Onguma Nature Reserve has more than 34,000 hectares of protected land and wildlife. Here you will have the opportunity of experiencing Africa in all its beauty and diversity. The reserve has a very popular waterhole with animals and a lodge. Bush Camp has a stunning view of the waterhole from its deck. The lodge was built to make the most of the surroundings and is perfect for appreciating nature. See one of Namibia's best-kept secrets!
You can spot many plains game coming to the water hole. These include kudu, giraffe, eland, oryx, hartebeest, zebra and impala. Big cats such as lions, cheetahs and leopards have become everyday residents.
The latest addition to abundant wildlife is a family of black rhinos!
More than 300 bird species are shared here. During the Namibian summer, the nature reserve becomes a birdwatcher's paradise, with thousands of species migrating to the wetlands created by the seasonal rains and ephemeral river systems.
The accommodation consists of five lodges. The lodges blur the line between lodge and camping. We call it glamping! You can be sure of a comfortable stay with all the lodge facilities. You can enjoy the views of a camp in the bush. There's also a campsite for travellers who want to make it alone!
