Traveller Reviews

  • the staff was falling over us to insure attentive service. The Tented Lodging was unique but not luxurious ala Sabi Sands

    Joe Jennings, July 2016
  • Fantastic tents with great views on their waterhole.

    Peter Rouhi, September 2014
  • Large beautifully designed and decorated tents and of course the living and dining areas superb. Bath with soaking hot water, very comfortable bathroom area. Excellent food. Their reserve that they are in has cleared bush, so its possible to see plenty of animals. Our night drive with a guide resulted in a black rhino mummy with her baby. Plenty of other game, civet, genet, antelope, etc etc.

  • It was very special, a bit more modern, vibe than your typical lodge. Great service. Great food. Would come back to stay there, but I personnaly think the drives in Onguma were not special.

    Frank Kleibrink, April 2008
  • It is quite amazing. The food there was by far the best out of all places.

    Martin Wurdinger, April 2008
  • This was interesting place right on the edge of Etosha. Only one nights stay so didn’t see many animals but a couple of nights here would be a great place for exploring Etosha. Good food and great place to eat dinner on the large wooden verandah overlooking the waterhole.

    Fiona Brindley, January 2008
  • We were delighted with the Onguma Bush Camp which we had the opportunity to visit the tented camp and the Fort.

"The Herero word 'Onguma' means "The place you don't want to leave", and I can say this about this camp. A feeling of welcome & warmth envelopes you from the moment you walk through the entrance. The tents are built in a U-shape around the waterhole, offering both privacy and fantastic views. Onguma Tented Camp certainly creates a new standard for a luxury tented camp."
