This Lodge is unlike any other, the only one of its kind in Namibia.

Upon arriving at Onguma The Fort, you will be welcomed by not only friendly staff but also massive raw walls, stunning stone cladding features and a huge tower with views towards Etosha and Fisher's Pan. The Fort will surprise you at every corner; a classical African feel combined with a touch of Moroccan and Indian flavours, characterized by a selection of the most beautiful antique windows and doors.
Situated on the eastern side of Etosha, bordering Fisher's Pan, Onguma Safari Camps is one of Namibia's best-kept secrets! Here you will be afforded the opportunity of experiencing Africa in all its beauty and diversity.
