The Fort is unlike any other, the only one of its kind in Namibia. It is built in exactly the right spot to give guests probably one of the best sunset views in the whole of Namibia - overlooking the beautiful scarceness of the Etosha Pans, decorated only with its wild animals and hundreds of Camel Thorn trees.
Upon arriving at The Fort, you will be received by not only friendly staff, but also massive raw walls, stunning stone cladded features and a huge tower with views toward Etosha and Fisher's Pan. The Fort will surprise you at every corner; a classical African feel combined with a touch of Moroccan and Indian flavours, characterised by a selection of the most beautiful antique windows and doors.
Accommodation at Onguma - The Fort consists of 11 Bush Suites, 1 Sultan Suite and 1 Honeymoon Suite, all situated adjacent to the Main Fort extending on both sides to the south and the north.
