A welcome restover after a long day in Etosha. Another very good establishment which does exactly what it says on the tin.

Onguma Bush Camp review

It may have been the time in our holiday when we arrived here, but Onguma was like heaven on earth. A warm welcome, shown to our rooms and how to operate everything. A wonderful swimming pool and loungers and someone to come and serve drinks. The food and service were excellent. Wished we could have stayed another day.

There were a wide variety of wilds birds flying around the grounds, and there is a small waterhole just outside the fenced area where we saw many impala and zebra as we ate breakfast.

We had a family room for the 2 of us. A private lounge area, a large bedroom, and a bathroom with a bath. Just wonderful.

Onguma Bush Camp review

We were in Rondavel No 3 which was lovely.

There was no game at the water hole other than impala.

We cannot comment on the activities as we drove ourselves around Etosha.

The food was excellent apart from the desserts at dinner, which could have come out of a packet from Iceland.
We thought this accommodation was very good value.

Onguma Bush Camp review

Another great lodge in a great location just outside the eastern entrance gate to Etosha. Wonderful food and staff.

Went on a night bush drive through their own game reserve with a great guide called Charles who had a great sense of humour and was a brilliant spotter seeing a small 3" owlet from 50 yards in the beam of his torch as we were driving. He was really disappointed that we saw no cats or rhino but he was entertaining, informative and found a number of smaller mammals for us including a bushbaby which was delightful.

He also gave us good advise on where the best places in Etosha were to see elephants and Lions and also what time of the day to visit these locations. We saw both elephant and lion at the places and times he suggested.

Good choice for East Etosha

Room simple but very adequate,nice grounds and buildings and good food.Staff friendly and attentive.

Game drives a bit limited which may improve if,and when more land becomes available. A good base from which to explore East Etosha. Would recommend

Very good base to visit Etosha

Very comfortable, welcoming place in an excellent location on the edge of Etosha. The accommodation must have been upgraded since the Bradt Guide Book description was written, and it exceeded our expectations. Very good food.

Did not participate in any activities as we were only there for one night

Onguma Bush Camp review

Our rondel was very cosy, but in need of some refurbishment - particularly the bathroom.

The bar and lounge area more than made up for this, as did the resurant and the food. The staff were very friendly. Also the pool and garden area were attractive, unfortuately we didn't see any game at the waterhole as the rains had just started.

A very pleasant easygoing camp

A very agreeable place to stay and convenient for Etosha Park. There is a raised seating area with comfortable seats where you can sit with a gin to look over the waterhole. The reception area also has a useful shop with postcards and stamps, which seemed to be in short supply up to this point. Julia, the charming receptionist also offered to post my cards for me, for which the lodge went up further in my estimation.

The food was good and the waiters amiable and obliging.

We felt very welcome here.
