Halali Camp, Namibia
Arrived after 13 hours bouncing around the truck with a few stops for pee breaks and to buy food for cooking. It wasn’t as bad as it sounds. There’s a sort of Dunkirk spirit around on these long trips and people are kind and helpful towards each other. We’re also tolerant of each othrrs occasional grumpy moments. This leads to a harmonious truck. Most of us read or snoozed. I snoozed a lot.

In an otherwise flat area Halali Camp is perched between a few hills and koppies. Thicker vegetation makes this popular with leopard, rhino and elephant. Situated halfway between Namutoni and Okaukuejo the Halali Rest Camp centrally located in close proximity of some of the most popular waterholes of the Etosha National Park. A short walk will take you to the camp’s floodlit waterhole with excellent day and night game viewing.
‘Halali’ is the German word for the traditional ending of a hunt. The camp signifies the end of game hunting and the rise of eco-tourism in Namibia. Halali offers active guests the largest pool in the park and its strategic location between Namutoni and Okaukuejo makes it a great stopover for lunch, ice cream, a cool drink or just petrol.
