Originally part of the greater Etosha Game Reserve, the Onguma Game Reserve is situated on the eastern side of Etosha, bordering the Fisher’s pan and a short drive from the von Lindequist Gate. In the local Herero language, Onguma means, ‘the place you don’t want to leave’.
Onguma Game Reserve has more than 34,000 hectares of protected land and wildlife. Lions are frequently seen and often heard. There is a healthy black rhino and leopard population and hyenas are also regularly spotted. More than 300 bird species can also be viewed at Onguma. During the Namibian summer months the reserve becomes a bird watcher’s paradise with thousands of species migrating to the wetlands created by the seasonal rains and ephemeral river systems.
The lounge and dining areas overlook a stunning waterhole that affords great opportunities to see nature at play around the clock. You don’t even have to leave the camp to see game – they come to you! What better place to enjoy a sundowner drink.
Onguma Bush Camp consists of 19 rooms, including some with a view of the waterhole and some suitable for families, with a children’s sleep area in the loft. All rooms have air conditioning and tea and coffee making facilities.
- Swimming pool
- Games area – children’s indoor games room and outside play area
