Onguma is the only private reserve on the eastern side of Etosha National Park, offering a private game experience. Atmospheric safari glory à la Hemingway surrounds the guest of the Onguma Tented Camp. The pagoda-shaped tent landscape on wooden decks with hues of beiges and lush greens contrasts the rough wilderness. The pool, cosy seating areas, restaurant deck and all face the natural waterhole. Elegant tent bungalows, guarantee an overnight stay in close proximity to the wilderness.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.
Only seven very spacious tents on wooden decks are situated around an active waterhole. The spacious interior of the EnSuite tent bungalows pleases in modern design, futuristic bathtub as well as huge beds with draped mosquito nets.
Each tent is very private and offers inside- as well as outside showers. Under-canvas romance is no understatement.
