Ongava Game Reserve, Namibia
Little Ongava is perched on the crest of a hill in the private 30,000-hectare Ongava Game Reserve, which borders the Etosha National Park to the north. Its proximity to the Etosha National Park makes it ideal for exploring Namibia’s premier wildlife reserve.
With only 3 spacious, luxurious and private units, Little Ongava really does offer an intimate and exclusive experience for its guests. Each unit features its own plunge pool, a sala, and an en-suite bathroom with both indoor and outdoor showers and a bath with a magnificent view. The dining and lounge areas share the same wonderful views of the waterhole below and lend themselves to relaxed, stylish meals under thatch or African sky alike.
Activities at Little Ongava revolve around day and night wildlife-viewing drives, visiting hides that overlook waterholes and walks with experienced guides. A hide at the camp waterhole provides superb photographic opportunities. The Ongava Game Reserve features all the characteristic wildlife of the area, with both desert-adapted black and white rhino to be seen as well as lion.
Game drives and daytrips into the easily accessible Okaukuejo area of Etosha National Park are rewarding, with 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.
The Ongava Game Reserve is unique in that it is one of the few private game reserves in southern Africa where there is a chance of seeing 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.
