"Okaukuejo Camp review"

1 night Arrived 6 Oct 2013
"Perfect chalet overlooking the waterhole. Make sure you spend a few extra bucks getting a waterholde chalet. Worth every penny.

Close up look at Lions, Rhinos, Giraffes, Zebras and lots of other animals from balcony. Also, parking is easy, so you can just drive out early to see animals troughout Etosha" See all these reviews: 7n in Namibia

"Okaukuego Rest Camp review bush chalet"

2 nights Arrived 2 Oct 2013
"If I had been to Okaukuego Camp before Hoodia, Wolwedans or Noro Dawas I would have given Okaukuego higher marks. But because the customer service I received at these prior places was so superior I held Okaukuego up to these standards.

The check in process was efficient but the staff was not as friendly as the other places. They were not unfriendly, but just not as outgoing as the other places.

The room was very spacious and clean. I was glad we didn't pay extra to be in the waterhole chalets because our room was right across the street from the waterhole.

I liked having the option to do a nightime game drive. This was the only place that offered this experience and we had a great time seeing the animals active rather than sleeping. The game driver was very serious about our safety and very respectful of the animals (he did not get too close or shine the night light in their eyes).

The food at the restaurant was okay for buffet food. There was good variety. The chefs cooking the meat were very friendly and funny and encouraged us to try game (kudu, springbok)." See all these reviews: 19n in Namibia

"Okaukuejo Camp review"

1 night Arrived 27 Sep 2013
"Stayed in a waterhole chalet, although NWR's main booking system had bumped us down from the premium chalet which Expert Africa had booked us into.

Having said that, the chalet was fine, and its really all about the waterhole, which was excellent. overall we were pleasantly surprised as we had read so much bad feedback. But the chalet was clean, the food was OK, and people were quiet at the waterhole. We would recommend a night here." See all these reviews: 12n in Namibia

"Big and busy Okaukuejo"

1 night Arrived 26 Sep 2013
"Disabled persons review: All areas of this lodge was easily accessible.

The biggest camp was busy with traffic, campers and people walking to and from the waterhole past our room. The patio area was not at all private. The waterhole is close to the rooms so distracting noise but the animals seemed to take no notice. We saw some lions at night but as the whole waterhole is not well lit these were indistinct."

"Okaukuejo Camp review"

2 nights Arrived 25 Sep 2013
"The wildlife helps make up for the small room and the poor layout of the camp. Again you are hit with petty minded paperwork as at all the government locations.

But we saw a leopard and all can be forgiven." See all these reviews: 12n in Namibia; 4n in Botswana

"Okaukuejo Camp-Room Concern"

1 night Arrived 24 Sep 2013
"We had concerns about our room as it looked like it had been broken into . The screens had holes near the latches; the front door latch was broken, and he bottom panel into the bedroom had been kicked in. Air conditioning solved the screen problem and we managed to lock necessary doors. In retrospect, we should have asked for another room.

The flood - lit waterhole was a hit." See all these reviews: 9n in Namibia; 6n in Botswana; 3n in South Africa; 2n in Zimbabwe

"A magnificent waterhole at Okaukuejo"

2 nights Arrived 22 Sep 2013
"We enjoyed the location of our accommodation overlooking the waterhole - this was an excellent way of viewing the game and birdlife.

The management of the facilities at the camp lacked attention to detail - with a bit more supervision and training the overall experience could be enhanced. The trip from west to east through Etosha was outstanding - we saw so much especially at the waterholes." See all these reviews: 11n in Namibia

"Okaukuejo is a great camp"

2 nights Arrived 22 Sep 2013
"Bar service in the restaurant is poor - the logistics of the buffet meals is bad ( clashing queues of people, dishes in an illogical order, etc). Kettle on the floor in the chalet ( cord too short). Public toilet was smelly.

It is a great place with the waterhole providing great game viewing, but the attention to detail needs to be improved - it takes the edge off of what could have otherwise been rated as excellent.

Bathroom in the downstairs suite is a bit too small - a sliding door would improve matters." See all these reviews: 11n in Namibia

"Great location but room for improvement!"

2 nights Arrived 22 Sep 2013
"The Chalet was superbly located but has some strange design quirks. The kitchenette should have a sink and microwave plus a kettle with a cord that can reach the plug from the counter surface.

Both bedrooms should have a view of the waterhole and top floor should be soundproofed better.

Food was good with salads very good and dining area pleasant. Service -very average" See all these reviews: 11n in Namibia
