Halali Restcamp

The word Halali refers to the sound of a bugle or horn announcing the end of a days 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. Halali is the newest of the camps in built the Etosha and was officially opened to tourists in 1967. It also has the largest swimming pool of the park camps. The facilities, like those of the other camps were completely refurbished in 2007, being the 100 years anniversary of the Etosha National Park Strategically located halfway between Okaukuejo and Namutoni, Halali is situated at the base of a dolomite hill, amongst shady Mopane trees. A flood-lit waterhole which is viewed from an elevated vantage point provides exceptional wildlife viewing throughout the day and into the night Other facilities include a restaurant, bar, shop, swimming pool and kiosk.
In the vast arid space of Northern Namibia lies one of Southern Africa’s best loved wildlife sanctuaries. Etosha National Park offers excellent game viewing in one of Africa’s most accessible venues. Zebra and springbok are scattered across the endless horizon, while the many waterholes attract endangered black rhinoceros, lion, elephant and large numbers of antelope. Etosha, meaning ‘place of dry water’, is encloses a huge, flat calcrete depression (or pan) of about 5 000km². The ‘Pan’ provides a great, parched, silver-white backdrop of shimmering mirages to an area of semi-arid savannah grassland and thorn scrub. The pan itself contains water only after very good rains and sometimes for only a few days each year, but is enough to stimulate the growth of a blue-green algae which lures thousands of flamingos.
