Hotel Overview


Ongava Game Reserve, bordering Etosha National Park.

Rooms at Ongava Tented Camp

Carefully constructed using natural stone, canvas and thatch, the eight luxury Meru-style tents offer en-suite facilities, open-air showers and private wooden verandas. Shower against the rugged backdrop and drink in the activity of the waterhole from your very own bedroom.

Food and Facilities

Dining is a communal affair at Ongava Camp, where guests and the management all share hearty Namibian dishes together at one long table. Allow plenty of time to relax in the main area, where the bar and swimming pool peer over the breathtaking waterhole. Here you can enjoy a long drink among the zebra, rhino or springbok, or cosy up around the campfire after dark.

Activities at Ongava Tented Camp

You’ll spend your days on game drives in Ongava Game Reserve - one of the few places in Namibia that homes both the black and the white rhino. Alternatively, head slightly further afield to Etosha National Park, roughly one hour from the camp, where sightings of lion, elephant, gemsbok, springbok and red hartebeest are possible. Guided walks and bird watching are also fantastic in the area.
