Functional ... but a bit more than that

Halali makes a good effort, despite the hamstringing of bureaucracy. It feels quite welcoming and has a reasonably relaxing atmosphere to it. Our room was in good order and comfortable. Everything worked. ...It's not a thing of beauty but it wasn't bad.

The staff in the restaurant are attentive and the food is at the better end of 'typically buffet'. Meat was cooked freshly, and the same went for eggs in the morning. Service was pretty snappy. Breakfast is all but over by nine, a bit of a pain if you have been out for an early drive. That's just the time you're getting back!

We didn't get to the waterhole to comment on that. We did do a morning game drive which was a bit of a lion hunt, but was reasonable at looking at other things as well. The guide was quite amenable.

Good base for game viewing in East Etosha

Very similar to the Okaukuejo camp in most respects.

However, the water hole was less accessible with a walk uphill on an uneven stone path, which some people found quite difficult in the dark. Also very little seating provision which meant standing for long periods of time.

Halali Camp review

This again is our third visit to Halali Camp. This camp appears to be better managed than Okaukuejo, dining is a far more pleasant experience with better service and quality of food on offer.

The buffet is far more organised and hot food was cooked to order by the jovial chef who was eager to please from cooking your steak to making your omelette in the morning.

Chalets slightly better than Okaukuejo Camp, again fridge and air conditioning.

Views of the Waterhole are from elevated platforms with plenty of shade. During the day, game viewing not prolific, however as soon as sun sets there was a steady stream of elephant, black rhino and hyena on one evening.

Good central location for exploring the middle of the national park.

Halali camp

Halali camp was better than expected.

The accommodation was good although we didn’t have facilities to cook for ourselves. Food was self service and the same both nights but it was ok.

Location in Etosha was good and it was lovely to have a water hole

Worth it for the waterhole

We didn't have high expectations for this camp, but it worked very well for us & is a good base for the eastern part of Etosha. It's a huge & busy camp & consequently rather impersonal.

The rooms we had were slightly scruffy decor wise, but are functional, have good beds and are clean. The inventory check was bizarre, but I assume it's to deter groups of guests just moving stuff from one room to another & not returning it.

Food was very good in the restaurant (gluten free easily sorted) & not expensive.

The water hole is charming as it's not too big - we were lucky enough to witness a few 'visits' whilst we were there including a rhino.
