Onguma – Tented Camp



A stone’s throw away from a frequented pan in the Etosha National Park, Onguma’s Tented Camp is a place you’ll be hard-pressed to leave at the end of your stay.

Lodge and Accommodation

Billowing fabric wafts down from the ceilings of each one of the 7 exquisite tents and main communal areas. Great care has been taken to harness colour that not only blend with the environment but enhance its beauty. Everything from the charcoal of stone to the studded creams of wooden beams, fused with a hint of sharp greens, creates the essence of extravagant luxury that the camp is famous for.

After a long-days game viewing, sit out on your private deck, sipping on a refreshing drink or reading a good book. As the night draws closer, watch the animals flock to the watering hole to celebrate the coolness of the day. No matter where you are, the bush is filled with a plethora of moments you’ll always cherish. This, along with the contemporary design and chic comforts of the camp will make you second guess your decision to leave this paradise.

Activities and Wildlife

With more than 300 species of birdlife within its borders, innumerable game and the Big 5 animals of Africa, Onguma provides the experience you’ve been waiting for. Choose to experience the morning safaris, where you’ll traverse vast stretches of different biomes, where the game of the park regularly pass on their morning errands.

The sundowner drive will sate your thirst as the sun goes down. Here, as night approaches, the animals flourish into activity and you treble your chances of making that prized sighting. Expert guides and trackers take you out on bush walks, where you’ll learn where to look for spoor and other markings, seeing how the landscape paints a picture of each mammal that has passed through its channels.

If you’re patient, a visit to the Onkolo Hide will provide you with ample viewings of birdlife and mammals alike, as they drink from the pan’s cool waters, nourishing themselves. Private game drives are another option available, where you customise the trips to your liking. You dictate the hours you’re out and the direction you’d like to explore.
