Little Ongava Lodge
With a maximum of six guests Little Ongava is indeed little. There is nothing little about the scale of luxury or the footprint of the suites, however.
Little Ongava is an addition to the exclusive and luxurious Ongava Lodge that goes a stride or two further in every department - giraffe strides that is.
The lodge has three chalets of pachidermal proportions. Panoramic French doors add a large verandah to your already sizeable bedroom and lounge. Your private sala, plunge pool and en suite bathroom look out over the waterhole.
Your choice of dining venues are in the privacy of your own suite, under the stars or in the cosy thatched lodge. The main living area is stylish and really rather refined and it has a pool, lounge and game viewing deck.
Three large suites facing a waterhole; private plunge pools; en suite bathrooms; sala; outdoor shower; sitting room with viewing deck; air conditioned; open-air dining area; swimming pool; game viewing deck; lounge and bar; curio shop; airstrip
Bird watching; day and night game drives; game drives in Etosha and Ongava reserve; game walks; white rhino tracking; full day excursions to Etosha
In the vein of exclusivity, the camp has a private game guide and a dedicated safari vehicle. Activities include game drives into Etosha and walks and safaris in the private reserve, which also has several hides and waterholes.
Along with the predators and large herbivores look out for Namibian specialities: white and black rhino, gemsbok, springbok, damara dik-dik and the black-faced impala. Birding is excellent with raptors in abundance and endemics including short-toed rockthrush, Hartlaub's francolin, rockrunner,Rüppell's parrot, white-tailed shrike and chestnut weaver.
