Onguma Dream Cruiser

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.

That’s right, the Onguma Dream Cruiser is a suite on wheels, a romantic night out beneath the stars somewhere in the private Onguma Reserve. It’s mobile so the spot is secret and secluded. You have the bush all to yourself.

Imagine camping a night in a rooftop tent. Now remove the tent and add a comfortable double bed with quality linens, sheltered by a canvas gazebo and draped by mosquito nets. No doors. No walls. Just endless views from your bed and the small deck setup for al fresco dining at sunset.

Built on two levels with your “suite” on top, the bottom level consists of a full bathroom with shower, flush toilet and a basin. The Onguma Dream Cruiser is camping gone glamorous. Well, it’s the idea of camping without actually camping and is rather a more luxurious sleepout option.

There’s always a ranger on call via radio if needed, but otherwise you’re on your own. You’ll enjoy a picnic-style meze food selection with pre-selected chilled drinks at sunset, then it’s a night under the starry Namibian sky and in the morning you’ll wake to hot coffee or tea with homemade rusks and a magnificent sunrise before returning to your Onguma lodge for a full breakfast.

The Onguma Dream Cruiser is booked as an add-on to your lodge stay at any of the Onguma properties and has to be booked in advance (or on arrival at the lodge direct, but best booked in advance to avoid disappointment). It’s at a surcharge fee. Worth every cent if you ask us. This is something you won’t get to do elsewhere in Namibia and we’re almost sure it’s unlikely you’ll get to experience it anywhere else in southern Africa or the world at large. OK, we might be reaching a little, but you certainly won’t get to experience the bush like this unless you are actually camping yet here you have added luxurious comforts, you don’t have to set up camp and as night falls you’re surrounded by the sounds of the wilderness so close on the eastern edge of Etosha National Park.

There really are no words for this romantic adventure. It’s one you have to take our word for and come experience it for yourself. It’s special.
