Enjoyable time at Halali

The room (bush chalet) was fine, if a bit far from the waterhole.

Halali basic and tired

Halali is another government run camp in Etosha and we found a little more basic than Okaukuejo. The accommodation was very tired, staff uninterested and food reminiscent of school dinners!

Its location at midpoint in Etosha and floodlit waterhole only positives.

We did see a rhino at the waterhole but on balance would not stay here again.

Halali Camp review

Halali is what it is, but given that we thoroughly enjoyed it because it met our expectations.

The water hole is excellent

Better than Okaukuejo

This scored mored highly than Okaukuejo partly because our chalet was bigger and better (it included a sitting area and kitchenette) and partly because of the much better waterhole. The camp as a whole was smaller and more intimate.

It seemed to attract more coach parties but that's maybe because there were so few people staying there and so the coaches were more obvious.

Once again we didn't do any of the activities, preferring to drive ourselves and watching the sun setting over the waterhole in the evenings.

The staff were better overall than Okaukuejo but the food was pretty similar with buffets for breakfast and dinner.

Perfect for exploring most of Etosha

Halali Camp is very similar to, but smaller than, Okaukuejo Camp and provides a far better service and overall experience. Unlike Okaukuejo Camp it has a waterhole that attracts not only the full range of game but is far enough away from the rooms and chalets to attract only those with a genuine interest in wildlife and willing to be appropriately quiet!

Halali

We stayed just one night at Halali on this trip in a standard room.

OK and much better than the standard rooms at Okaukeujo.

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.
