Ongava is a contemporary safari lodge in the private Ongava Game Reserve along the southern border of Etosha National Park, one of Southern Africa’s best wildlife sanctuaries. The lodge has gained recognition for its conservation and pioneering research, and is able to offer guests the most exciting safari experiences in the region.
There are 14 lodges here, each with their own individual style but all offering a sense of privacy in luxurious surroundings. The lodges are built in the traditional style from local materials including brick, rock and thatch, blending seamlessly into the landscape allowing for a feeling of being totally at one with nature. The spacious communal areas reflect the colours and textures of the African bush, and are relaxing and comfortable spaces to enjoy a drink from the bar, a hearty meal, or simply to spot remarkable wildlife appearing from the bush and congregating right before your eyes – all of the locations feature views of the camp’s watering hole.
Each luxury chalet is stylishly furnished, with air conditioning and overhead fans, tea and coffee making facilities and a large ensuite with double basins and both indoor and outdoor showers.
Outside there’s a private viewing deck for searching out more wildlife. There’s a large swimming pool and activities include game drives in open 4x4 vehicles to search out lion, cheetah, elephant, hartesbeest, gemsbok and more. There’s also bird watching and nature walks as well as the chance to track black and white rhino on foot accompanied by experienced and knowledgeable guides.
