Onguma Tented Camp
Onguma Tented Camp is an elegant and stylish safari lodge at odds with the scrubby African bush that envelops it.
The seven enormous tented suites fan out around a waterhole and the colours inside are an austere reflection of the natural surrounds: charcoal black, storm-cloud grey, fern green, linen white, natural stone... And they are comfortable with cotton draping, indoor and outdoor showers, separate toilets, twin stone basins and a private sitting area and verandah.
The main lodge has a pool and deck overlooking the waterhole. The lounge and dining area - done in the same style and with equal measure of elegance - is beneath stretched canvas with open sides barely keeping the encroaching bush at bay.
Seven luxury tents overlooking a waterhole; private patio; indoor and outdoor showers; free-standing bath; sitting area; lounge, bar and dining area overlooking the waterhole; swimming pool
Game drives; waterhole; full day excursions into Etosha and on the private reserve
The lodge is inside an excellent private reserve that shares its western boundary with Etosha National Park. Four of the fabled big five - lion, leopard, rhino, and elephant - roam the land and there are many species of plains game and birds to be seen on your daily game drives. The eastern gate into Etosha is also close by so you can add an extra game viewing dimension to your luxury safari.
