You can relax next to the swimming pool or drink under the bar's thatched roof. You can sit in the lounge and dining area overlooking the small waterhole to watch the world go by. Come and enjoy the luxury comforts of Onguma Forest Camp and relax within the natural wilderness surrounding you.

Onguma Forest Camp is unfenced; no children under seven years will be allowed. Children 7 to 11 years of age sharing with adults pay children’s rate. Children 12 and above will be in a family room at the total rate. Game drives are on open safari vehicles, so children under ten years cannot join game drive vehicles for safety reasons.
