The word Halali refers to the sound of a bugle or horn announcing the end of a day’s hunting, and I suppose the German soldiers that were posted here enjoyed the hunting until Governor Von Lindequist wisely declared the Etosha a game park and reserve.
Strategically located halfway between Okaukuejo and Namutoni, Halali is situated at the base of a dolomite hill, amongst shady Mopane trees. The camp is easily accessible either through Anderson or Von Lindequist entrance gates. A flood-lit waterhole which is viewed from an elevated vantage point provides exceptional wildlife viewing throughout the day and into the night. Accommodation is provided in honeymoon chalets, family chalets, two and four bed bush chalets and double rooms – all converted with large sliding doors to the outside, to allow visitors to experience and benefit from the peace and tranquillity of the natural surroundings.
Other facilities include a restaurant, bar, shop, swimming pool, kiosk and camping facilities.
