"Namutoni Camp review"
This quieter camp was a very pleasant place to stay in the east of Etosha.
The best NWR camp we have seen." See all these reviews: 10n in Namibia; 2n in Zimbabwe
"Namutoni Camp review"
Limited choice, poor quality and often served cold - so be prepared !
Out of all the government camps Namutoni faired just a little better than the others but generally the standard of the food offering was uninspiring to say the least." See all these reviews: 21n in Namibia
"Namutoni Camp review"
The dinners were good although the menu very limited - the same two choices of main course each day.
Breakfast not as good but again very low visitor numbers and still under Covid restrictions. The pool area was good but the pool itself not particularly clean." See all these reviews: 22n in Namibia
"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 "
"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
"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
"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."
