"Okakuejo -once again for us !!"
The waterhole is wonderful with a fabulous lot of animals visiting particularly in the evening.It is a big camp and I must say it is amazingly quiet for the number housed there. I guess a lot of people go to bed early to be out early on their game drives.We self drove which is always satisfying.
The accommodation was clean and when we had to change chalets they made our new chalet priority cleaning so that we could move early. I would not like to stay in the more upmarket waterfront chalets as they have too much foot traffic past them and I find the appearance of the camping area ,bleak.
It is a quite basic camp but I will definitely go back again and probably again. The staff at reception were great and I saw some appalling behaviour from some guests and the staff were calm and polite." See all these reviews: 15n in Namibia; 1n in South Africa

"Okaukuejo Camp Review"
The floodlit waterhole was a novelty and a treat. One evening we saw eight black rhino at the water's edge alongside a large herd of elephant (35+).
An excellent base for visiting central waterholes and the salt pan." See all these reviews: 26n in Namibia
"Okaukuejo Camp review"
The waterhole at Okaukuejo was so much nicer than the one at Halai. There are seats and a viewing platform spread over a large area and people don't have to climb past you for a view. It seemed so much more civilised! The lighting was good as well and we saw so many elephants and Rhino's, it was amazing. You could sit out here all night if you desired.
All in all another perfectly pleasant place to stay in a good location in the park." See all these reviews: 25n in Namibia
"Convenient location for self drive in Etosha"
"The waterhole camp at Okaukuejo"
We could only book two separate rooms for our two night stay and staff were most unhelpful about moving from one to the other. We asked that perhaps the new room could be made available as soon as possible but they were not in the least accommodating. We were made to be "homeless" from 10 am until 2 pm - unnecessarilly we thought.
Food was poor and waiters totally useless" See all these reviews: 14n in Namibia
"Okaukujejo premier water hole cabins"
From the terrace you can see directly into the water hole, and we stayed up till midnight both nights we were there watching a progression of elephants, zebra, impala, rhinos and one night 2 lions come down to drink, as well as lots of birds. The food was adequate, and apparently had improved a lot in last 6 years, according to our friends. The 2 bedrooms were spacious and upstairs ensuite large. Sitting area small but not much time to sit around! Kettle and fridge provided.
Really must stay inside the park for a few days if you visit etosha as so good going out for early drive and coming back for breakfast at the camp." See all these reviews: 13n in Namibia; 5n in Botswana
"Best camp in Etosha"
We have stayed at Okaukuejo twice before and they've really got their act together compared to our previous visits, especially the food, which is vastly improved. Overall our expectations were exceeded." See all these reviews: 19n in Namibia; 2n in Botswana
