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.

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.

Once called Etosha Gateway lodge this is a budget accommodation option which has recently been renovated.
These are honest reviews, both good and bad, from our travellers who visited this property.
Excellent place to stay although service was a bit ordinary and food and drinks were quite expensive.
We did not really like this accommodation. It was outdated, too many people, unpersonal and bad food.
We had a lovely stay and were pleasantly surprised by the quality of the dining. Outstanding service.
Lovely accomodation, great pool, nice staff at the restaurant. Honey badgers - who could ask for more.
Great place to stay, food was fine, staff were friendly, they even changed a tyre and fixed it for us!!
Great location, probably the best on our trip, well located, good food and interactive tours available.
Well managed resort, though the restaurant and water hole are not as excellent as the one at Okaukuejo.
lovely accomodation. simple but very efficient. And also a great deal for any airport-related stopover.
Nice resort, restaurant was good. Helpful staff. Room very specious facilities reasonable for braai etc.
Better than Okaukuejo, more private, waterhole more secluded does not feel like a zoo. Accommodation ok.
For Etosha: we loved Olifantsrus, and we thought it was a nice add-on of the more busy Halali experience.
Restaurant has improved since last year. Service was ok. Wildlife at the Moringa waterhole was excellent.
Excellent room, clean, spacious and well spaced out from neighbours. Flood lit waterhole brilliant. Food OK.
A great camp with good facilities - a good experience. Fortunately most of the truck/bus groups bypass here.
Great camp and close to some of our favourite waterholes. Food was good but vegetarian options again limited.
Was what we expected for the price in comparison with the other places. Impersonal but clean and medium food.
Excellent accommodation. The ability to braai and the availability of a "kitchen box: was a pleasant surprise.
Enjoyed this camp. Smaller but quieter. We are vegetarian and they were very accommodating. Loved the waterhole
Nice Bush chalet , and beautifull place to see many animals in maringa whole But the staff was not very friendly
quieter and smaller than okaukuejo but the restaurant was not as good, same for the waterhole. All fine, though.
Very nice with a fantastic water hole. Staff aren't as friendly as at Olifantsrus but then it is a bigger resort
Beautiful chalet. Amazing waterhole with floodlight, we saw 5 black rhinos. Unfortunately we booked but one night!
Great waterhole, beautiful campsite! The market shop is not well equipped; not so fair and honest at the restaurant!
Great waterhole here. Ablutions very clean and well maintained - and plentiful. Nice to have shady areas for eating.
Great rooms, great game drives, the watering hole was awesome, you could sit there and watch the animals come to you
Lovely place with nice chalet ... again a pitty not to have been able to stay longer as half of the chalet were empty.
Restaurant staff not friendly. Meals too expensive. Camp shop not a nice experience. No lights. Accommodation was good.
An interesting water-hole and a few interesting animals walking around the camp at night (honey badgers, mongoose etc).
Good but very dusty and windy. Four nights here was probably stretching it (two at Namutoni probably would have been fine)
Overall good but one of our rooms ( a double cottage) had a sewage problem. Staff not nearly as friendly as in Terrace Bay.
Disappointing waterhole but the location of Halali makes it a great base for exploring the park. Another laborious checkin.
Enjoyed our stay at Halali. Waterhole, accommodation, food - all excellent. Game Ranger very informative on the Game Drive.
Very well equipped family chalet. Waterhole had lovely viewing area away from main camp area-take a torch for the uneven path.
The honeymoon suite was nice, but I think the other rooms are rather bad. A lot of game-drive circles are closed in this area.
Correct. Nothing special but the room is clean, and the view on the waterhole is great (you are outposted) and people are kind
This was a real surprise given it was government run. Our chalets were excellent, buffets very good. Overall a great experience.
In our opinion this camp site is the best one in Etosha East area and we really enjoyed our stay there from every point of view.
Fantastic waterhole viewing. Having to buy a full buffet meal did not suit us. After the first night we just ate snacks instead.
Found the staff here unfriendly. Accommodation was fine but we were unlucky and saw nothing at waterhole on any of our 4 attempts.
Friendly, helpful and good service. Also much more peaceful than Okaukuejo with larger more comfortable rooms and much better meals.
Food almost as good as in Namutoni. The waterwhole is very nice. The chalets are ok but the whole site is not as nice as in Namutoni
Good place for animals - Cleaner than expected regarding negative comments which were on some website -That's mean OK for a big camp
Apart from being in nature (which was really good) the actual accomodation and service we experienced was of less impressive quality.
wonderful place; camp site was outstanding; the lighted night-time water hole was great; I can't imagine we could have found a nicer spot
A great pool; but open and dusty campsite. The shop sold products available at Okaukuejo and Namutoni, but at double the price - not good.
Renovated. Good. The meals are very fine. We daily had problems with the creditcard-payment in the restaurant (the system was not working)
Wonderful to be in Etosha. Food great for meateaters but not so good for vegaetarians and there was no choice that night as there was a BBQ
We didn't realise that the national parks campsites operate on a first come first choose basis, so we moved the second night to a better site
This was the biggest disappointment for us. The food and service here were the worst of whole trip. If going again would stay at other lodge.
we liked this camping place the most in Etosha. There was a real camping atmosphere. And from there you can go to different places in Etosha.
A very good compromise between price and location inside the Etosha. We enjoyed a lot the sunset and the night over the waterhole with rhinos!
Friendly and helpfull staff, poor quality of the meals. Maintenance of the rooms has to be improved. Lights are too dim. (in all NWR camps) :-(
Staff at the site were very friendly and probably some of the best service we experienced. The rooms were better than I expected for the price.
Etosha is a great destination! We were pleasantly surprised with our accommodation! Just wish we had an extra night there but time didn`t allow
Great site, we chose to eat at the restaurant here rather than cook ourselves that night... should have cooked ourselves. Great food, but chaos.
The accommodation in Etosha park was more typical and friendly 10 years ago. Now, NWR aims to be more european but, for us, it is not a success.
Accommodation is fine but evening meals aren`t that great. Okakauejo might be a better alternative given the profusion of game at its waterhole.
A very nice camp and an improvement on the service provided. Lovely accommodation which could not be faulted and generally a great place to stay.
Our night in Halali camp was great. The campsite is nice but most of all we got the chance to see five black rhinos at the water-hole! What a show!
Everything was good/ very good. Good old-fashioned camp buffet for meals with a good call order chef. Chalets very good and an excellent waterhole.
Same as Okaukuejo, they do not know how to treat customers, but that's part of the deal when you are in Etosha. The room was good. Food was average.
Good accomodation , big and nice restaurant, and the lighted drinkplace in the evening is unforgettable and gives the opportunity to come very close
The campsite, the ablution blocks were clean, neat and well kept. The prices of the Etosha are much higher than before, but the camps are worth it!!
Very nice. The view of the rhinos flirting at the waterhole by night was amazing. Staff at the restaurant were very friendly and also very good food.
Great Campsite. Again, nice people. Wonderful to see the black rhinos at their waterhole. The honeybadgers that came to visit were wonderful as well.
Very crowded, but completely worth it to stay in the middle of Etosha. The on-site waterhole was amazing -- we saw 3 black rhinos our one night there.
Etosha great. Chalet clean and functional. Food a bit school dinner like - but here, its about the animals, experience...so we had a brilliant time...
Has also improved. They should install new or brighter floodlights at the waterhole. It is quite dark and difficult to make pictures during the night.
great. we liked the fact that we had to sleep in two different lodges while in Etosha, this gave us the opportunity to visit large areas of the reserve
Some camping sites lack table and chairs while some have. Some camping sites are not in good shape. Excellent swimming pool Shop poorly supplied in food
The attraction of halali is where it is - in the middle of Etosha. The place itself was ok, but nothing special. Food was good, service was indifferent.
nice place and strategic point; goog waterhole; quite expensive the dinner; too expensive the night safari(we didn't see animals and it was really cold).
Great place to stay as a midpoint for a 2-night trip through the park, and the night-viewing waterhole experience was fantastic. Staff not the friendliest
Great water hole, nice cabin. We enjoyed our early morning game drive with the local guide. Dhruv wished there were more vegetarian options in the buffet.
12 oct 2011 Campsite with braai, table, benches and power point. Shared and clean toilets facilities. Nice pool. Good restaurant better than Okaukuejo.
Disappointing site and so-called honeymoon suite! Dirty jacuzzi outside and food not great. The waterhole made up for this as we saw loads of animals there.
another `must` because of the location; acc. simple but sufficient, some things should be repaired: best dinner we had (except Rostock Ritz), great starters;
Bigger room. Place OK. At the reception we found a lady that was as nice as a prison door! Could you do something about it for future clients?! Buffet again...
Not wonderful but worth a night or two. Saw many rhinos and elephants at the lighted waterhole. Easy drive back toward Namutoni to visit waterholes in that area.
Great experience; very good accommodation, friendly staff, but poor service in the restaurant. The Moringa waterhole was excellent for viewing animals in May/June.
Decent accommodation. No complaints although lacked a place to have a few drinks after dinner and the restaurant staff didn`t seem too obliging to stay on too long.
We had some problems in relation with our lacto-ovo-vegetarian diet. On the other hand the location and facilities at Halali were good enough for game drive purposes
Not the best place to camp when it is raining. It gets very muddy. Campsites are larger than Okaukuejo and have more facilities. There is more shade than at Okaukuejo
A wonderful honeymoon suite! Ask for the room `Lion`'!!! The room above the bed is made of glass, so you can admire the stars and in the private garden is a Jaccuzzi!
old facilities, room absolute disgusting,nasty unfriendly staff, no interest to help AN absolute NO GO!!!! ..If I hadn't paid in advance we would have left immediately!
Classic NWR place. Basic confort in the rooms, little bit strait but good bedding and such a beautifull waterhole with myriad of animals. Very professional and kindly staff.
The waterhole is great. Unfortunately the welcome is very impersonal, the drives are expensive, the "buffet" restaurant is not great and the ablutions of campsites smell bad.
Halali should upgrade the kitchen equipment in the self-catering units - they do not supply any food preparation or cooking utensils - not even braai tongs or a cutting knife.
Vast improvement on Okaukuejo Resort, with campsite having shared and clean toilet facilities. Hosts were friendly and helpful. The waterhole was also excellent. Highly Recommend.
Hardly saw any game here but perhaps because of recent rains. Clock on gate said that they closed at 7:30pm yet gate was closed an hour earlier. Conflicting information from staff
An almost-new bungalow with a lot of space. Very high quality. Same high-standard of service and food. The catering staff, especially the Chef, were a good laugh and very attentive
very expensive accomodation according to the service. It was not very `homey`. But although it was good to be there, because Halali is in the middle of the park and a good station.
i think it is the nicest place in etosha. the rooms are new made - nice. but the restaurant is still old. the personal could be more friendly at the reception. the waterhole is nice
Very similar to Okaukuejo Resort although slightly smaller, not as busy and better food. Waterhole gets crowded at night at bust times as there is not as much seating space as others.
I loved it - especially the bed and the fluffy down duvet - it was outstanding quality and provided a good nights rest. The camp itself is really quiet and peaceful. Very high standard.
Halali is well situated, centrally in Etosha, making it a good base. Good campsite in a good location. The floodlit waterhole usually had something interesting - rhinos, hyena, leopard.
Beautiful camp, lovely waterhole, well appointed double rooms, well trained, helpful and friendly staff, food quality and pricing very good, grounds well kept, lovely atmosphere overall
How things have changed in 10 years. Clearly a lot has been spent on infrastructure. Camping still great, but let down slightly by the number of overlander trucks now being accommodated.
All meals were buffet owing to large number of guests and expensive for what was provided. Bedroom cramped - we prefer the original old chalets with more space. Bathroom needed renovation
nicer campsite and much better waterhole than Okaukuejo. confusing because you can choose your campsite and there are not clearly separated - all guests are driving around with no plan...
A wonderful stop with very nice accommodations. Being in the middle of the park meant that we had a great game drive en route and also on our exit via the Namutona Fort camp the next day.
Camp site well situated. The waterhole is not as well lit as Okaukuejo so you need a good camera and night setting to take photos. Recommend a tripod. Remember to check the sighting book.
Accommodation fine. Waterhole great. However, the seating area around the waterhole needs serious attention. Half the benches are broken and when we were there the bins had not been emptied.
We`d stayed at Halali before and so knew what to expect. Our honeymoon chalet was very nice. The waterhole was very good. Food at Halali is good - probably the best of the 3 main Etosha camps.
A perfectly good lodge, but the food was not as good as elsewhere (too salty) and unfortunately the waterhole was not lit at night. However, staff friendly and helpful, good pool, and room good
Pleasant enough staff, great waterhole (Moringa). We had the "honeymoon suite". Poorly designed and obviously meant for king size bed but we had smaller bed, which was not terribly comfortable.
Halali is very well run and the pool was exceptional. The food was also the best I ate. The waterhole wildlife was abundant but it rained when I was there so wildlife around that area was scarcer.
I was really great. A little bit dusty. The accomodations were well cleaned and functional. The restaurant was nice, the waterhole was interesting. The manager of Halali was excellent, very helpful.
Campsites were neat and clean. We loved the waterhole close to the campsite and spend lots off time till late at night at the waterhole. Seen lots of animals in the Etosha. Friendly people at Halali
After Okauluejo resort we were disappointed, the house was okay (clean), but not as beautiful as the one in Okauluejo, bad meal, unkempt, too much people, two nights was too much, one night it`s enough
The access road to the waterhole must be pedestrian only. Bush chalet was nice, however without any specific view. Small bathroom inside an huge room. Dinner and breakfast buffet need huge improvements.
Staff was ok and room was nice. We did not enjoy the jacuzzi since it seemed a little bit dirty (it was outside). The waterhole gave us lots of excitement. We also enjoyed really much a night game drive!
We stayed on the campingsite. The facilities were fine. What a problem was for us, was that we couldn't use our credit card to get gasoline. We didn't have enough cash and could also not pay in US dollars.
Our favourite of the 3 sites we stayed in at Etosha. Much quieter than Okaukuejo. Smaller waterhole but much more natural and visited by loads of animals. Watch out for badgers around the campsite at night!
Double room was nothing special, but was clean and comfortable. Watering hole was good. Buffet was okay, not great. Restaurant service was very good, much better than I expected, given the reviews I have read.
Excellent - we were glad we stayed here rather than outside the camp or at either of the other 2 options. We enjoyed that it was central so we could go either direction. Could've easily stayed for 3 nights here.
Very glad we stayed here as opposed to at the park entrance, as we were in the middle of the park. This allowed us to use travel around most of the park over the 2 days without having to go anywhere near as far.
We camped at Halali, fine campsite, nice big pool, interesting waterhole to walk to. Restaurant wasn't as smart as some of the other sites, but food & service was good, and we loved the omelette guy at breakfast.
The place looks great, but when you look closer,the maintenance is not up to standard. Towel rails falling off and toilet doesn't flush properly. Secondly: not enough communication between reception and restaurant.
Is thriving on this fantastic waterhole. As we are tourists also, we should not complain about them, but for me - after Dolomite - it was not very satisfying with so many of them around, so we left one day earlier.
We were really please with out two bedroomed cottage with kitchenette. Good aircon, clean, fabulous waterhole, restaurant pleasant, and staff mainly friendly. a couple of them were a bit slack but others excellent.
Cabins are really a bit tired. We had 3 rooms and all of them had very poor plumbing in basins and showers which did not drain - not particularly hygienic. The reception staff were surly. Restaurant food was average.
The worst campsite experience with individual pitches poorly defined and organisation disappointing. The facilities on the site were otherwise OK and I suppose that they don`t have to try to hard to attract customers.
We loved it! Amazing waterhole and perfect camp facilities (though we did our own cooking). No complaints! It was also great to experience the atmosphere of being in the park and hearing the stories of other travelers.
Halali is much better than Okaukuejo. Rooms are clean and spacious, staff very gently and restaurant ok. Shop is very interesting too. Water hole in a good location and game drive in the morning with Ranger Rambo perfect.
After an incredible stay in Namutoni, I was I little bit disappointed with the Halali chalet. Confortable, but much more simple than Namutoni. Halali is a good base to visit the Etosha Waterholes because it's in its middle,
The quad Chalet in Halali was very cosy and comfortable. The food was more than acceptable and the service was good. The highlight was definitely the lit waterhole were, among other animals we saw elephants and black rhinos!
Rooms were reasonable, but not consistent in their room services. Food was actually bad for the price and service is shocking! We would also suggest staying in different camps each night so that we can explore more of the park.
The accommodation was extremely comfortable and the chalet with a lounge and kitchenette was a real bonus. However, both in terms of camp facilities and game viewing (waterhole), this camp was nowhere near as good as Okaukuejo.
Very expensive for what you get, the service and food were of poor standard, what you would expect from a govt run business. The reception staff were verging on rude and incompetent. Although the same cannot be said for Namutoni
Very large place - nice to have a kitchen area separate from the sleeping area. Very nice camp with basics found in the store. Waterhole is fabulous - had some great sightings while we were there. We were satisfied with the food.
MUCH nicer than Okaukuejo. Beds comfortable, room spacious, large bathroom, cleaniness was good, Waterhole fantastic, food quite good with several choices. The buildings are not very impressive but the lodging itself was very good.
this is a nice campsite, a bit crowded. The pitches have little shade. Ablution blocks need upgrading and the camp also has a problem with jackals. However it is worth staying here for the amazing experience of the water hole. 5/10
OK but here again there was quite a long discussion about a futile thing : a bottle of mineral water that was replaced by a similar one in the minibar. After all the matter was settled but we expected some more leniency from the staff.
Lovely spacious clean family bungalow. It was secluded and right next to the bush, giving you a feel of being alone. Food was nice. Water hole was lovely and very busy. Saw a heard of elephants with babies. Got some beautiful pictures.
Good centrally located camp for exploring Etosha - waterhole had good activity. Using the Braai was fun but would be good if the camp shop could sell some tools. The catering staff (at Breakfast) were really friendly and food very good.
We preferred this quieter location to that of Okaukuejo ... and our accommodation was fantastic. Didn`t want another expensive buffet meal, so had a braai. With hindsight, would have preferred one night in Okaukuejo and two nights here.
The best chef in the known universe is at Halali. My son loved his burgers and we both enjoyed the game meals and the chocolate mouse was amazing. This added to the fantastic game drives and large cooling pool. We want to go back. Fantastic.
Better than I expected. LAst time 8 years ago it was not so nice. Anyway, the bush chalet is nice from inside but the chalets are badly integrated within the camp such that one does not like to open the window or stay for a longer time inside...
Preferred the more intimate atmosphere and the privacy. Food was OK. Swimming pool the best we came across (the only one big enough to actually swim in). Room and bathroom comfortable. Happy hours at the water hole (38 elephants arrived at midday)
We stayed in the family bush chalet `Mushara.` It was very nice with a great deck and outdoor fire /grill area. Easy walk to the waterhole were we watched black rhino, elephant, impala, etc. Best place in the park to get to the prime lion viewing spots.
The pitches are very basic and close to eachother. The ablution blocks are very well maintained. Allthough this is a less popular camp in Etosha, it is still worth it because of the waterhole. Do beware of honeybadgers stalking the rubish bins at night.
Wonderful position but the service and the accommodation are quite basic for the price. The person at the reception was bored and not supportive at all, we had to fight for a tour we reserved but she forgot to register. The waterhole is really fantastic!
We enjoyed our stay at Halali. We loved the water hole. We stayed in a double room. The camp provided a mattress for my daughter. Even with the mattress the room was sufficiently spacious. The room included a small bar fridge, as well as a kettle and 2 mugs.
We again had probably the best room in the camp with our own jacuzzi!! Nice to be able to walk around the camp as sitting in the car all day meant our legs began not to know how to work. Rhino chasing off a hyena at the water hole after dark was great to see.
Our least favorite pick. We liked the room, but there were many spiders in the bathroom which was a bit of an issue to me. Also the waterhole is not so great. The food options were strange as the had buffet for lunch, but only a very limited choice for dinner.
Let camping clients know that it can get below freezing here in winter - they might opt for a chalet! the facilities here are excellent, especially the convenience of the camp laundry and kitchen. And we liked the Zebra bar and the sense of community around it.
Good sized chalet with lounge/kitchen area separate from the bedroom. Comfortable bed. Meals were buffet style - adequate, but nothing special. Good shop on site for food and souvenirs. Nice waterhole area, although, unfortunately, we did not see any rhino here.
Accommodations were pleasant, tho the kettle didn't work. Waterhole absolutely prefectly situated and seating around well arranged. Everything good except found the store very low in stock and nothing worth buying as gifts. Would love to go back to Etosha for sure
Accomodation was very tired and the "resort has seen better days" Reception staff were having an'off' day, other staff were trying very hard to make up for it. Still saw 2 young male rhinos disputing ownership of the water hole, a lucky encounter for casual visitors.
Very crouded, it was hard to find a camping-spot in the dark and we had to settle for one next to the toilets. It would be better if they give you you're campsite (in order of the booking time, so if you book a couple of months on beforehand you get the better spots).
Very poor service; front desk people suffer lack of experience in dealing with customer; service staff was not attentive and friendly at all; Compared to the prices paid for this camp the service level was much to poor; I will not stay in NWR camps next time in Namibia
The waterhole here was very disappointing, we spent about 2 hrs there in the evening and saw nothing. We may have just been unlucky, so worth a visit if you have a few nights but if you only have 1 or 2 nights then I would strongly recommend staying at Okaukuejo instead.
Thank goodness for air conditioning! Grudging service throughout: no one cleaned, we were ignored at meals, and paying for meals was a protracted and inefficient and humorless process. We weren`t there for the accomodations, though, rather for the animals, and animals we saw!
The position is strategically at the middle; the waterhole is fantastic with elephants, rhinos, hyenas. The rooms are very comfortable. We think that is better to stay here instead of changing place for the night because you can see the holes and to come back to the best ones.
Excellent accomodation, great food, good service. Loved the waterhole at the camp and saw great game. Signage in the camp is poor and it is difficult to see signs to waterhole and to chalets. They should make signs that are more visible and legible. Otherwise a great experience
Halali was good. I`d been to Etosha so I knew what to expect. Our only complaint was that the mosquitoes were awful and it would be nice if the restaurant either didn`t seat people outside during mosquitoe season or put up some kind of temporary screening for the outside dining area.
Also enjoyable, seemed a bit quieter than Okaukuejo, and again had very good animal viewing at the water hole. Both resorts lack any option for a light snack for lunch (like a sandwich) - all they were offering was a sit-down buffet meal or the usual drinks/chips/biscuits in the shop.
This was a very big campsite with lots of busy spots. however the facilities were always clean and handy and the pool was clean if a little busy. The restaurant was handy as we ran out of cooking gas and they were able to take cards as we had issues with the ATM before going into Etosha.
Halali is in the center of the park and can be reached either via entering the park at Okaukuejo (Andersson Gate) or via Namutoni (the Von Lindequist Gate)Download Map
