Okaukuejo Camp review

A great place to stay in Etosha, it wouldn't matter which room you stayed in as we were pretty much out all day viewing the wildlife.

Black Rhinos make it worthwhile

Having stayed before I was not concerned at the quality of the room. However, I was unhappy that there was building work being undertaken which we had not been informed of. This meant the dining room was out of action and it was noisy and dusty while eating breakfast. In addition the chef did not prepare fresh cooked food either at breakfast or dinner, which spoilt our enjoyment.

As before that said the animals did not disappoint.It is a lottery as to what turns up, and on the first evening there was nothing until 8.30 when black rhinos appeared, phew. No elephants that evening either. The next evening both elephants and rhinos turned up. That's the trouble with expectations/experience you feel next time that they must be beaten!

Fabulous water hole at Okaukuejo Camp

As you warned the Okaukuejo Camp was not up to the standards of the other camps you booked for us. The service was poor, and the reception was crowded and not very welcoming. The shop and garage closed at 4.00 pm for stock taking. The rooms were basic, fairly dark in decoration, but adequate. The restaurant service was poor but the food was good.

However the waterhole was excellent and meant that whatever the accommodation and service this is the place to stay. It was an opportunity to see elephant, giraffe, rhinos etc. acting very naturally for long periods of time. There was rarely a time when nothing was happening at the waterhole.

Big busy camp

This is the main camp in Etosha and as can be expected, large and busy. It's great feature is the waterhole which is lit after dark with a fascinating parade of animals coming down to drink all through the night. This makes Okaukeujo a must on a trip to Etosha

Okaukuejo Camp review

An amazing camp for wildlife watching with their waterhole providing a non-stop show of animals including even rare rhinos.
Decent accomodation in bush chalets.
But the whole place was sadly let down by quality of food and service.
Staff seemed totally uninterested in their guests.Table reservations were ignored,no coffee at breakfast(when asking the supervisor for reason why their was no coffee she replied that we were on a coffee-free morning that day).
This could be the best camp in Namibia if it was managed and run like all the other camps we visited in Namibia.

Its a basic camp. We stayed here to be in the park and close to a waterhole.

Previous rainfall meant there was no activity at the waterhole! The camp is fine is a little basic - the game drive was not brilliant due to a fairly unprofessional guide we thought.

Okaukuejo Camp review

There did not seem to be a systematic procedure to replace lightbulbs/repair fittings but they did respond promptly when defects were pointed out. The food on the second night was a bit of a disaster as it ran out!

The swimming pool was very nice.

Because of the time of year that we went, there was so much water in the park that there were almost no sightings of animals at the waterhole. However we did see plenty of animals and birds in the park including 3 good sightings of lions and good sightings of bustards, plovers, lapwings and thick knees

Great waterhole chalet

We had a great waterhole chalet which was very comfortable.

The first night the waterhole was visited by a large herd of zebra & then , after dark, a large herd of springbok. Sadly overnight it rained - the second night no animals came !

Our first night was Friday - the restaurant was absolute chaos - absolutely packed - long queues & running out of stuff. To be fair, they are re-vamping the inside restaurant at the moment so it may be better when that is finished - but it may just be better not to arrive on a Friday (Saturday was fairly quiet by comparison).

We drove westwards from the lodge & saw a great many animals - I have never seen so many zebra - mile after mile of them - brilliant !

Okaukuejo Camp review

Location, location, location. Rooms were OK, though a bit small. Food was buffet style, of varying quality. Some good, some not so good. Often overcooked. Service was marginal. But that's not what really matters. It is the middle of Etosha Park. It has a great waterhole right at the lodge, with excellent viewing opportunities, including lit-up at night. Many animal viewing opportunties while driving around the nearby area. That's what really counts.
