If it wasn't for the waterhole...
Okaukuejo is not the place you go for relaxation. We stayed in a waterhole chalet, which was very small with direct neighbors, which I did not expect. There are no direct views to the Waterhole. If you want that do yourself a favor and book the premier waterhole chalet, which also seems much bigger. You won't be alone though as the crowds gather in front of the rooms to gain access to the views, which are nothing but amazing. We saw black rhinos, elephants, hyenas every night. I would come here again for the views but definitely bring my own food as the restaurant is less than average. This first night I ordered a vegetarian platter fold wrap, which sounded fancy but was nothing else than a wrap with mixed veg (the frozen once) for NAD 100, which I find unacceptable. The steak my husband had and the venison we both had the same night were not great either. The waiters were very sweet though and even though they lack proper training they were really trying.
We visited for two nights, and it was just amazing. We stayed in the Premier Waterhole Chalets, beautiful room, great location and friendly staff. From our bed we watched elephants, hyenas, rhinos and various bucks come down to the waterhole. The whole experience was magical for our kids. The rooms have some water issues during the day, but it wasn’t ever an issue for us.
One night stay in Okaukuejo
Had a lovely time with my wife. We stayed at the waterhole chalets. Saw a large herd of elephants at the waterhole. We received exceptional service from Josephine, who went out of her way to assist us in every way possible
Amazing few days
We had a fabulous cabana next to the watering hole. They are a bit small but have full double beds with nets and a good bathroom. Each cabana has an outside seating area to look at the watering hole as well as a private area. Breakfast was good choice of buffet from fruit, cold meats and cheese with eggs/omelettes cooked to order. Dinner was well cooked with good choice of meats, but the wine list is overpriced compared to other lodges. There were a couple of staff training issue that need to be addressed. Morning and evening game drives available and an onsite shop for souvenirs and self catering shopping. Sitting by the water hole is a fabulous experience just so peaceful waiting for the different wildlife to appear, either singularly or in herds.
Fantastic accommodation and waterhole
We were a group of birdwatchers travelling through Namibia and stayed here for 2 nights in bungalows that faced the waterhole. What a fantastic place. The bedroom was a good size, a double bed with mosi nets. Hot shower, kettle with complimentary tea & coffee, fridge, good air con but a bit too noisy to sleep with it running. The bed was comfortable, if a little on the firm side. Evening meals were excellent, steaks cooked to order, plenty of veggies. Breakfast was delicious, with a good choice. Good selection of beer, wines & soft drinks. The waterhole was amazing with plenty of seating around and a viewing platform. It’s floodlit during the hours of darkness and we saw zebra, antelope, warthogs and even lions. The bird life around the grounds was fantastic. Lovely staff. Only paid WiFi
