"Clean and comfortable"
"Namutoni Camp review"
The food was the worst too, and unreasonably expensive. The staff was uninterested in the guests.
The high point was being greeted by a troop of banded mongoose." See all these reviews: 16n in Namibia
"Gateway to Etosha "
"Good views at watering hole"
We were told to make sure that we took inventory of room contents so we would get our deposit back, yet they would not provide us with an inventory checklist. Very distasteful, fortunately it was not an issue at checkout." See all these reviews: 9n in Namibia
"Namutoni Camp ok for one night "
Unfortunately the food here was no better than at Okaukuejo." See all these reviews: 17n in Namibia; 2n in Zimbabwe
"Much better than Okaukuejo"
The room was light, airy and modern and the camp itself had a much more relaxed, calm and 'open' feel to it with some well-tended gardens/green spaces. The staff were helpful and had the time to assist us when we needed it. We had a problem with our bathroom and this was resolved in a prompt, efficient and friendly manner.
By driving to the nearby waterholes we saw an abundance of big game - far richer than we could have hoped for - including five separate sightings of lion (one male with a kill, and two females with a kill), female cheetah and cubs with a kill, and a group of about 50 elephants at one waterhole."

Our room was large and well-furnished, but, as with all the Etosha camps, there seems to be little maintenance (dripping taps, running toilets). The bathroom was very odd; completely open to the bedroom with a double shower and a bath! The complete lack of privacy could put off some people.
The numbers staying at Namutoni aren't that large, but it seems to attract plenty of coach parties and lodge safari trips, especially for lunch.
It's a good base from which to visit plenty of waterholes, but the one at Namutoni itself is virtually surrounded by tall reeds and, despite a new viewing area, you'd be lucky to see much here." See all these reviews: 16n in Namibia; 4n in Botswana
"Average camp site"
But we had a very nice room, perhaps not our favourite place on this trip." See all these reviews: 27n in Namibia; 1n in Botswana

In general, if folk want to take paid drives morning ones seem to offer more." See all these reviews: 7n in Namibia
