Little Ongava, nr Etosha National Park


Little Ongava is the most exclusive property in the Ongava Game Reserve offering unrivalled privacy with only three spacious and secluded bungalows.

Ongava is one of the largest private game reserves in Namibia, covering over 125 square miles. Only a limited number of visitors are welcomed at any one time, which keeps the experience small and personal. Ongava is situated along the southern boundary of Etosha National Park, a short drive from the Andersson Gate. Ongava is home to large concentrations of wildlife including lion, black and white rhino, elephant, giraffe, cheetah and several species of antelope including the rare black-faced impala.

Straddling the highest point of a rocky outcrop of dolomite, Little Ongava boasts soaring views out across mopane woodlands. The main area houses the restaurant and bar and has the best views of the nearby waterhole. Dinner is served under a romantic star or moonlit Namibian sky.

Each of the large thatched-roof bungalows at Little Ongava contain a lounge, outdoor shower with views of the waterhole and a deck with a sala and private infinity pool.
