Beautiful park, sour attitudes at Okaukuejo and Anderson's Gate - We were three cars entering Etosha from Von Lindequist gate after a memorable stay at Emanya Lodge just outside the park. Our first night at Namutoni was good, although one could see the nicely renovated cottages lacked "being loved", showing early signs of disrepair. A highlight was the outdoor shower. Our stay at Halali on the second night went well and on the third day we travelled to Okaukuejo. On our way out of the park, we were very disappointed (in contrast with the other two camps we visited) to be treated with no warmth and in an unfriendly manner. I bought a souvenir at the curio shop and was told there were "no bags" by the unfriendly shop assistant who did not bother to even look at me. The kiosk food was bad, with service to match. When we attempted to leave the park at Anderson's Gate at 16:00, we were told that we were supposed to leave at 13:00 or pay for another day. (This turned out to be a new rule made up at the spur of the moment to inconvenience us.) Because we were travelling with young children, we were in no position to turn back and travel 17km to Okaukuejo to pay the outstanding amount and promised to return the next day to make the payment. When we returned the next day to Okaukuejo to pay, nobody knew what the payment was for (although they did accept the payment...). Other than this, Etosha remains a beautiful park with exquisite fauna and flora.

Very latest review at Etosha - We booked into Halali within 20 minutes and found the staff very friendly and helpful. Loved the resident "ratels" doing their rounds at the dustbins, although sad to see this. Halali should try to develop locked bins at night. Sad to see these wild animals groping for food and trying to chew empty cans. We had a great time and found the facilities clean. Even though the park was filled every night with visitors, the ablution facilities were cleaned daily. We will go again as after all you go to see animals and not to get 5 star service!

Great Park, not so great staff - Etosha is a great park, unique landscape and lots of animals. We stayed outside the park; the staff at the gate (Anderson) were very slow. At the office where we needed to pay, the officer was rude, insisted that she didn't have change. There were 16 people waiting to pay, she treated everybody with the same rudeness. We ended up leaving, paying a huge entrance fee for seven people. Throughout Namibia we experienced the greatest service by the most friendly people. Please train your staff or appoint people that want to be there!

Okaukuejo the admin - We did not stay in the camp, but visited it a few times and found the facilities not up to scratch with a place like Etosha Village. The staff was friendly but the shop and take away facilities are substandard even when compared to the camps in the Kruger Park.

Unfriendly service - Etosha is a very good park and it suits me fine BUT the service at the gates, camp reception and restaurant were abysmal - slow and sour. The couple travelling with us (UK) thought they must be long-term prisoners sent there for their jail term as none of them seemed the least bit interested in their jobs. This is in stark contrast with the service and friendliness displayed in the private sector.
