Modern Camp with excellent facilities

This was our third camp. Onguma is very modern in design but comfortable and well run. Our room was comfortable - and the infestation of bugs in our room was dealt with very efficiently. Saw lots of animals coming down to their waterhole. The food was good and the staff were friendly and helpful, particular mention for Thomas our waiter.

We had arrived following a long drive through Etosha National Park, so were too tired to do that evening activities. So we decided to use this as a quieter activity camp - and were particularly pleased with our trip to their Hide - which gave us excellent concealed view to get a good understanding of how animals come up to a waterhole and then move on.

Abraham our guide at the waterhole was a pleasant and friendly person with whom to spend a quieter couple of hours Lots of warthogs and their young, which we had not seen yet.

Luxurious stop at Onguma

This is high end Etosha.

We probably didn't get as much out of it as we could because of bad weather, but it was a great place to hide.

Onguma Tented Camp review

Fantastic place. It was pity we choose to stay 2 nights at Etosha south gate, so we only had a short evening to enjoy this camp.

I would recommended anybody that visits Etosha to spend at least 2 nights here.

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.
