Ongava Tented Camp

Location
Etosha National Park, Namibia

Ongava Tented Camp, built of stone, canvas and thatch, accommodates 16 guests in eight large Meru-style tents, furnished in a palette of natural earth tones in perfect harmony with the surrounding environment. All tents have en suite facilities, open-air showers and private verandas. The family unit sleeps four. Activities at this comfortable camp typically take place around the common area with its relaxing bar and swimming pool fronting a much-frequented waterhole.

Ongava is ideally located near Etosha National Park, Namibia's premier wildlife destination. Nearly the size of Switzerland, Etosha is 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. Yet, while Ongava's proximity to Etosha allows for game drives to see a plethora of wildlife in the national park, it has the advantage of being located on the private Ongava Game Reserve, equally rich in wildlife though without tourist crowds. The Ongava reserve holds one of the largest rhino custodianships and is one of the few private game reserves where visitors may see both black and white rhino.

Other species guests are likely to see include elephant, lion, leopard, cheetah, giraffe, zebra, wildebeest, springbok, gemsbok, kudu and the diminutive Damara dik-dik. Birdlife is prolific, with ostrich and local specials including short-toed rock thrush, Hartlaub’s francolin, Rüppell’s parrot, white-tailed shrike and chestnut weaver. In addition to wildlife drives, activities include guided walks and viewing wildlife from hides, neither of which is offered in the national park.
