Bush Chalet at Halali

Again, standard rest camp. We stayed in a bush chalet which was in much better condition than the family room we previously stayed in at Halali. Very spacious and clean.

The food was again good (game meat for dinner was cooked perfectly). The staff were not as helpful as those at Okaukuejo but still everything was reasonable, particularly bearing in mind that this is government run and relatively low cost.

There were elephants at the waterhole and rhino as the sun went down. Waterhole seating area had trash cans overflowing but when we returned a few days later this had all been removed. We would stay here again as it's good value and better to be inside the park than taking the drive out and back in each day.

Ok for short stay

Halali seems to be suffering from lack of maintenance these days and feels slightly more run down than our last visit.

Maybe more staff enthusiam might help.

Rooms are OK but the evening meal was not good value or appetising we didn't bother the second night.

Underwhelming accomodation but great location

Mainly a rest stop and fine for that purpose. The rooms were very odd - with space that could have been used as a kitchenette but lacking equipment, and the bathroom was quite impractical for the space available.

We were fortunate to see a rhino at the water hole, but in some ways it was nicer elsewhere in the park seeing the animals from ground level, rather than the elevated viewing platform at the camp.

Good central location for Etosha

Much better than we expected. The bush chalets are very spacious and conveniently located for the main facilities, which were very good. The food was fine and we didn't mind the buffet style because it allowed us free choice. The buffet was restocked continuously, so there were no shortages.

The waterhole is a little remote from the chalets (unlike Okaukuejo!) and we saw little wildlife. Others reported a small herd of black rhino one morning, but we saw only birds, a jackel and a hanging bat.

There are, though, some great waterholes to visit. Chodop (nearer Namutoni) was absolutely full - 20+ giraffe, 6 elephants, a hyena and loads of zebra when we went.

Halali Camp review

Like Okaukuejo, Halali camp is run by the National Park, so our expectations were not high, but in fact it was pretty good in all respects.

Accommodation, food and service were not exceptional, but were all more than adequate.

Halali Camp review

This camp is in a good position to drive both east and west to visit water holes,but their own waterhole is quite a walk from the bush chalets,there is a small car park. we have been unlucky and not seen much wildlife there. the dining area is not very attractive but the buffet food is up to the usual Etosha standard .

We prefer Okaukuejo, and then outside the East gate.

Halali Camp review

Good camp, although the food is well below average, which is strange because Okaukuejo's is ok.

Good time at Halali

Nice spacious rooms, very private (except for the honey badgers). Friendly staff at the restaurant, reception and filling station. Good place to start gamedrives from.
