Spent 4 nights. Not sure what the negative criticism is about but we enjoyed our time here. Most of the staff and manager went out of their way to assist. Some things are expensive like buffet dinner @ $285, yet a very tasty beef burger & chips $85! The shop is expensive, so bring it with. Overall, still impressed after a 20 year absence.

Ablutions are functioning but in need of maintenance. Huge swimming pool but very noisy pump. Lots of mozzies at the waterhole so wear repellent. Wonderful and quiet, a lot less people than other Etosha campsites.

Just to say the pool opened today :-)

that's all

Massive campground with plenty campsites. Most has electricity and water. Some with shade. Many ablution blocks and laundry facilities that were decent. The camp was quite and we found a nice secluded spot. Pool was closed:-( and shop VERY expensive (like all shops in Etosha). The waterhole is the highlight! Situated at the foot of the little “koppies” and overlooking the waterhole that is floodlit at night. Stunning! We paid the SADC special rate of ND400 (max 4 people) for the site.

Came in on a Saturday late without pre-booking. This was not a problem at all. Not even 10% of the campsites were taken. Great waterhole that is accessible 24/7. I could see rhinos and cheetahs there at night. 1p 1car w/ rooftop tent costed 356$.

Camping was what we expected from a NRW campsite. 710 dollar for 2 persons.
Camping was half full wich was ok. Enough distance to others, can't imagine how it is when it's fully booked. Enough ablutions, old but clean.
First camping we visited with many big groups, no music so it was ok.

Camp is fine.
Sites have power point. Shower and toilet are fine but run down. Not enough shade when it's hot.
The swimming pool is great.
The main reason to sleep here is the waterhole which is for us out of the 3 campsite is the best.
Well lit, nice view, comfortable, and plenty of action!
Price as of 1/11/2021 is 362pp/pn.

After reading the reviews on iOverlander we decided to head for Halali Campsite. Big mistake. Despite the "rules" saying it is an "offence" to disturb guests and animals, campers were allowed to play loud music at night. After complaining about it to one of the officials we were advised to sleep in the parking lot near the restaurant. We moved our vehicle to some dark spot where the noise was less. There was an ablussion building but horribly "out of order". We consider the N$400 we paid for the night as a lesson learned - not to book with the National Parks Board again. PS: After our move a security guard came to assure us that the music was stopped. We are glad for the rest of the campers, but for us it was too little too late.

Special NAD 100 per person.
But our ablutions were closed :-(
Very nice waterhole

Ok for being a NWR Camp. Camping is first come first serve, so be sure to arrive early to get the best site.

A very nice campsite within Etousha NP. Plenty of ablution blocks scattered around so you can pick whichever you want to go too. Since we visited in the rainy season we paid $333 for 2 people and car.

Nicer than Okaukuejo, where we spent our first night in Etosha. Sites are larger and more spaced out, with some natural shade. Ablutions were clean, if in need of a little repair and TLC. Tap, braai and electricity. Camp shop has all the basics, and you can buy wifi vouchers at the restaurant. Enjoy the waterhole at night!

Report Check-In

Good campsite. Above all, is the only camping located in its area, so not really other options. Clean toilets and good shower. Buy everything you need before driving there. Take meat and enjoy the braai.

Plätze eng aufeinander, wenig liebevoll eingerichteter Campingplatz in reizloser Landschaft. Hat uns von allen bisher besuchten Campsites am wenigsten gefallen.

Report Check-In

Overcrowded and very dusty and noisy campsite. Several overland trucks with large groups. Tents very close together. Showers operating but very slow water flow. Smelling drains next to our campsite. Clearly we are not impressed, especially for 700 N$ for two people camping.
Next time we will camp outside the park and enter for the day.

Good campsite in central Etosha. Very nice waterhole where we saw Rhinos and plenty of other game every evening. Nice, big pool and good (albeit a bit tired) ablutions. Many camping spots that are fairly close together, but all have a braai spot, bins and water taps. Well stocked shop with braai packs, drinks etc.

Report Check-In

clean, hot water works, wifi with a good water hole
friendly service. A good place to stay.

A very basic camp with minimal shade and no personality as you would expect from NWR. Price N300pppn which we found to be expensive but fair considering it to be in Etosha. The underwhelming camp site was easily worth the freedom we had and the wildlife we enjoyed at the water hole. Literally a five minute walk from our camp with cooler box full of beers and blankets for the evening. There are nicer campsites but the watering hole makes it a unique and unmissable experience.

Report Check-In

The campsite is nothing special, although each spot has power, light, hard standing, braii etc. The best part of this camp and why you should stay here is the waterhole! The best in ethosha. We saw it all here!

Report Check-In

As described. Not cheap for a campsite, but the waterhole makes it worth it. Some of the best wildlife experience we've had. Hot and powerful showers. Nice pool. Expensive restaurant, but the store has somewhat reasonably priced food, wood, etc. The lady that checks you in is rude, but so are the ladies at the Okaukuejo campsite. You can buy WiFi (expensive) or airtime.

Report Check-In

Very nice campsite, not that crowded that the main one. Pits are not exactly divided but there are some tables and seats, braai, recycling of the rubbish. Ablution ok, great swimming pool with green grass next to it. Waterhole- stunning! You sit there like in amphitheater and watch animals show: we saw bunch of elephants, two rhinos, springboks, kudu, jackals, hyaena and some birds. Great place in the middle of the national park. A little bit expensive if you compare it to other NWR campsites (Ai-Ais, Hobas, Sesriem) - 300 N$ per person per night.

dusty campsite without privacy. small pitch and unfriendly staff at the reception. quit expensive either... (790nad for 2 adults and 2 children) good location in a middle of etosha national parc.

So much nicer then the main camp, campsite is much nicer, waterhole is amazing to sit and watch what comes next to drink. Rather would stay here for a night or 2 then the other camp.

Beware of trying the trick of arriving at 5pm or later as suggested in the post of 2/8/17. We tried it, arriving at 5:15 and were turned away (although they offered the honeymoon suite which was the "only accommodation left). Our friends arrived at 5:30 and were turned away, but they refused to leave and were offered the honeymoon suite or a cheaper chalet - eventually they were allowed to camp. Another guy was turned away a week ago too...
We drove to Okaukoujo and arrived as they locked the gates - with us inside. They had space in spite of having told us they were full in the morning.

Huge, typical NWR-campground which was surprisingly empty when we were there. Lovely waterhole...we saw an elephant there at sunset. Fairly clean absolutions. Nice pool. Staff is friendly

Prices raised: now 310 per adult, no extra charge for the site.

Dusty and busy Campsite. They said they are booked out one Week in Advance. However, if you arrive after 5 p.m. they can't turn you away and will place you in the Overflow Area. There was a Party going on some hundred Meters away. Maybe that's why we saw no Animals at all at the Waterhole! Not recommended. The Olifantsrus Camp inside the Park is also expensive but way better.

Report Check-In

Very big and busy campsite. I paid N$ 400 for 1 person, 1 night. Ablutions clean. Cold showers! Pitches are laid out in a very confusing way and could use some maintenance but are generally okay.
Waterhole was excellent! I saw lots of black rhinos and dozens of elephants. Camp is surprisingly quiet at night and well lit.
Wifi was down. Haven't tried the restaurant or pool.

Report Check-In

The pool is the best thing. Food in the evening is good, if you take a la carte (144$N for kudu)

Report Check-In

Very commercial and quite expensive. Buffet dinner is 230pp... Breakfast is about 150pp. The waterhole is great at night, however if you're on a budget I'd be staying at Onguma on the east side of the park.

Report Check-In

Very dusty campsite, a little sandwiched in. But there is a really nice floodlit waterhole. Pitches offer braai area, electric, seating area, and water. N$246 pppn for camping, N$10 vehicle fee per day. N$60 for SADC and N$90 for foreigners park fee per day. Park fees only purchased here or at Okaukuejo campsite.

Very dusty camp - but okay. The waterhole was very nice. Elephants and rhinos....
