Ongava Lodge is situated on a small hill in the private Ongava Game Reserve on the southern boundary of the Etosha National Park in northern Namibia. The setting allows guests panoramic and distant views over the bush as well as intimate views of the water hole, and its visitors, nestled at the base of the hill.
The accommodation at Ongava Lodge comprises thirteen chalets and one family room, all attractively built out of brick, rock and thatch. Each chalet has an en-suite bathroom with shower and double hand basins. Air-conditioning and overhead fans keep guests cool in hotter months of the year (November to March), whilst mosquito netting is fitted to the windows. The rooms have glass-fronted doors which lead out onto a private and covered veranda, overlooking the bush.
The guest areas of Ongava consist of the main lounge, bar and dining areas with meals either served in the main dining area under thatch or on the dining deck under the stars, overlooking the water hole.
Etosha National Park, Namibia’s premier wildlife destination, is one of Africa’s largest game reserves and home to large herds of wildlife that stream into the waterholes during the dry months, and offers breathtaking vistas of the seemingly endless salt flats.
Activities at Ongava Lodge revolve around day and night drives in open top 4×4 safari vehicles, visiting hides that overlook waterholes and walks with experienced guides. A hide at the camp waterhole provides superb photographic opportunities. The Ongava Game Reserve features all the characteristic wildlife of the area, with both desert-adapted black and white rhino as well as lion and a host of plains game.
