We could not find the lodge with appropriate pricing for the night of our planned stay around Etosha, and booked the campsite in Etosha Village, which was a good opportunity to explore the features of our NAVI motorhome vehicle. The camp shack was clean even though very basic. But everything was properly working, and satisfied our needs for a night. The dinner and breakfast in the main Lodge were very good, and the campsite is located in the walking distance, so visitors do not need to drive between the lodge and campsite once their vehicles are parked. The staff in the lodge are super-friendly and accommodating!

Taleni Etosha Village Campsite Nice campsite with separate ablution area. Hot and cold water. Prep sink is located on the side of the structure. Comes with a covered area for table and chairs. Braai is provided. Plugs are available in case you need to plug anything in. Wood is N$45. At reception, there is a restaurant and bar. Our vehicle had a broken ladder which they helped us fix quickly. Very nice maintenance crew. Kudu, zebra and Guinea fowl wander around the sites. Recommended

Accommodation to an excellent standard, with fresh aircon in very clean rooms. Comfortable bedding, spacious bathrooms, and well-maintained facilities. Catering is a particular highlight, with fantastic braai dinners and ample vegetarian options. Well-stocked bar and nice pool area. The game drive to the main park was excellent value, with a very accomplished driver. Anderson Gate is only 2km away! Overall, as best I can tell from having seen the poor state of the official camps in the park, this is the best way to do Etosha! On the (few) drawbacks, the common area furniture is a bit worn at this point, and more toiletries/soap could be available in the rooms. Service is polite, but not particularly warm - with a few exceptions. Given the value for money, though, I think this is all fine. Finally, I caveat that we were here in the slower, rainy season. I expect this resort would feel differently if full.

My rating lies somewhere between 3 & 4. It was definitely not very good but I would say better than average becuase of the room. The concept is that of a village with the services in the middle surrounded by cabins. It is large - 50 cabins - so you drive to your cabin. I liked our cabin which was spacious and simply but stylishly decorated. It had a large bathroom and shower. We did the sundowner which was very close to the lodge but on an elevated platform with a great view so we enjoyed this. The buffet included a wide selection of meat such a springbok but overall not a fan of buffets and quality from starter to desert was average. There is a small pool - and two mini pools but limited seats and shade. Service was not unfriendly but also not very warm.

Dear Tagesthemen, Thank you for the feedback. Glad you enjoyed our rooms and the sundowner excursion. We do communicate in all our descriptions that we offer buffets - understandably it is not in everyone's taste. Best wishes, The Etosha Village Team

Rooms modern will all comforts. Fridge wit no water! Aircon and fan, dinner was a buffet and I love it, it was perfect. Please try the Eland wit pap and Sheba. It was yummy. Staff are friendly but not so attentive. Breakfast was n let down. Not a lot of options. And had to ask for extra juice. Swimming poop was stunning and the gardens well kept

Stayed one night on way to Etosha. Better than I was expecting. Positives were a delicious buffet (I don’t normally like buffets!) and decent rooms (a little tired but light and airy). It was quite large with 40+ chalets and it felt a bit like a stopping point for lots of groups. But for ease of breaking up the Grootberg to Etosha East journey, was a good stay.

Spaced out cabins that give you private outdoor space and overall privacy. Spacious clean bathroom, in room coffee and tea, sofa and cozy balcony. We also did the 1/2 day game drive with the lodge. Great guide. The hotel was good on keeping schedule…. Focusing on wildlife and making it s great safari experience. Like many other properties you see wildlife on the property. Good food buffet. Great staff. Do recommend.

We stayed at the Taleni lodge for one night. It is conveniently situated a couple kilometers outside Etosha NP. We were in lodge 20 which was a 2-3 minute walk from the dining and bar area. Each lodge has a parking spot, ours was a little tight for our SUV. The room was generously sized and comfortable. Bathroom was great too. It needed a blow dryer so I checked one out at the reception. The lodge had a small porch and benches outside which were perfect for enjoying tea and sunrise. Our stay included dinner and breakfast. All was good. They cater to big groups and seem quite busy. So no personal attention anywhere. Bar area was nice to relax in while using their WiFi as the rooms itself do have WiFi access.
