Halali Camp review

Particularly liked the observation area next to the watering hole and the large swimming pool.

Convenient overnight stop - Halali

After an memorable day of animal sitings in Etosha, we were pleased to have a place to stay in the middle of the park.

We had the two bedroom chalet. This accommodation was as expected. We had paid our deposit with notes of various denominations and received our receipt. As we were following EA guidelines we actually did a reckoning with the listed inventory and found lots 'missing'. We reported the missing items, much to the amusement of the desk person, who assured us that this deposit was ONLY a deposit for the return of the key. There was much confusion (eventually resolved) about the return of our money and so I would suggest only having one denomination of notes in your deposit,

Actually we found the food was quite good and well priced and we had the best piece of kudu on our whole trip. There was a fillet of kudu on the bbq plate and the chef cut off the required amount. We had considered buying food in the shop to bbq in the brai that was outside our room but as there were no implements to eat or cook with, or much of a choice in the shop so dinner out was the only option.

Showing age but okay for a night.

A useful stop as it breaks the trip across Etosha National Park. The rooms are a bit old, but liveable. The food in the restaurant was surprisingly good and amongst the best we had anywhere. There was some confusion and much discussion about the cash key deposit system here. They need to change how they handle this.

However, plenty of wildlife to be seen in the Park nearby.

Halali Camp review

The chalet was very good, light and spacious. The water in the camp is not drinkable and they charge for water when dining in the restaurant. Staff struggle to understand our English. I purchased cider in the shop and was charged double the price at Okaukeujo. Tip for future travellers, stock up on food and drink before you get there as the shop has minimal supplies.

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.
