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.

Your room is a delightful thatched bungalow with cool, dark natural stone floors, thatched roof and a private balcony shaded by the spindly tamboti and terminalia trees characteristic of the greater Etosha area. Spotless en suite bathrooms have hot running water, flushing toilets and good showers. Air con and heating, coffee station and a huge bed complete the picture of comfort in the bush.

Of the four bungalow sizes and configurations available, the pick of the bunch would be the bush suites - they’re huge. With two rooms, connected by the en suite, they are great for families or two couples travelling together who don’t mind the inter-leading bathroom. For extra luxury and the same generous proportions the honeymoon suite, with delightful outdoor slipper bath and shower, is of course the best of the lot.

The main living area at Forest Camp is a large, open-sided thatched roof on gnarled poles. Thanks to the short rainy season, dining is mostly al fresco on the lodge deck surrounding a kidney-bean plunge pool. Onguma Private Game Reserve is a 34,000-hectare annexe to Etosha National Park with a hotline to the pans, waterholes and abundant plains game including rhino, lion, elephant, leopard, giraffe, zebra, oryx, many antelope and hundreds of bird species both resident and migrant.
