Little Ongava

Etosha National Park

Designed for privacy, luxury and intimacy with the land, Little Ongava is arguably Namibia’s most luxurious accommodation, with pristine views across the Ongava plains.

Little Ongava is perched on the crest of a hill commanding magnificent vistas of the plains stretching for miles to the horizon, offering an extraordinary experience as the focal point of an Etosha journey.

This intimate camp has only three spacious suites, each with its plunge pool, en-suite bathroom, “sala”, and outdoor shower. The lounge and dining areas have beautiful views of a productive waterhole below the camp, the open deck allowing for relaxed, stylish dining under the African sky.

Guests at Little Ongava share a dedicated guide and vehicle, ensuring the best possible nature experience at one of Africa’s great wildlife destinations. Day and night wildlife-viewing drives, visiting hides overlooking waterholes, walks and white rhino approaching with experienced guides can all be enjoyed exclusively on this reserve. Game drives and day trips to nearby Etosha National Park are also offered.

Why we recommend Little Ongava

“Set on a hilltop with lovely views over the private Ongava Game Reserve, Little Ongava is the more private, luxurious and intimate sister camp to Ongava so it’s a great option for those looking for a safari experience with the utmost comfort. It’s unique in that it’s one of the few private game reserves in southern Africa where there’s 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.”
