“It doesn’t get more exclusive than Ongava Lodge. The location is stunning with great views from its hilltop location, and it looks and feels a lot like a giant tree. Sumptuous rooms boast South African pine beams, armchairs and large wardrobes, vast showers and thatched canopies. The wildlife viewing opportunities are superb - even from the decking area in front of the restaurant where you're almost within touching distance of thirsty rhinos and lions.”
Perched atop a rocky outcrop overlooking a waterhole in the private Ongava Game Reserve is Ongava Lodge, the original luxury safari lodge near Etosha in Namibia.
Keeping it intimate, there are just 14 individually designed chalets built from rock, stone and thatch that blend in with the natural surroundings. These stylish and tranquil retreats feature wooden verandas, and they’re perfect for relaxing on as you watch game drinking at the waterhole below.
Offering impeccable service, superb cuisine and excellent facilities including a swimming pool, it’s great for honeymooners, couples and families seeking a secluded and memorable wilderness safari experience in a spectacular setting.
There are plenty of activities available including game drives, guided bush walks and bird watching. Tracking rhino on foot is an experience not to be missed. After a tiring day, cool off in the pool or sip a G&T at the bar as you admire the scenery.
