ONGAVA GAME RESERVE, ADJACENT TO ETOSHA NATIONAL PARK – PRESTIGE
Little Ongava is one of Namibia’s most exclusive private game lodges and is situated on 75,000 acres of private land bordering the southern boundary of the Etosha National Park, Namibia’s premier wildlife sanctuary. A kaleidoscope of Africa wildlife can be seen at many of the water holes in the Park and the Reserve has resident White and Black rhino plus a healthy predator population.
A dedicated guide ensures the optimum nature experience at one of Africa’s great wilderness destinations. This small exclusive thatched camp nestles on the crest of a hill with wonderful views onto the plains below and to a water hole in the front of the camp which draws game and bird life into the area.
Enjoy sumptuous and intimate privacy in only three spacious suites, each with a contemporary African feel and high beamed ceilings, dark wood floors, local textiles and huge floor-to-ceiling windows, particularly apt for watching game as you wallow in the bath! Each suite has a private plunge pool, opulent bathroom, private sundeck and outdoor shower with views of the waterhole. Raised wooden walkways lead from the suites to the main dining/bar area.
Little Ongava’s main area lends itself to relaxed, stylish dining where meals are eaten communally in the living area, which is a big, comfortable space with numerous sofas for lounging on, a good selection of South African wines, and superb views of the floodlit watering hole.
Typically, morning activities are spent game viewing in Etosha whilst afternoons, evening drives and walks are done on Ongava. Tracking rhino on foot is a highlight at the lodge and the reserve is host to a wide variety of game including elephant, lion, leopard, black rhino, springbok, gemsbok and hartebeest. Birdlife around waterholes close to Little Ongava is also good with ostrich, pygmy falcon and many raptors in abundance.
