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.

"A good base for exploring Etosha"

Okaukuejo Rest Camp is also the administrative centre of Etosha and is government run. It’s a fairly large camp and is a perfect base for exploring Etosha. We had a chalet quite close to the waterhole so it was about a 10-minute walk to the administrative centre and the restaurant. The chalet was reasonably basic, the bed was comfortable, had a good mosquito net, had a spacious bathroom and a fridge and we didn’t need anything else. The waterhole is fabulous and you can sit on a bench (under a tree if it’s free) and watch the animals come and go at close quarters. During the period after dusk when it’s floodlit, expect a visit by rhinos which was truly amazing. The restaurant was quite busy each evening, so we booked as we left the cap each morning, collecting provisions, especially water for the day from the shop across the road. The check in and out from the camp is also at the admin centre and we saw that it could be busy at times although when we did it, we breezed straight through so I guess we were lucky. The initial check in to Etosha (through Galton Gate) was quite straightforward and although it’s not very clear what you need to do, the gate guard was very helpful. Don’t expect much at Okaukuejo Camp but it doesn’t matter, the focus of being there is the park and the animals, which are absolute superb. Get up early, get out and see what the park has to offer, you are unlikely to be disappointed.

"Justly famous but overrated."

This is the honey pot resort of the four NWR camps in Etosha and can be very good. However much of its reputation stems from it being the destination of most of the short term visitors due to its close proximity to the entrance gate at Anderson's. This is not to decry the camp at all as there is no doubt both the location and waterhole are very attractive with many very good wildlife sightings. Guests should be prepared for it being very busy at peak periods with day and short term visitors as all park visitors need to check in and pay fees and register even if entering by another gate. Accommodation is across a broad spectrum from top notch chalets through to campsites. Our Waterhole Chalet was well equipped in the usual NWR house style and was in a 'semi bungalow' with a shared sitting out area at the front. fine for two couples but not so good if your neighbours are strangers. Inside is well furnished and relaxing. Food is usually taken in the very busy restaurant and bar areas. Service is very good most of the time but can be patchy if very busy. Pre-booking is often essential. Food can be from menu or buffet style or a mix of both. Staff are quite helpfull and friendly. Food is of good standard but sometimes there is limited choices. A good lace to stay a night or even two but no longer. The other resorts are quieter.

"bad food"

the lodge was great, the food was as poor as can be. The staff is very ignorant with 2 exceptions. The youngest waiter and waitress. The staff at the reception are just rude, not interested. The management has a lot to do

"Overpriced bit beautiful landscape"

Our visit was a bit of a let down - seems like we were just unlucky with game viewing during our 2 day visit. Only saw different kinds of antelope and absolutely nothing at the waterhole, but no-one can be blamed for that. Where something can be done is the service and accommodation. As a start, we struggled to book - when you phone the Namibian number you get told that South Africans must book at a number in Cape Town. Then they only had waterhole chalets available that is totally overpriced. Eventually we booked through the NWR website - they had double rooms available. Upon check-in we discovered that there is actually a lot of space available in other types of accommodation - not aligned to the booking number or website. We upgraded to a bush chalet that was sold as "with a kitchenette and braai" - just to discover that there is no cutlery. We were prepared for self-catering but then had to make use of the restaurant - an additional expense. The food was actually good - they just dont start breakfast at 6 as advised. I do think it might be better to stay outside the park to get better value for money.

"Not to be re-visited"

A very busy camping site with a lot of dust and little shade, but that was ok with us. The ablutions were ok, but there was no hot water in the ladies for the duration of our stay. The biggest problem we had was on going to the communal kitchen to do our washing up, only to be told that it was reserved for one of the bus tour groups that stay in the site. This turned out to be the case at all the kitchens, and the guides told us we could wash our things in the sink behind the laundry block. I have no idea if this is an official thing or just what the guides for the big groups have taken it upon themselves to decide, but it made things a lot harder for everyone around them that also needed to use the facilities. Dinner at the restaurant was a set charge buffet only, and the quality was poor. We tried the kiosk at lunchtime for sandwiches instead, but gave up after queueing for 30 minutes to even place an order.
