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 her beauty and diversity.
The reserve has a waterhole that is very popular with the animals and a lodge, The Bush Camp, that has a stunning view of the waterhole from its deck.
The lodge was built to make the most of the surroundings an is perfect for appreciating nature. See one of Namibia's best-kept secrets!
You can spot many of the plains game coming to the Onguma water hole. These include kudu, giraffe, eland, oryx, hartebeest, zebra and impala. Big cats such as lion, cheetah and leopard have become everyday residents of the area.
The latest addition to the already abundant wildlife is a family of black rhinos!
More than 300 bird species are shared here. During the Namibian summer months, 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 facilities of a lodge. You can enjoy the views of a camp in the bush. There's also an campsite for travelers who want to make it on their own!
