Ongava Tented Camp Etosha

Ongava Tented Camp is a classy un-fenced safari destination on the edge of the popular Etosha National Park in awe-inspiring Namibia – a wilderness camp that is literally bustling with life where guests can sit on the balcony watching animals of all kinds at the waterhole. From Ongava Tented Camp set off to explore the magical Ongava Reserve then sip a cold beer in Etosha later, at the famous pan. Cool off in the swimming pool before tucking into luscious meals in the dining room. 

Dinners are enjoyed around a raging fire as part of the inclusive bush experience at this classic safari-style camp, tucked in a hidden valley at the foot of a dolomite hill in Ongava Game Reserve bordering exceptional Etosha National Park. It’s a comfortable, earthy accommodation venue for visitors who love the great outdoors of Namibia, surrounded by African Mopani bush and offering a natural extension of this wild and wonderful landscape.

Simply 8 large comfortable Meru-style tents featuring en-suite facilities, open-air showers and private verandas; the family unit sleeps four. Revel in the attractive main area, handcrafted from stone, canvas and thatch on the edge of a much-frequented waterhole – watching the wildlife coming to drink from here or from the swimming pool is a favourite pastime.

Ongava’s proximity to Etosha allows for game drives in the Etosha National Park and on the Ongava Reserve itself. Other possibilities include guided walks, birding and visiting hides. Ongava holds one of the largest rhino custodianships for the Namibian government in the country and is one of the few private game reserves in southern Africa where guests can see both black and white rhino.



Find Ongava Tented Camp situated in the private concession of Ongava Game Reserve bordering the ever-famous Etosha National Park, an elegant, bush-wise and earthy accommodation venue for visitors who love the great outdoors of Namibia. It nestles in a Mopane forest at the foot of a small hill within the 300 square kilometres of reserve overlooking a waterhole and promising immediate access into Etosha via Andersson’s Gate. There is plenty to see and do in this remote setting – wildlife sightings, birds galore and amazing walks into the bush.

Slick accommodation in 10 luxury en-suite tents, ingeniously raised on neat wooden decks features sweeping views over the active waterhole. Open-air showers, comfortable beds, fans and plenty of space make for a worthwhile safari holiday in Namibia’s natural bush.

Ongava Tented Camp is unfenced and full of life – sip a drink on the open deck while animals of all kinds drink at the waterhole. Then cool off in the swimming pool before tucking into delicious food in the dining room. Grilled meat dinners are enjoyed around a raging fire as part of the inclusive bush experience.

Tick off the wildlife you see in the magnificent Ongava Private Game Reserve – including elephant, giraffe, gemsbok, springbok, red hartebeest, eland, wildebeest, zebra, the rare black-faced impala, lion, leopard and even cheetah. It is thrilling to be part of a white rhino-tracking safari on foot so look out for both the black and white rhinos when you enjoy these thrilling bush trails with expert guides who love what they do.

One special feature of Ongava Tented Camp is the camera set up beside the waterhole which automatically takes pictures when movement is detected. After dark, it captures images in night vision and the following morning guests can take a look to see who came to visit while they were sleeping!
