Superb luxury camp

We stayed here a few years ago and enjoyed it. If anything, the service and food has improved still further, and the guiding was of a high quality for the pleasant sundowner drive around the property's own park (where we saw lion).

Beautiful rooms, excellent restaurant, and a delightful waterhole frequented by many antelope and giraffe.

All in all, a really good choice for exploring the eastern end of Etosha, located as it is a 20 minute drive from the eastern gate to the park.

Very comfortable, great waterhole

Another camp located just outside Etosha. Décor in the main area is luxurious with canopied roof and dining tables looking out over the large natural waterhole.

The tents too are lovely, each of them also looking out over the waterhole. We woke one morning to the sound of a herd of zebra crunching the gravel on their way to drink!

Food and service were excellent.

We self-drove, so didn't take part in camp activities. Driving round eastern Etosha / Fisher's Pan was easy from here, and gave us a chance to see a variety of animals and birds.

Superb

We stayed in the Tented Camp, which was luxurious and wonderful. Swimming in their little plunge pool while watching the animals at the waterhole.

We went on a morning walk with a guide, which was great fun, and well worth doing

Onguma Tented Camp review

Very good walking safari but mostly quiet waterhole. Slightly variable service, sometimes over-fussy.

A pity about our guide

The tents were the best in Namibia, with direct views to a lovely waterhole, which was regularly visited by a leopard at night.
We were offered a private dinner by the pool for our anniversary , a nice surprise :-) and the food was excellent.

A pity that all this was ruined by our game drive experience which was a complete disaster as the guide was rude and did not show any interest. He didn't even ask in advance about our sundowners drinks, which it is not a problem if you have more than one coke available for a group of four.

He managed to find a cheetah mother with her cubs, but off-road is not allowed on any occasion on their private game reserve, so we could not see them. We reported all this to the lodge.

Onguma Tented Camp

Beautiful tents, fantastic waterhole view from tent and restaurant. Did a sundowner drive - not many animals to see. Spent the morning at another waterhole in a hide - a few animals, relaxing way to spend a morning.

Onguma Tented Camp

Fantastic. Loved every minute.

Game Drives were expensive.

Although everything was fully paid for, our wine bill was expensive as they were not local wines - suggest that this is checked out before ordering.

Would recommend this lodge to anyone - brilliant.

Onguma Tented Camp review

We would struggle to fault Onguma and their staff.

We were well looked after during our time there, the food was some of the best we have eaten in Namibia and the tents contained everything that you could possibly need.

The staff were friendly and attentive whilst maintaining their professionalism through out. We will certainly go back and stay there again.

Tents but not as you have seen them before!

This was a surreal experience!

The level of attention to detail, the personal service, the level of luxury all deserve credit.

We drove ourselves in and out of Etosha and the reserve cannot offer what Etosha can so was limited in comparison but the sun-downer drive and morning walk were interesting and informative.
