Over Okaukuejo Camp

Het omheinde Okaukuejo Camp ligt in het zuidwestelijke deel van het Etosha National Park en is het grootste rest camp in het park met een ruime receptie, winkel, restaurant, bar en een zwembad. De waterdrinkplaats van Okaukuejo staat goed bekend: regelmatig komen hier zwarte neushoorns drinken, evenals olifanten en vele andere diersoorten. Het is een plezierig tijdverdrijf om vooral 's avonds de verlichte waterdrinkplaats met steeds veranderend toneel te aanschouwen. Vanuit het kamp maakt u over het algemeen uw eigen game drive, maar drie maal per dag kunt u ook een game drive reserveren. Daarnaast wordt ook regelmatig een natuurwandeling georganiseerd. Er zijn verschillende typen chalets, waarbij de ‘waterhole chalets’ de populairste zijn. De chalets zijn met smaak ingericht en comfortabel.

Het Etosha National Game Park is het grootste beschermde natuurgebied van Namibië. Het gebied beslaat een oppervlakte van 22.912 km2. De naam Etosha betekent "Grote Witte Vlakte van Droog Water". Deze naam slaat op de enorme vlakte (4731 km2) die alleen na hevige regenval tijdelijk onder water staat.
In dat geval - en dat doet zich voor ergens gedurende de periode van december tot februari - is het doorgaans (kurk) droge Etosha een weelderige groene vlakte. De bronnen in het park voorzien het wild het hele jaar door van water.
Veel van de Afrikaanse diersoorten kunt u in Etosha aantreffen. Er zijn vier rest camps in Etosha: Okaukeujo in het zuidwesten, Halali in het centrum, Namutoni en Onkoshi in het oosten.

"Comfortable beds, great watering hole experience, not great service at dinner"

   21-05-2017
We stayed here for two nights. The rooms are basic but comfortable and clean. We saw many animals at the watering hole both in the morning and at night. The dinner and breakfast are buffet style. Breakfast was great. The staff making omelets were friendly and made a great omelet. The buffet at dinner was OK. There was always something grilled, which was good. For both meals, if the dish was empty, it took quite some time to get replacements. The staff at dinner, except for the man on the grill, seemed to be unhappy to be there. Trying to pay your check was difficult and time consuming.

"Night time viewing of waterhole - not to be missed!"

   21-05-2017
We stayed here for 1 night whilst visiting Etosha and wished we'd booked to stay for longer. The "waterhole" standard room was nice, although a bit of a squeeze for 2 adults plus luggage, and the meals were fine for vegetarians (not great but actually better than we expected). The camp felt very safe and sociable. Plenty of space to wander around, so it didn't feel strange being locked in overnight. The real highlight was being able to sit close to the waterhole after sunset. We saw zebras, springbok, elephants and rhino (including a baby rhino) all with two hours. The time went really quickly as we were glued to what we were watching. It was also very peaceful, despite the many people there.

"Known for having the best waterhole at a resort."

   17-05-2017
Chalet 91 was comfortable but once again there were management problems. There was an initial shortage of sheets the first day, a shortage of towels the second day (they came later) and the airconditioning unit leaked inside. One of the globes had to be replaced. Once again, the location of the camp for game viewing is unbeatable as the camp offers a grandstand and benches which overlook a waterhole. Here you will see a constant stream of animals, both big and small. Remember to have Namibian $500 or R500 in cash for the key deposit at all Namibia Wildlife Resorts in Etosha.

"Short break in Etosha"

   13-05-2017
The Camp is large and spread out so didn't feel crowded. The accommodation needs updating and there was no sink plug in the hut, or in the ablution block (in a country where water is scarce). Our room was located next to the waterhole and was clean with tea and coffee facilities.The camp shops are not well stocked and it would be difficult to self cater. The restaurant served a buffet breakfast and dinner of reasonable quality but invariably food ran out before the end of the service with no additional food being provided - get there early was essential. Because the area had had rain there were few animals near the camp and were well dispersed in the bush but there was plenty of birds around. The reception staff were efficient and helpful and the camp itself was clean.

"Easy access to surrounding waterholes."

   05-05-2017
Okaukuejo is run by the NWR (Namibia Wildlife Resorts, a government entity). Nevertheless it is well maintained and clean. It has a gas station (petrol and diesel) but it is wise to top off before entering Etosha. (Diesel was low when we visited.) The rondavel ("chalet") was clean and neat. As was the bathroom. As other reviewers have noted, Okaukuejo has a substantial sized waterhole with convenient seating on benches overlooking it. There is a barrier separating the viewing area from the waterhole. At night the waterhole is bathed by floodlights. For photographers, particularly bird lovers, the viewing area has a solid floor and easily supports a tripod. The waterhole is kept full by a hefty pump (made in the USA). However, during the rainy season (Jan - April) the larger animals gravitate to other nearby natural pans that have water (and, equally importantly, salt licks). So don't be disappointed if the wildlife is sparse. The birds will make up for it. The food we found to be wholesome and quite edible. For California residents who frequent US national parks and Mexico it was excellent. If you expect European haute cuisine it may not be up to your standards. Frankly, give me African range fed produce without hormones and antibiotics any time. Not to mention African size portions and freshness (normally). No, there is no "self-catering" as in Kruger, Kgalagadi, and many S.African parks. And no ubiquitous "braai" outside every rondavel. For food, the park restaurant is it. After so much driving around, who wants to cook anyway? There is a small shop for snacks. And, of course, "souvenirs." Plus the "made in china" kitsch, There is a little museum worth visiting. And a tower to climb if you have the energy. The camp has many trees making it a cool and shady retreat. Also a fair size swimming pool. Dining is al fresco, which is where you want to be in the Namibia heat. A caveat: Okaukuejo is close to the Andersen gate. Outside of which is a town of "safari lodges." These host numerous "safari tours." (Andersen is the closest Etosha entry to Windhoek where most tourists from abroad and even neighboring countries e.g., South Africa, fly to.) Don't be surprised if safari vehicle upon vehicle shows up at the quiet waterhole you are parked at. The trick to avoid this is to stay at Okaukuejo (which is in the park itself). Then get up just before dawn. Throw on some clothes. No shower, no breakfast, no coffee. High tail it out as soon as the camp gate opens (around 6 AM, as the sun rises). Then visit the nearby waterholes Come back around 8:30 AM and breakfast and shower. Most animals go for their morning drink from sunrise to 8 AM. After that it becomes too hot and they siesta under their favorite tree. Which is what I recommend you follow suit in your rondavel. Then come alive when they do -- later in the afternoon until sunset. For photographers, the dawn and dusk light will give your pictures for that hue pros covet. (Tours and visitors from outside the park have to check in and out at the gate and there is about a 50 km drive from the gate to the waterhole circuit.) Would we recommend staying at Okaukuejo? If you came to view game -- absolutely. If you came for anything else, why did you come to dusty Etosha?
