Halali Restcamp in Etosha Park

Etosha National Park - Namibia

Halali is a large restcamp and is strategically located halfway between Okaukuejo and Namutoni in Namibia's Etosha National Park. The superb location and decent value for money option make it a popular tourist destination, especially for guests who want to join a night drive. Finding accommodation is often difficult though, especially in the peak season of July to October, so booking in advance is advised.

A varied and abundant amount of Namibian wildlife come to the secluded, scenic, floodlit waterhole which is a short walk from the main camp itself. The major benefit here is that you will not be disturbed or distracted when game viewing. Surrounding the camp are some of the most visited waterholes in the park. The name Halali, of German origin, is derived from the bugle call made to announce the end of a hunt.

The restaurant serves a breakfast buffet and 'a la carte' menus for lunch and dinner. Buffet meals can be arranged for larger groups. Book in at reception and browse around the tourist shop for your groceries, books and curios.

Accommodation at Halali is varied:

  • Rooms: The Double Rooms are the same size as a one-bedroom chalet. En-suite bathrooms with complimentary toiletries. Air-conditioning, lamps, tea/coffee station and a mini-fridge, mosquito nets are standard. Relax on a small corner sofa.
  • Family Chalet: 2 secluded, air-conditioned, self-catering Family Chalets with two separate bedrooms with twin beds and mosquito nets in each. These spacious chalets have a separate lounge, kitchen and bathroom. The kitchen is equipped with a limited selection of crockery and cutlery, a small oven, fridge, kettle and tea/coffee station. Outside is a shaded entertainment area with built-in braai, table and chairs. These chalets are the closest to the waterhole.
  • Two Bedroom Bush Chalet: smaller than the family chalets, and further from the waterhole. Twin beds in each bedroom and shared bathroom and a separate toilet, air-conditioning and mosquito nets. Relax in a small open plan lounge/kitchen furnished with two sofas, a small fridge, tea/coffee station, crockery/cutlery. A table and chairs and a built-in braai are right outside.
