InfoChild Policy

Ongava Tented Camp is in the Ongava Game Reserve on the southern border of Etosha National Park. The camp offers luxury tents made of stone, canvas and thatch that blend exceptionally well with the surroundings. The rooms overlook a waterhole where you can watch the wildlife come and go. The camp can host a maximum of 16 guests in 8 tents. Because of its size, it's an exclusive destination for the discerning traveller.

The tents have en-suite bathroom facilities with open-air showers and a private veranda for relaxation. The central area consists of a bar and dining area where guests can kick off their shoes and sit back. There's also an open deck with a campfire overlooking the swimming pool and the waterhole.

Activities at Ongava

Activities around the lodge are offered throughout the day. There are morning and afternoon game drives in Ongava. You can also join a night game drive. The nature walks are very popular at Ongava and the perfect opportunity to explore and learn. During these walks, you can track white rhinos with a qualified guide.

Ongava Tented Camp is unique because it offers an exclusive experience within beautiful and natural surroundings. Because only a few guests can stay here at a time, it ensures a personal experience. You want to stay away from bustling crowds that disturb the wildlife. This is very much a Hemingway-style safari.

  • Private vehicle is only bookable for consecutive days of the entire booking.
