Namutoni Camp review

We stayed in a pleasant, large, well fitted double room set at the back of the camp. The waterhole was a disappointment after Okaukuejo and we hardly spent any time there. The fort was a great place to eat and drink, and the food was very good if you like lots of game, but as we don't it was average. The location is good for exploring the eastern area of Etosha by car; it is easy to find lots of game by the waterholes and birds in the trees, particulalry raptors. We didn't try the game drives as they use the same roads as we could drive on, and the game vehicles were packed full.

Surprisingly excellent rooms

Being a state run camp we didn't expect such good rooms - they were on a par with most of the lodges we stayed at (particularly good shower).

Great location for Etosha but we didn't see anything at the waterhole.

Namutoni Restcamp review

Namutoni rests on its "designer" bathrooms and the atmosphere of the old fort. The rooms lacked mosquitoe nets and were smaller than at Okaukuejo. The food was poor, service indifferent and the waterhole simply not in the same league as the one at Okaukuejo.

We kept wishing we were back at Okaukuejo!

Namutoni Restcamp review

Much improved accommodation since our last visit in 2002. The bush chalet concept was excellent. The old style barrack type rooms are still there but look as though they have been refurbished as well.

No problems with the all inclusive concept of meals , although not as good as some of the private lodges with d'hote menu was quite acceptable . The Camp was quite empty so the service was fine.

Due to heavy rains the park was flooded in certain areas and some roads had been shut by the park authorities. This did stop not some good sightings LIon Hyena, Eland especially around the Chudop waterhole area. The Fischers pan drive was great for Zebra, Giraffe , Wildebeest, Warthog, Gemsbok. No elephants as they had all gone north.

Namutoni Restcamp review

Water hole not as good as Okakujo. Courtyard of old fort an excellent setting for restaurant.

The new bungalow we were allocated was excellent.

The resort manager introduced himself and it is clear that the Namibian government is making a real effort to maintain high standards at the rest camps.

Great stay at the "Fort"

Reception staff better than other Etosha camps but accommodation was almost luxury and quite a pleasant surprise.

Food was from a la carte menu and with waitress service was of far better standard that other Etosha camps. Waterhole fine and gives very close experience to animals. Some very good waterholes nearby too and if you are carefull you should see pelicans and flamingo on the pan.
