The Fort, A Luxurious Safari Lodge In the Onguma Game Reserve Bordering The Famed Etosha Park
Onguma The Fort is unlike any other safari lodge in Namibia, the only one of its kind. The magnificent scarcity of the Etosha Pans, adorned only with its wild animals and hundreds of Camel Thorn trees, provides guests with probably one of the best sunset views in northern Namibia - overlooking the beautiful desolation.
Every turn will amaze you with classical African vibes combined together with light Moroccan and Indian accents. This is all thanks to the carefully selected antique windows and doors throughout the building.
Onguma Game Reserve is one of Namibia's best-kept secrets! It provides visitors with the chance to experience all that the country and region have to offer in terms of beauty and diversity.
Located within a 5-minute drive of Namibia's Etosha National Park, from where one can view and photograph some of Africa's famed wildlife with Etosha Pan as a backdrop.
Onguma The Fort is a must-visit for any safari enthusiast looking for the very best in privacy and intimacy.
