Quite simply - magnificent !

The suite of rooms were the most spacious & luxurious we have stayed in, the setting was magnificent & in keeping with the spectacular surroundings, the activities were varied & interesting, led by knowledgeable & enthusiastic staff.

Good conversations with Michael who is clearly passionate about the environment & what he does. Caroline, very friendly & efficient at the lodge.

Viewpoint over the waterhole

Franco is the best guide we have ever had in Africa; his breadth of knowledge is exceptional for a young man - he made our stay a pleasure. Michael was an extremely attentive host. His wine list is worth investigating. The portions at both lunch and dinner were enormous (that's Namibia, we were told).

We made two visits to the waterhole at Okaukuejo and were stunned by the number and variety of animals and birds - hundreds of zebra etc in the morning, and around 50 elephants later on.

Little Ongava review

The rooms and facilities are probably the best, or very near, you can get in Namibia, or maybe in the world, but of course for a price. Rhinos are easy to see in their private reserve, which may be not the case if you go just to the National Park, due to the restrictions. We visited in the dry season, the rainy season may be not so good.

Little Ongava review

The lodge itself is excellent and our room was fabulously appointed with a great view over the valley. However if we were visiting again we would stay nearer/in Etosha - as it's quite a drive to get the The Pan from Little Ongava and in some respects we would have preferred to explore Etosha in our our vehicle at that provides more flexibility on what you want to visit and the time you spend there.

The game drive on Ongava's private reserve was not at all interesting on the day we went.
