overview

Ongava Tented Camp is located in a 30 000-hectare private reserve that shares a boundary with Etosha National Park, Namibia's premier wildlife destination. Situated in hill country in the centre of the reserve, the lodge is built out of rock, thatch and canvas and overlooks a waterhole that is floodlit at night.

Activities at Ongava Tented Camp revolve around professionally guided game drives in an open 4X4 in the Ongava Reserve - home to both black and white rhino - as well as the Okaukuejo area of Etosha where classic African mammals such as elephant, giraffe and zebra plus many antelope species are often seen in large numbers. It's also a region famous for its predators - lion and cheetah are relatively common - and you can also experience the thrill of night drives and nature walks in the private reserve, activities not allowed within Etosha itself.

Dining

Meals at Ongava Tented Camp are a communal affair and are usually taken in the thatched dining area of the camp, whereas dinner is often enjoyed around the open-air fireplace or by the swimming pool, both of which overlook the floodlit waterhole in front of camp.

Standard Tent

Accommodation at Ongava Tented Camp comprises nine comfortable walk-in tents. Each one of these classic East African or Meru tents has double doors to maximise your view of the waterhole in front of camp.

The tents have been tastefully furnished with their own en-suite thatched bathroom which includes a flush toilet and open-air private shower, and as the day draws to an end you can watch the sunset from the comfort of your private covered veranda.

Tents 8 & 9 can be taken for families with older children as the two tents share a deck.

Traveller Reviews

  • The Wilderness Safari accommodations / staff / guides were great! One of our best places for animal viewing was Ongava Tented Camp. We sat amongst the pride of 22 lions while they were feeding on their giraffe kill.

"The views of the bush and over the waterhole from each tent makes this camp special - you don't need to go far to see game. Loved the outdoor shower as well."
