Perched on the top of a small kopje (rocky outcrop), overlooking the plains below, Ongava Lodge was the original 'luxury game lodge' near Etosha. It stands on the private Ongava Game Reserve, which borders the southern side of Etosha National Park near the Andersson Gate, south of Okaukuejo.
Our view of Ongava Lodge
Ongava Lodge remains a luxurious place to stay and the views from the lodge are quite spectacular. The game on the Ongava Reserve is generally excellent and as well as game drives on the reserve and into the national park, activities such as walking safaris – not allowed in Etosha itself - and night drives are also possible here. Though the guiding was disappointingly mediocre on our most recent stay, we have over the years found it to be really good.
