Ongava Game Reserve, Namibia
This luxury safari camp is nestled in a hidden valley overlooking a busy watering hole along the southern boundary of Namibia’s Etosha National Park, in the privately owned Ongava Game Reserve. Built from stone, canvas and thatch, Ongava Tented Camp has a traditional bush camp feel.
Offering a homely atmosphere, superb game viewing and excellent facilities including a swimming pool, this charming camp will appeal to adventurous couples seeking an intimate and authentic wilderness safari experience in luxurious seclusion.
Ongava Tented Camp features eight spacious and comfortably furnished Meru-style tents with uninterrupted views of the bush and watering hole. Each tent features a delightful wooden verandah and outdoor shower with an impressive view.
As well as day and night game drives, you can enjoy guided walks, bird watching and spending time in one of the hides. Ongava has a thriving black and white rhino population and tracking them on foot is an experience not to be missed. After a tiring day, cool off in the pool as you admire the views.
Lightfoot Travel provides tailor-made itineraries that include daily tours and excursions, restaurant recommendations and bookings, and can incorporate Etosha into a greater Namibia and African holiday.
