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.

Halili was decent

We were not here long but nothing stood out.

We were at the waterhole watching more rhino and elephant when a loud commotion behind us resulted in everyone scrambling to see a honey badger which had knocked over a garbage can.

He runs that place so heads up for the honey badger.

Halali Camp review

A very good big camp. We had a chalet with disabled access which was a bit strange with no bathroom/toilet door and only one chair. We had been warned that this was the only accommodation available so it didn't come as complete surprise but it was odd. We checked the inventory on arrival and found a few things missing but when we went to report it to reception, we were just told that they were already aware.

We have been to Halali before and were looking forward to going back - we weren't disappointed, enjoyed the atmosphere and had good game sightings including white and black rhino and lions.

Buffet restaurant was good with friendly efficient service for drinks. Breakfast omelettes were lovely.
