night here our opinion of the place had to change The food was fantastic the atmosphere and staff made sure everyone had a good time . A very different lodge to most places near Etosha but one that's worth trying if its just to meet the chef

Etosha Safari Camp review

Another little jewel. Awash with character and attention to detail.

The main lodge had so much of interest, done up as a shabeen it had so much to see. The staff were very happy and attentive. The evening meal had a wonderful atmosphere, and the live singers gave it a very unique experience.

Again another place not to be missed.

The green grass of home

Note: These guests camped at Etosha Safari Camp. Here's what they said about it:

The only NZ style camp we stayed at. Nice facilities at the bar / restaurant. Campsite almost a bit crowded but lovely to have green grass underfoot rather than dust getting everywhere.

However, our Etosha experience suggests that you should stay in the Park rest camp so that you can see the wildlife at the waterholes, and that would be my strong recommendation rather than staying outside.
