Living the dream...

This was probably my favourite of the places we stayed for a variety of reasons - the setting with it's stunning interiors overlooking a waterhole which provided constant entertainment.

The restaurant and food also overlooking the waterhole was perfect with amazing service and fantastic food. The pool. Our room was so comfy with little extras like a bottle of water at night. But most of all the staff - so friendly and attentive - I felt so relaxed and happy here.

We also did an evening drive and saw plenty of animals which made it a fantastic all rounder - I'd happily go back here and spend a week or longer!

Beautiful but smoking allowed in best spot

With its pretty waterhole and the green beautiful trees, Onguma is a welcome relief from the dryness and dust of Etosha.

The dining room/ lounge area is beautiful and the rooms are comfortable.

The only negative is that smoking is allowed in the best spot (the lounge area just above the waterhole).

Onguma Bush Camp review

Onguma was a gem - quiet, serene and had the cleanest swimming pool, Superb dining area that overlooked the waterhole, as well as comfy seating area.

We were disappointed that we could not self drive around the Onguma private reserve and that they no longer offered a night drive. The day walk led by David was great - informative and a chance to walk in the area. We were late back for breakfast, but the staff were waiting for us and couldn't do more for us.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here.

Onguma Bush Camp

After our very ordinary accommodation at Okaukuejo we moved to near heaven . What a lovely place . Pleasant staff comfortable rondavels ,and in spite of the drought restful green surroundings. and most importantly a great shop with some interesting different curios. Joking about the great importance of the shop but was nice to see some different things.

Accommodation very clean and well serviced . The food was really nice and plentiful with a wonderful waiter Emil. What a joy he was .

I would definitely recommend this Camp for value for money .

Ongumu

This place was pure luxury! Great service in the restaurant and amazing food. the rooms were opulent! I would come back here and stay for a week.

The tour guides were so wonderful. Armstrong extended our tour well past his quitting time in an attempt to find us some animals.

I wish we had arrived here earlier and taken their tours into Etosha instead of driving around on our own,

Great experience at Onguma Bush Camp

We loved our private waterhole. It seemed like this was the appetizer to Etosha National Park. We saw one elephant at the waterhole.

The next morning, one of the staff members gently knocked on our door at 7 am to let us know that there was a lioness walking in front of our rooms to the waterhole. That was the only lion we saw on our trip.

The wait staff, specifically, Edwil, was very attentive and I'll be forever grateful for his knock on our door to come out and see the lion!

Onguma Bush Camp review

The property was really great.

The watering hole in the dining area was the best I had seen.

The kids really enjoyed the loft rooms. The rooms were very, very nice and comfortable.
They did a great job of accommodating requests for kid-friendly food options.

Onguma Bush Camp review

We were disappointed that Onguma was, effectively, some distance (in time, at least) outside of the Etosha National Park. The camp was well situated directly overlooking a waterhole that was visited by a large number of animals throughout the day.

However, after Okonkjima the game drives seemed average at best. We were quite disappointed with the morning walk - we seemed to learn a lot about termites - and saw nothing reasonably close or special.

We saw most when we were relaxing and looking out over the waterhole and we also enjoyed relaxing at the swimming pool.

Absolutely exemplary in all aspects

Onguma was the highlight of the accomodation on our trip. The grounds and buildings are extremely pleasant and attractive, the pool is great, and the setting of the restaurant and bar above the water hole is perfect.

We are keen animal and bird-spotters, and we saw several species around that small area that we never saw in the rest of our trip!

Service was extremely polite, professional and unobtrusive. The food was tasty, well-proportioned, and vegetarians were well catered for. We were quite sad to leave Onguma after only one night!
