Are you looking for a private Namibian safari where you get personal attention, lavish accommodation and exclusive game drives? We have just the place for you at the ultra-exclusive Onguma Camp Kala overlooking its own water hole where game comes from afar to drink and graze.
This is the eastern boundary of the famous Etosha National Park and Camp Onguma Kala has been created in the place where once Onguma Treetop Camp once stood so it boasts the same beautiful bush setting the accommodation and lodge are completely revamped and new. This is luxury on a new level at a personalised retreat in only four raised suites designed to be intimate and spacious.
This is the private Onguma Nature Reserve so picture wood fired hot tubs, plunge pools, large decks outside showers and a shaded outside sala area with a king sized day bed and infinite waterhole and bush views. Spend hours here, between game drives to Etosha National Park and into the Onguma reserve where diverse wildlife exists.
Lavish amenities include a spa, a gym, a modern dining area with show or interactive kitchen and a pantry wherein guests can wander. Sip a cocktail at the bar, chat to the chef and then wander down to the large pool and deck for a swim – do some yoga on the yoga deck and sit around the fire pit at night under myriad stars while the chef grills fresh venison for dinner.
All rooms and main areas are linked with neat wooden boardwalks with waterhole views and the central landmark is a plastered termite mound, resembling the many such natural creations found in this Etosha region.
Game drives traverse some 34 000 ha of open veld where black rhino wander, not forgetting the awesome lion prides, leopards and herds of antelope and zebra seen in these parts. The simple fact that you have chosen Onguma Private Reserve means that you are already contributing to their conservation efforts, to preserve this enclave forever as a heritage and biodiversity hotspot.
We recommend that you book a suite or book the entire camp on an exclusive-use basis and we will customise your deal for you including flights and other extras. We rate this lodge as one of the most opulent and pleasant, private and hands-on in the Etosha national Park region!
Onguma Camp Kala is one of the many Onguma Private Reserve camps but this one is new, having taken the place of the previous Tree House camp and its elevated position at a waterhole on the eastern boundary of Etosha National Park is unique.
Find the height of luxury at Onguma Kala where only 4 opulent suites await privileged visitors who are interested in game viewing, awesome landscapes and being part of the greater conservation picture of Namibia. So, the camp is exclusive and involves early morning game drives into Etosha, evening game drives into Onguma reserve, amazing interpretative walks and time spent in the ground level Onkolo Hide. Birding is also an opportunity here and when the safaris are done, do some gym or some yoga, and request a pampering spa treatment.
The main camp facilities extend onto neat polished wooden decks above the waterhole where wildlife gathers throughout the day. The camp swimming pool is a delightful hideout from the heat of the day so grab a drink and a book and just do it.
We love the lounge area and the interactive kitchen where a talented chef creates mouth-watering foods for guests all day. Wander into the vast pantry for a snack and grab a cocktail while you watch the chef create. The interesting termite heap central tower of the camp is thatched and the main attraction where all social gatherings occur – why not book out the entire camp for your exclusive group or family or business colleagues and take time out to reconnect? We love the ethnic décor, the dedication to wildlife on the walls and the plastered mud look that goes with the landscape of desert, mountains and waterholes.
Exquisite architecture has been carefully planned in an attractive, natural way so that nature remains untouched but nature is all inclusive in this Onguma Kala Camp. The firepit area, the outside dining deck outside showers and inspiring wood fired hot tub add so much value to an already timeless safari in Namibia. Large French doors open out to bring in the wilderness and guests can gaze for hours into the plains out yonder.
