"Okaukuejo Camp review"

3 nights Arrived 9 Oct 2010
"The lodge near the waterhole was excellent. We saw more game than I have ever seen in nearly 60 years of game viewing - just amazing. 9 rhino at the waterhole - all at once; 60+ elephant; pride of 12 lions; 5 species of eagle in one day. What more could you ask for? Chris' recommendations on the waterholes to visit were spot on.

The restaurant is well described in your book as being a bit like 'school dinners'. we had 2 acceptable meals and one poor one - at least we were prepared, and it was the only poor one in 14 days, so not bad!" See all these reviews: 14n in Namibia

"Really enjoyed this camp"

3 nights Arrived 5 Oct 2010
"We stayed at Okaukuejo in 2007 and at the time they were refurbishing. This is now more or less complete and we were very impressed with the overall standard. The chalet we had (#89) was very good and perfectly located for the water hole, restaurant and shops etc. The staff were very helpful and friendly.

The photography was first class and we obtained all the images and more for the book we are writing on African wildlife." See all these reviews: 6n in Namibia

"Interesting safari experience"

2 nights Arrived 29 Sep 2010
"Location excellent but paid considerably more for waterhole villa. The best waterhole we visited in Etosha.

Communal dining facility was not very good and nor was the food served in it. This really was incidental to the overall experience." See all these reviews: 16n in Namibia; 6n in Botswana; 3n in Zambia; 3n in South Africa

1 night Arrived 24 Sep 2010
"The camp is in an excellent location with a wonderful waterhole. We saw so many animals. The accomodation is very good with air conditioning which was helpful as it was very warm.

We thought the food was great. The staff were very friendly if a little disorganised at times but this was not a problem." See all these reviews: 12n in Namibia

"Okaukuejo Camp review"

3 nights Arrived 20 Sep 2010
"Very good ,comfortable ,clean chalet. A large kitchen with cutlery and pans but nothing to warm the pans! No cooking facilities whatsoever. And nowhere to put the suitcases- except the floor.

The waterhole is a good one but does get busy-with people that is. Don't think you've missed anything if all the smart seats are occupied. The stone seats have been warmed by the sun and keep you warm all evening.

No ATM yet either in Etosha." See all these reviews: 15n in Namibia; 6n in South Africa

"Okaukuejo Camp review"

2 nights Arrived 13 Sep 2010
"From what I had read before going to Namibia I had serious concerns about the place. I need not have done. The rooms, while being definitely on the small side, were very clean and well equipped, although there was a slightly unpleasant small in one of our bathrooms. During our 2 day stay we did have a problem with the toilet which stopped working. However it took only 30 minutes after reporting for a maintance man to appear and fix it. The swimming pool was large and clean and a most welcomed treat.

The highlight of this place is undoubtedly the waterhole - and not just when floodlit at night. There is a constant stream of animals to and from the hole. How many places in the world can you see 7 wild rhinos at the same time?

The food is served buffet style for both breakfast and evening meal. While of adequate quality they need to pay more attention to the logistics and ensuring that food is kept topped up. Good fresh meat was cooked in front of you. The soups were good too, but a problem with holding a soup bowl, a ladle and the soup toureen lid at the same time. (Just providing somewhere to put the lid down would make an enormous difference!).

The site shop is worthy of comment (really just to add to what is said the guides). Physically it is quite large, but the shelves are largely empty, and what they do have is expensive. I cannot understand why they do not more pro-actively exploit their location and provide a good range of products (for example vs a very poor selection of cold drinks at the moment) at reasonable prices. The next nearest competitor is over 100km away." See all these reviews: 15n in Namibia; 2n in Zambia

"Okaukuejo Camp review"

3 nights Arrived 13 Sep 2010
"Accommodation much better than it used to be, although waterside chalet quite small.

Would benefit from facilities for preparing one's own food. You're pretty well obliged to take breakfast (which is surprisingly good and included in the price) and dinner in the dining room.

It is nice that, at least when we were there, breakfast was half an hour before the gates opened. This meant that you could get into the park before the crowds.

The range of stock in the shop is abysmal. Good for water and beer, but that's about it - no coffee!

Waterhole excellent for evening viewing of elephant and rhino in particular." See all these reviews: 18n in Namibia

"Okaukuejo Camp review"

4 nights Arrived 11 Sep 2010
"Pleasant room close to the water but a little on the small side. I would have appreciated a little more space as we spent 4 nights here.

Best waterhole for game viewing both day and night although photographically there are problems.

Food again rather ordinary but staff pleasant and more efficient than in the past.

Again the plus is you are in the park." See all these reviews: 14n in Namibia
