Ongava Tented Camp is immersed in the African Mopani bush. This camp is a perfect extension of the natural landscape of the Ongava Game Reserve. Ongava Tented Camp offers a classic safari-style feel and is tucked in a hidden valley at the foot of a dolomite hill in Ongava Game Reserve bordering Etosha National Park.
The camp boasts eight large comfortable Meru-style tents which all have en-suite facilities, open-air showers and private verandas. The family unit sleeps four, perfect for two adults and 2 kiddies. The main area, built of stone, canvas and thatch, fronts onto a much-frequented waterhole; watching the wildlife coming to drink from here or from the swimming pool is a favourite pastime.
Ongava’s proximity to Etosha allows for game drives in the Etosha National Park and on the Ongava Reserve itself. Other possibilities include guided walks, birding and visiting hides. Ongava holds one of the largest rhino custodianships for the Namibian government in the country and is one of the few private game reserves in southern Africa where guests can see both black and white rhinos.
In 1991, several families invested in the future by turning four unproductive cattle ranches in Northern Namibia into a prolific 30,000-hectare private game reserve that is now a haven to large concentrations of wildlife.
Where lions were once shot on sight, Ongava is now home to several prides that are the hunters, not the hunted. Rhino populations are not only protected, they are understood, with a major genetics study revealing paternity and guiding decisions that encourage the prosperity of the species.
Sharing a common boundary with the Etosha National Park, Ongava is considered one of the finest private game reserves in the region, enjoying global recognition for exceptional conservation, ground-breaking research and exciting safari adventures.
Ongava is one of the largest private game reserves in Namibia, with over 125 square miles to explore. Climb into an open vehicle for game drives on Ongava and into neighbouring Etosha National Park to view the astonishing variety of life found in this spectacular environment.
Lions, black and white rhinos, elephants, giraffe and several stunning species of antelope, including rare black-faced impala & Damara dik-dik, are at home on the reserve. Our experienced guides share with their guests an intimate knowledge of the wildlife and the land that is part of their natural heritage.
Rhino approaching on foot in the company of your trained guides is a part of our quintessential African adventure. Nature walks, photographic hides, lounging by the pool, or relaxing on your private deck are all wonderful ways to enjoy and reflect on your journey of a lifetime.
