The best!

Everything about Ongava, the service, the camp itself, the food, the guides were exceptional an exceeded any expectations that we had. The staff was excellent attentive and helpful. Our son had picked up a bit of a stomach flu and the staff were ever so helpful and courteous in their attention.

The guides were first rate. the private lands for Safari beautiful and wonderful wildlife viewing. Excellent food every day at the central facility complete with it's own watering hole and wildlife.

Definitely a must stop and worthy of multi day stays. Our entire party would be happy to return without question.

Loved it!

A place to return to. The manager and his staff were very friendly and nothing too much a problem. The other guests were all very friendly and we had a wonderful time. The tents are just as they should be and you do really feel part of the bush.

The game drives were excellent and we were lucky enough to watch a pride of eighteen (18!!) lions watching zebra as breakfast. It was nice to contrast high end luxury of Little Ongava with more authentic bush experience of the Tented Camp.

Outstanding Ongava Tented Camp

This is a wonderful place to visit! All staff members were extremely knowledgeable and worked to make all aspects of our stay enjoyable. Game drives both in the private reserve and Etosha Park were wonderful.

Ongava Tented Camp Excellent

Outstanding in every way and in fact Wilderness were super helpful when Liz missed her connection, lost her bag etc. Particularly Costa at the desk in Windhoek airport who was a legend.

This is an extraordinary and amazingly special place. Emsie was our wonderful hostess and Rio was an excellent guide

Ongava Tented Camp review

We stayed at a few camps run by Wilderness Safaris, including this one. They were consistently well run, with good staff, facilities and services. We went on 3 game drives from Ongava Tented Camp and were thrilled to see lots of lions, elephants, all kinds of antelope, giraffes, zebras, and a few white rhinos.

We drove through Etosha on our way from Ongava to Onguma Camp. We really enjoyed our day and saw an amazing number of elephants. It you like watching animals close up, the waterholes in Etosha are wonderful. But we appreciated staying at lodges outside the park so we could go on evening drives.

Ongava Tented Camp review

Very much of a safari experience down to the armed escort taking us from our tent to dinner after sundown.

Personal, friendly and attentive staff across the board. Great viewing of rhinos and lions in this reserve including nightly visits by the rhinos to the waterhole.

Safari guides will take you to Etosha but it makes for a significantly longer drive. Excellent food and lively meals. Luxury tents.

Ongava Tented Camp review

The Ongava Tented Camp was very enjoyable because the water hole is so close to the coffee shop and lobby of the camp that it was so wonderful to watch the many animals drink and have a taste of the blocks of salt.

The Camp was specially enjoyable because the husband and wife managers, were so fun to talk with. The people involved in running the Camp were very helpful and cheerful.
