Please note: Our review of this property has not yet been added. Watch this space. We're working on it.

As a tailor-made tour operator, we often have to get creative when designing your perfect itinerary.

For example, your travel consultant might add this property to your itinerary if:

Location is a significant factor
It offers a unique feature that will enhance your experience
This is a last-minute booking and room availability is limited
Cost is a factor and you'd rather splash out on another part of your trip
This is a newly opened or refurbished property that we have not inspected yet

When designing your custom itinerary we have much to consider not least of which is the value proposition of every product and service included in your quote. In all cases we strive to give you the best experience possible within your budget so please feel free to ask your travel consultant to share their reasons for including this property in your itinerary.

Ongava Tented Camp offers well-appointed safari accommodation with a light footprint in the exclusive 30,000ha Ongava Reserve. Built with minimal impact on the land, Ongava Tented Camp fronts a busy waterhole and ranks among Namibia's best safari lodges.

The camp has seven tented suites and one family unit. The suites are built on wooden decks with doorway entrances, en suite bathrooms, open-air showers and private verandas looking out into the great African wilderness.

The main lodge is a homely thatch, timber and stone construction that houses the lounge, dining area, bar, large open veranda and shaded plunge pool. The untended bush encroaching into the camp gives it an earthy, rustic back-to-nature appeal.
