Onguma Forest Camp

Enjoy exclusive wildlife viewing on open safari vehicles at Onguma Forest Camp.

Enjoy exclusive wildlife viewing on open safari vehicles at the private Onguma Forest Camp situated in a magnificent 34 000-ha game reserve along the impressive Omuramba Ovambo riverbed, close to Namibia’s famous Etosha National Park. Learn about the wilderness, the charismatic big 5, the many smaller critters and a vast array of indigenous flora at this honeymoon and family safari destination. 

Onguma Etosha Aoba affords you an authentic bush experience without compromising on comfort when you choose to stay here, in Onguma Private Game Reserve on the ideal safari holiday in Namibia. Stay in 11 beautifully renovated rooms with riverbed views, close to the thatched communal area and all featuring amazing private decks, ensuite showers, bush minibars, air conditioning, fans, tea and coffee-making facilities and views across the captivating landscape. 

There is something for everyone in 4 heritage bungalows, three bush suites ideal for families, 3 explorer bungalows for extra privacy and a honeymoon bungalow with an outside shower and bath, stunning double hammock and private deck.

Long game drives in this typical Namibian landscape bring unforgettable rewards of wildlife sightings never dreamed of, birds in all their exotic glory and plenty of huge old trees, reptiles and more. Then, relax around the swimming pool and sip a cold beer at the cool thatched bar. Sit on a comfy sofa in the lounge area and watch animals come and go at the panoramic waterhole. Etosha Aoba Lodge is a relaxing and luxury affair, made for guests who want to be in the wilderness near Etosha, but remain peaceful, away from the rush of vehicles. 



The lovely Onguma Forest Camp, formerly known as Etosha Aoba Lodge, is found in a Tamboti forest on the private Onguma Reserve, a 340 square kilometre paradise only 15 minutes from the eastern gate into Etosha National Park. Onguma Forest Camp offers visitors the opportunity to explore both of these protected areas! 

Accommodation in true Namibian style has recently been upgraded and renovated to offer visitors 11 stylish rooms built along the dry ‘Omuramba Owambo’ riverbed. Honeymoon couples will love the romantic honeymoon chalet with its outdoor shower on the private balcony and bathtub. Three newly established Explorer Bungalows boast private patios, air-conditioning, en-suite facilities and stunning views into the bush.

Four Heritage Bungalows are ideal for couples wanting privacy but plenty of comforts immersed in nature. And families can choose the three Bush Suites with their two bedrooms, sleeper couches and twin beds to cater for children. All cabins feature bush minibars, air-conditioning, tea and coffee stations, showers and mosquito nets.

All guests meet at the communal swimming pool in the heat of the day and the thatched bar is the place to be for sundowners. The guest dining room with an attractive terrace looks over the active waterhole – watch wildlife in comfort. Sip a new wine from the wine cellar in the corner, a comfy corner for respite from a hectic day of viewing game! Those seeking solitude can sit in the library with a book about Namibia.

Most visitors use Onguma Etosha Aoba as a base for their own drives into Namibia’s Etosha National Park. Onguma Etosha Aoba can also organise morning game drives in open vehicles with professional guides. Evenings are set aside for night drives into the Onguma Reserve, a different perspective on the Namibian landscape.
