Okaukuejo Camp review

We were lucky to stay in the Premier Waterhole Chalet for one night - and it was probably the highlight of our holiday. We were in Chalet 34 which was probably the best one as it was very close to the waterhole with unobstructed views. The chalet was very clean and a lot more luxirious than we expected! We only used one of the two bedrooms but it would be very good value for four people. It was great watching the animals come to the waterhole whilst relaxing on our balcony and also seeing them in the middle of the night whilst lying in bed! There were loads of animals including elephants, rhinos, giraffes and zebra.

The camp itself is basic, we did not have dinner there but breakfast was OK. Would definitely return for longer - it is a great base to explore the surrounding Etosha National Park. You do need to book the activities before you arrive as we could not get on the night safari as it was fully booked.

Okaukuejo camp was comfortable

Pools and restaurant very good, waterhole spectacular views of game but very busy with visitors.

Okondeka and Newbrownii are fantastic places to view game

Okaukuejo Camp review

The watering hole here was spectacular, and as we had heard, the elephants arrived at 12pm on the dot.

The camp itself was big, impersonal, food very poor, and service bad, and there seems to be a problem with sewage (bad smell all around the camp ) - rooms were clean though.

However, it was worth staying here for the waterhole.

Extraordinarily to see so many elephants at once, and later that night we saw giraffes, which was incredible - very memorable!

Okaukuejo Camp review

We had a premier chalet close to the waterhole here. Though the view of the waterhole was a bit limited, we enjoyed the terrace and we made the most of our proximity to the waterhole in spending time there in the evening.

The wildlife we saw there was fantastic; after one rather quiet half hour, twenty or so elephants came ambling in. At all times there was something to see. The chalet itself was very comfortable, although it needed a bit more care (the downstairs living room had no light when we were there, though one was rigged up by the maintenance man).

The food was buffet-style, for large numbers of people, but perfectly adequate. We did not take any of the tours available but as we drove around in the national park, we found some amazing viewpoints, where lines of game were queuing for their access to water. We were very glad to have gone there and experienced the park, in spite of the numbers of people and pressure on services.

Great place to start our Etosha experience!

What an awesome place to begin the Etosha experience!

On our first day we saw 5 rhinos and many elephants at the waterhole.

Amazing!

Okaukuejo Camp

Bored staff sometimes even surly. Accommodation worn but fine.

The experience driving out the east gate of Etosha was better than expected with decent number of mammals at the waterholes.

Got to see three black rhinos together at the camp watering hole.
