Ongava Tented Camp is situated along the southern boundary of Etosha National Park in the 30 000-hectare, privately owned Ongava Game Reserve. The small tented camp is built in a different sector of the reserve to Ongava Lodge.
Etosha National Park has good concentrations of Elephant, as well as all of Namibia's plains game including Springbok, Gemsbok, Wildebeest and Zebra. The reserve offers guests the opportunity to view Black and White Rhino, and there is also a healthy Lion population and a large variety of plains game. The birding is superb with a number of Namibia's specials.
Rooms & Suites:
Ongava Tented Camp, built of stone, canvas and thatch, accommodates 16 guests in eight large comfortable Meru-style tents all with en-suite facilities, open air showers and private verandas. The family unit sleeps four. Activities at this comfortable camp typically take place around the main area with its relaxing bar and swimming pool fronting onto a much-frequented waterhole.
The bar and dining area of Ongava Tented Camp, is built out of rock and thatch and has an intimate feel. Drinks and dinner can be enjoyed around the open air fire place and swimming pool, both of which overlook a productive floodlit waterhole situated at eye level in front of the camp.
There is a family tent that sleep four.
The main dining and lounge area is made from thatch and stone with a bar area and swimming pool nearby. This main area looks out over a waterhole teaming with wildlife.
Etosha National Park is Namibia's premier wildlife destination and at almost the size of Switzerland it is certainly one of Africa's largest game parks. Large herds of plains game concentrate around the waterholes in the dry season, whilst the summer month's sporadic rainfall produces a profusion of life.
Ongava's proximity to Etosha allows for game drives that take in the plethora of game in the National Park and on the Ongava Reserve itself. Other possibilities include guided walks, birding and spending time in hides. A special encounter is white rhino tracking - 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 that give one the chance to see both black and white rhino.
