Onguma The Fort, Etosha National Park.

Sharing the eastern border of the Etosha National Park, Onguma Game Reserve is a beguiling mixture of sophistication and relaxation, of elegance and the earth. In the local Herero language, Onguma means ‘the place you don’t want to leave’, and the 34 000- hectare reserve certainly lives up to its name.

Onguma The Fort – iconic luxury

The Fort, unlike any other, is built in a perfect spot to give guests a stunning sunset view across Etosha Pan and the waterhole. The Moroccan inspired Fort consists of 12 mini-suites and one Sultan suite, all completely private and about 50 metres apart, each with a bar fridge, a fireplace and air-cooling system. The spacious bathroom has an inside and outside shower. From every area of the room, wooden decks lead you to the outside seating area with sun loungers for relaxing and enjoying the extraordinary view across the Pan.


Etosha Aoba Lodge – for a secluded bush-lodge experience

Etosha Aoba is an intimate, relaxed bush lodge with a natural character that gives guests a taste of wilderness and yesteryear safari style. Featuring thatched roofs, slasto floors and wooden furniture, the 11 bungalows and central area are surrounded by  nature and a small waterhole. The down-to-earth friendly character of the lodge and staff introduces you to the true spirit of the Namibian bush. A well stocked wine cellar compliments hearty meals served under the stars.


Onguma Bush Camp – ideal for families

Onguma Bush Camp offers guests a stunning waterhole around which the main guest areas are positioned, ensuring there is something to see while enjoying every meal. Thatch, wooden decks and canvas ensure the feel of Africa is experienced by all the senses. The 16 rooms provide varied accommodation for singles, couples and families. Since the camp is fenced, it is perfectly suitable for families, allowing little ones to stretch their legs while parents relax around the pool.


Onguma Tented Camp – the ultimate in safari chic

Onguma Tented Camp has a stunning main building and seven tents providing private, exclusive tented accommodation. The seven spacious tents extend the U-shaped design, allowing both for privacy and for fantastic views across the waterhole. Each tent was designed with attention to detail and has an indoor and outdoor shower, a gorgeous modern interpretation of an old zinc bath, a separate toilet, two stone basins and a private sitting area with uninterrupted views of the waterhole.


Onguma Tree Top Camp – up among the tree tops

Onguma Tree Top Camp is small and intimate, especially designed for those travellers who like to truly experience the bush in all its raw splendour. The camp, with only four tents, was built on wooden stilts amongst the tree tops with full views over one of the most beautiful waterholes on Onguma Game Reserve. It is ideal for small groups or families travelling together and can be booked in its entirety – with private chef, host and guide. What better way to experience the wilderness?


Onguma Tamboti Luxury Campsite – the ultimate in luxury camping

Newly built Tamboti Luxury Campsite boasts a lovely restaurant  overlooking the waterhole – for days when you just want to relax and want to enjoy a hearty meal. The 15 campsites are well placed to offer privacy and each one is equipped with generous private ablutions and ample plugs for charging cameras and equipment. The swimming pool and small supply shop ensure campers want for nothing! Game drives can be booked at reception.
