Onguma, as the only private reserve in the east of the Etosha National Park, offers with its Bush Camp an attractive accommodation directly at the border of the National Park for the demanding yet price-conscious visitor. Onguma Bush Camp also offers families with children of all ages a safe and age-appropriate place to stay on fenced grounds. At the huge waterhole, situated directly in front of the restaurant or on safari trips in the reserve, you can discover the rich animal kingdom. The Onkolo Hide is only a few minutes away.More Info Video
It was a South African family of entrepreneurs who became aware of the farm Onguma in the east of the Etosha National Park. Fritz Vorster has been managing Onguma as a private reserve since the turn of the millennium in cooperation with his family and experienced lodge operators from Namibia. The reserve is dedicated to nature and animal protection and the surrounding community is integrated into various projects. The different lodges have become an integral part of a Namibian tour.
Part of Onguma was set aside and offering the adjacent Oshivelo community members jobs by being part of a greater cause. With the projects being run here, approximately 250 jobs have been created. Some of these projects include planting a variety of vegetables for lodge and camp use as well as supplying larger parts of Namibia with fresh vegetables.
Furthermore, an active anti-poaching program has been implemented recently to help protect the black and white rhino population on Onguma.
A total of 16 mostly detached accommodations, several of which are specially designed to meet the needs of families with children, give Onguma Bush Camp the character of a small village. All rooms are equipped with separate bathrooms, comfortable and neat furnishings, and some family rooms are originally designed as loft rooms. In the centre of the camp, there is a lounge with a restaurant and a large viewing deck, which reaches directly to a huge waterhole that attracts game all day long. The large pool offers refreshment and fun for the whole family.
