Amazing birds as Namutoni

The room in Namutoni was gorgeous - although the open-plan toilet a little strange!

The water hole here was the least attractive and seemingly least visited of the three rest camps (we called in at Halali on our way through) however the bird's display as the sun set was absolutely incredible...What must have been millions of tiny birds appearing from all over the sky, swooping in huge flocks, landing on trees, lining up on the rushes and suddenly setting off again was breath-taking.

The food here was massively better than at Okaukejo - both dinner and breakfast very good.

The shop was not especially well stocked (compared to the other rest camps)

When we came to leave Etosha we could not find the form we had filled in on arrival. Although we eventually found it after a stressful 45 minutes which involved unpacking all our luggage and driving back to Namutoni - it would have been good to have known that we would need to show this on departure. The woman on the gate was not going to let us out without paying again if we couldn't find it.

Namutoni Restcamp

At the moment the camp is being upgraded & refurbished. When it is finished it will be a credit to the country.

However on arrival we were asked for N$500 deposit without any prior knowledge & this came as quite a surprise. The receptionist was quite abrupt & could of explained the reasonning behind the deposit. We found out later that this was because previous guests were removing things, towel etc from the newly refurbished accommodation.

We understand that the upgrade needs to be undertaken consequently the area did resemble a building site.
