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, way down below. You are really quite high up here, perched on top of an impressive hill. Your view out over the bush below is spectacular as is everything else about this private lodge.
Your choice of dining venues are in the privacy of your own suite, under the stars or in the cosy thatched main lodge area. It is stylish and really rather refined in its rustic chic feel. There is also a lounge and game viewing deck, which again takes in the beauty of the pristine reserve.
This is easily one of the most intimate luxurious options for Etosha National Park. There really is nothing else that measures exactly to its claim to fame. You have a private guide and vehicle to enjoy activities on the private Ongava Reserve and into Etosha, whichever you decide. It's a wildlife extravaganza and a deluxe stay that will leave you bewildered on both fronts.
Bird watching; day and night game drives; game drives in Etosha and Ongava reserve; game walks; white and black rhino tracking; white rhino and elephant approaching; full day excursions to Etosha; visit the Ongava Research Centre
In the vein of exclusivity, the camp has a private game guide and a dedicated safari vehicle just for you. 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, elephant, 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.
