Little Ongava

Location
Etosha National Park, Namibia

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, while the summer months’ sporadic rainfall produces a profusion of life.

A warm welcome awaits at this intimate and exclusive lodge, with unrivalled privacy in just three spacious and luxurious units, each with its own plunge pool, sala (veranda), en-suite bathroom -- with a view -- and indoor and outdoor shower. The dining and lounge areas also have wonderful views of the waterhole below the camp, and guests may enjoy delicious meals under the African sky or under thatch.

The Ongava Game Reserve is situated on the southern boundary of Etosha National Park, and large game such as elephant and lion are able to move between the park and the private reserve. Exclusive activities on the reserve include day and night wildlife drives, visits to hides that overlook waterholes, and walks with experienced guides. Game drives and daytrips into the easily accessible Okaukuejo area of Etosha National Park are rewarding, with frequent sightings of lion, elephant, gemsbok, springbok, red hartebeest, and white and black rhino. Guests at Little Ongava share a dedicated guide and Land Rover, ensuring the best possible nature experience at one of Africa's great wildlife destinations. A hide at the camp waterhole provides superb photographic opportunities. At Ongava the characteristic wildlife of the area is present, with both desert-adapted black and white rhino, and lion, present.

A highlight of Ongava is that it is one of the few private game reserves in southern Africa where there is a chance to see both black and white rhino. For those who enjoy close wildlife encounters, tracking white rhino on foot with a guide is a highlight not to be missed.
