Onguma The Fort
With a range of desert-adapted architectural styles, The Fort in Onguma Game Reserve is an award-winning Namibian Safari Lodge near Etosha National Park.
The Fort at Onguma was refurbished and re-launched in 2008 to instant international acclaim. Taking the new safari brief to the edge of conception, South African architects Slee incorporated natural materials and dramatic simplicity to create one of the most striking safari lodges in Namibia.
Walls are untreated and partially clad in stone, the interiors are uncluttered and furnished with great care and all about are vast windows and doors that frame the wilderness and invite the cool air inside.
Attention to detail goes way beyond sublime décor and remarkable design. The service and standards match international levels and the food, wine, staff and management as one complement the arresting grandeur of The Fort at Onguma.
And yet, not despite but perhaps because of the exceptional safari lodge and accommodation, the game viewing and wilderness experience remains the leading lady of this magnificent show.
Full board accommodation; 12 suites overlooking Fischer's Pan in Etosha National Park; en suite bathrooms with two showers (one outdoors); private deck; air cooling; wine cellar; dining area and lounge; swimming pool and game viewing tower.
Guided nature walks and game drives in Onguma Private Reserve; private guided Etosha safaris; game viewing tower.
The Fort is in a private reserve 20,000ha in extent and sharing a border with Etosha National Park overlooking the shimmering expanse of Fischer's Pan. Most of Etosha's wildlife species pass through the private reserve and daily guided safaris in Etosha Park will take you to any that don't.
