Ongava Game Reserve provides visitors with the ultimate in luxury and comfortable accommodation


Ongava Game Reserve provides visitors with the ultimate in luxury and comfortable accommodation. This is a natural connection to the surroundings of the area. Ongava Game Reserve is a result of unproductive farmland that has been turned into conservation for Namibia/s wildlife. It is a 30000-hectare conservancy and offers the visitor an exclusive experience close to one of the best National Parks in Namibia.

It is privately owned and the reserve dedicates itself to the conservation of wildlife and the natural surroundings. The reserve shares a common boundary with the Etosha Park and makes this a unique location for visitors.

Little Ongava is situated in the private 66,000-acre Ongava Game Reserve where it shares a common boundary with Etosha National Park. This small luxury camp nestles on the crest of a hill commanding magnificent vistas of the plains stretching for miles to the horizon, offering an extraordinary experience as the focal point of an Etosha journey.

This intimate camp has only three spacious suites each with its own plunge pool, en-suite bathroom, “sala”, and outdoor shower. The lounge and dining areas have wonderful views of a productive waterhole below the camp, the open deck allowing for relaxed, stylish dining under the African sky. Guests at Little Ongava share a dedicated guide and vehicle, ensuring the best possible nature experience at one of Africa’s great wildlife destinations.

The well-established Ongava Lodge is situated in the privately owned Ongava Game Reserve along the southern boundary of Etosha National Park. Placed as it is close to the top of a hill in the foothills of the Ondundozonanandana range, the vantage point is beautiful and overlooks a well-frequented waterhole and the plains beyond.

Ongava Lodge offers luxury accommodation in 14 rock-and-thatch en-suite chalets. There are impressive views over the camp’s waterhole from the main lounge and dining areas and there is also an inviting pool to cool off in the heat of the day. Activities include game drives into Etosha, spending time in the camp hide, and nature drives and walks on the reserve.

Immersed in the African Mopani bush, Ongava Tented Camp is a natural extension of this wild, 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 on the south side, near the Andersson Gate.

Ongava’ s 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 wildlife coming to drink from here or from the swimming pool is a favourite pastime.
