After a two week trip around Namibia and staying at a few far more expensive camps/lodges, Dolomite still remains one of my favorites. If nothing else you must go for the view! This camp is perfectly situated, being perched on top of hills overlooking the western side of artists. We spent 2 nights at Halali before coming here and loved seeing the complete change in the scenery. The tents are rather basic, but very nicely appointed. The only downside was the fact that we were there in the middle of summer and there is no AC, but there is a standing fan. The pool and bar area were stunning as well. Staff were nice and the food was very good. Sitting on the balcony of our room staring out across the plains is the most relaxed I felt during our entire trip.

Dolomite Camp is unique in its setting; unfenced on top of a Dolomite hill. The road in from Galton Gate is not for the fainthearted and nothing less than a 4WD should be used. As soon as we arrived at the car park a 4WD buggy arrived to collect all 4 of us and all our luggage and we were driven up to reception. Once signed in, we were driven up the narrow winding paths to our chalets. We chose the luxury chalets and they were amazing. The views across the plains are unsurpassed and from our plunge pool, deck or bed we watched animals passing by all day long. Each chalet is totally private and you do not see or hear any noises from the camp, only the birds and the very chatty dassies on the rocks below. You are advised not to walk around at night on your own, but to phone for the buggy. The reviews on that service have been poor, but we cannot fault it, it was efficient and quick. All our meals, breakfast, lunch and dinner were lovely and there were a few pubs and viewpoints to enjoy and relax in. Sadly only spent 2 nights here, definitely could have done with a few more days.

Room Tip: We had Chalets 19 & 20 on the cooler sunrise side. Chalets looking over the waterhole had amazing views but would be very hot.

We went to Dolomite Lodge after 5 days in Etosha. It was a perfect mid break between our two camping spots. Beautiful views, lovely pool area. You park your car and wait to be collected (our wait was a bit long). A little buggy takes you up to your room which a bit of a walk from the eating areas and pool. If you can catch a buggy they will lift you but our experience was that it was better to just walk. We werent expecting 5 star so we enjoyed this stay for what it was. Lots of things could be done better but as a refresh between camping this was just what we needed.

Wifi was very bad. Food was ok but staff were over worked. Only one buggy to transport everyone back to their rooms (not meant to walk at night due to the fact that it is unfenced and as such open to predators) which meant long waits after dinner when you were cold and tired.
No family units so 5 of us squeezed into a 2 bedroom chalet with one mattress on the floor.

Having said all that - it was fun!

The camp is located on a rocky outcrop. You can't drive all the way to it, but the staff will pick you up with your luggage. We had to wait about 5 minutes, some people had to wait longer when it was busy. If you don't have luggage you can make your own way. The luxury tents are perched on the outcrop with stunning views over the national park. They are very comfortable - wooden structures with canvas sides, nice warm shower etc. You can't have braais/bbqs so have to use the restaurant. The choice is limited but perfectly good and it is in the middle of nowhere. Some comments complain about the service - it's not amazing but nothing to complain about. The wifi wasn't working, which was common on our trip, but actually that was quite liberating.

There's an amazing infinity pool too. The nearest waterhole has herds of elephants every afternoon. You can just about see them from the end of the path at the camp, but it's better to drive there.

The set-up (and idea) of Dolomite Camp is great. You're perched on top of a waterhole in Etosha with a prime view. The animals and the natural setup don't disappoint. If your happy to just have your fill of animals, away from mass tourism on the other side of the park then this is the place for you. However the camp is far from luxurious and could do with some maintenance tips.

Room Tip: The guide told us that more animals frequent the watering hole in summer.
