Moringa waterhole at Halali Restcamp in Etosha National Park

Moringa is the floodlit waterhole located at Halali restcamp. The phantom tree, or fairy-tale tree, Moringa ovalifolia, which grows on Halali Koppie, lends its name to this waterhole.

About:  Moringa was created in 1992, at the same time Helio waterhole was closed down in order to provide Halali camp with a floodlit waterhole, like the other camps in Etosha.

Originally large mopane trees up to 15m high surrounded the waterhole, but elephants have since pushed these over and destroyed most of them.

One of the best places to spot leopard in Etosha, Moringa is the ideal place to stage an all-night vigil in search of these elusive predators. White rhino also make nocturnal visits to Moringa on a regular basis.

Water Source: Artificial waterhole
