Namutoni Camp review

The room was the worst by far off all we stayed on this trip.

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.

Namutoni Camp ok for one night

We did not see as much wildlife in this area as in the area around Okaukuejo, but our stay here was more enjoyable - ..and the camp and surrounding area were a lot less busy.

Unfortunately the food here was no better than at Okaukuejo.

Good views at watering hole

Food was not very good, reception and restaurant staff not attentive or helpful.

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.

Much better than Okaukuejo

A much more pleasant experience than Okaukuejo where we'd driven from.

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.

Namutoni Fort

Namutoni Camp has new chalets and the fort is only in use for a gift shop (last time we were here, we stayed in the fort!)

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.

Average camp site

Whereas it was great to be in Etosha with such close proximity to the game, we felt the camp itself was poorly run, looked as though it needed updating,the shop was inadequately stocked, the food in the restaurant average, the pool looked murky, & there was no lighting at the waterhole.

But we had a very nice room, perhaps not our favourite place on this trip.

Namutoni Camp review

The night drive here was rather casually handled bye the guide.

In general, if folk want to take paid drives morning ones seem to offer more.
