Ongava Tented Camp

Ongava Tented Camp, Etosha National Park

Ongava Tented Camp is un-fenced and bustling with life. Guests can sit on the balcony watching animals of all kinds at the waterhole – then 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. Situated in the private concession of Ongava Reserve bordering Etosha National Park, Ongava Tented Camp is a comfortable, earthy accommodation venue for visitors who love the great outdoors of Namibia.

Immersed in the African Mopani bush, Ongava Tented Camp is a natural extension of this wild and wonderful landscape.

The classic safari-style camp is tucked in a hidden valley at the foot of a dolomite hill in Ongava Game Reserve bordering Etosha National Park.

Eight large comfortable Meru-style tents all have en-suite facilities, open-air showers and private verandas; the family unit sleeps four. The main area, built of stone, canvas and thatch, fronts onto 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.

Ongava Tented Camp Overview

Situated in the private concession of Ongava Reserve bordering Etosha National Park, Ongava Tented Camp is a comfortable, earthy accommodation venue for visitors who love the great outdoors of Namibia.

Nestling in a Mopane forest at the foot of a small hill within the 300 square kilometres of reserve and overlooking a waterhole, the camp offers 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.

Accommodation in 10 luxury en-suite tents, raised on wooden decks offers views over the 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. Guests can sit on the balcony watching animals of all kinds at the waterhole – then cool off in the swimming pool before eating delicious food in the dining room. Dinners are enjoyed around a raging fire as part of the inclusive bush experience.

Wildlife seen at Ongava includes elephant, giraffe, gemsbok, springbok, red hartebeest, eland, wildebeest, zebra and the rare black-faced impala, as well as lion, leopard and cheetah. It is thrilling to be part of a white rhino tracking safari on foot! Visitors may be lucky enough to see both black and white rhinos!

One special feature of Ongava Tented Camp is the camera set up beside the waterhole, automatically taking 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!
