Onguma welcomes Camp Kala

This November Onguma welcomes a new flagship to the already magnificent collection. First guests have already had the pleasure of enjoying Camp Kala and their reaction was a big wow and Onguma received excellent feedback!

The new jewel in the Onguma crown is located on the site of the previous Tree Top Camp, right next to a very active waterhole. Hence guests can enjoy their safari right from their private veranda sipping an ice cold drink. Onguma Nature Reserve has more than 34 000 hectares of protected land in which wildlife roams freely. Here guests will have the opportunity to experience Africa in all its beauty and diversity.

Nick Plewman Architects were the very talented team who designed the lodge in proud co-operation  with Fox Browne Creative Interior Designers. The immaculate and creative interior creates exclusivity, top luxury, and a very unique style. In the eyes of Fritz Vorster, Managing Director of Onguma, space, privacy and tranquility in harmony with the overall experience are key to the Onguma understanding of understated luxury and the unique guest experience for which Onguma is renowned for.

Camp Kala is elevated on wooden decks which provides panorama views across the waterhole and surrounding landscape. A central tower is mud plastered and resembles a termite mound blending perfectly into the surrounding nature and setting the tone for creative architecture and style.

The kitchen is open plan and there is an all-day pantry available making you feel right at home to help yourself whenever the need arises. In addition, there is also a fully equipped gym, spa room, yoga deck as well as a ground level hide where photographers can spend hours capturing the perfect wildlife shot.

It doesn’t get more exclusive than this, with only 4 suites a perfect invite to book exclusively, but most certainly guests are also welcome on an FIT basis. Each suite has uninterrupted views across the waterhole. Open-plan architecture and generosity in space are maintained inside the chalets as well as on the private decks. A wood fired tub for those chilly romantic nights and a plunge pool to cool off on very hot days are awating guests on the wooden verandas. Mere meters away guests will find their own private sala and day bed for day time chilling or sleeping under the stars.

Each guests stay is completely tailored to their needs and activities are based on the Onguma Reserve. Additional activities off the reserve can be arranged.

At present there is an opening special which is valid until the end of December 2022.
