Ongava Lodge


Safari Highlights

Ongava Lodge is in the private Ongava Game Reserve that borders the Etosha National Park in northern Namibia.

Bush Chic

Constructed on the side of a small hill overlooking the reserve, Ongava offers sweeping views over the plains to the south of Etosha National Park. 14 rooms, attractively built out of brick, rock and thatch, boast air-conditioning and glass-fronted doors leading onto private verandahs. Meals are either served under thatch or on the dining deck under the stars.

A Great Base to Explore From

Ongava Lodge overlooks its own private water hole, and has its own hide, which improves the game viewing experience.  Being on its own private game reserve with just two other lodges for company gives Ongava Lodge a certain amount of freedom, with game walks and sundowners a favourite. The main Etosha Park to the north is easily accessible, and full or half day game drives there are possible.
