Halali Camp review

Halili camp is smaller than other camps in the park and seemed well organised, although game drives were booked up before we got there which was disappointing - it would be worth booking in advance.

The waterhole is a 15 minute walk from the rooms (hot!) but very atmospheric; we saw lions and rhino and a host of other animals. The camp is well placed for waterholes in the park.

Great swimming pool and very nice service in the restaurant.

Functional

We found Halali camp to be a bit of a disappointment to be honest. The staff were not particularly friendly. The room in which we stayed was very basic, with a bed and a couple of armchairs but no table. There was a fridge which was good.

The main restaurant area I found quite dismal really - very canteen style feel to the place. The food was ok (we only had breakfast here). The shop was very poorly stocked when we were there.

They opened the gates in the morning well after sunrise so you couldn't get a really early start which was frustrating.

On the plus side the waterhole was fantastic - the only bit of the camp that is well worth going for.

Halali Camp No better

Room was desperately in need of revamp and update. We did have a BBQ outside our room but there was no grill to use even if we had wanted. Beds were comfortable.

Food exactly as Dolomite and Okaukuejo camp.

Waterhole never had any animals visit whilst we were there.

Halali Camp review

Our basic double room at Halali was very comfortable and quiet. We had to wait until it was ready so we sat in the very unattractive pool area where there was little shade and not much seating.

However, the food at Halali was excellent with a very good chef on hand at breakfast and dinner. Staff were very friendly here too.

The Moringa waterhole viewing was fantastic, but moving around the rocky seating area was very hazardous and a head torch, stout shoes and a good sense of balance are required! We also felt that it should be designated a no smoking area.

After dinner we saw a total of 10 black rhino including 3 females with a calf each.

We were impressed with the facilities at the Etosha National Park camps. All of them have good showers and clean comfortable rooms. The staff respond to respect and kindness and were all friendly and welcoming.

Honeymoon suite (Mushara) wonderful

We were lucky to get the honeymoon suite, Mushara. It was wonderful. Huge, very private, with a beautiful view of sunrise from a viewing platform. It has a very well equipped kitchen although we struggled with locating the burner (above the little oven) and we could not get it hot enough to boil anything.

The barbecue area was huge and very private with views of the bush. The bedding was comfortable.

The waterhole is far to walk to and even if one drives there is still a rocky section to climb so one can’t just keep popping in as one can at Okaukuejo camp. However there are not as many people and vehicles as Okaukuejo.

Breakfast was quite a lot worse than Okaukuejo. We had visited Etosha twice before many years ago but, even with special Mushara we will not go to Etosha again, certainly in popular September, as it has become so busy and with the sand roads the dust from other cars, jeeps and buses is unpleasant.

Halali Camp review

This was a very pleasant surprise after Okaukuejo Camp.

The food and service were very good and the staff were very friendly. Perhaps because of its size, the atmosphere was completely different to that of Okaukuejo.

The waterhole was spectacular, and we saw several rhinos - two at once - and then later others. Magical!

Quiet waterhole but great location to explore

While e didn't see any wildlife at this waterhole, there are a lot of amazing waterholes to explore close by.

Halali Camp review

Somewhat of a disappointment - never an animal at the watering hole, service in the restaurant was average.

Registration was a challenge for the one person working.
