Onguma Game Reserve is one of Namibia's hidden treasures. With over 84,000 acres of protected area to explore and a myriad of luxurious safari accommodations, Onguma brings Etosha's majesty into perfect focus.
Onguma Game Reserve is located in the eastern region of Etosha National Park, neighboring Fisher’s Pan and sheltering some 30 different species of plains wildlife. Find zebra, impala, giraffe, kudu, and oryx on game drives through the region, and perhaps even find cheetah, leopard, and lion in pursuit. Birding enthusiasts will be kept busy too, watching the trees and the skies for some of the 300 bird species that have been sighted within the reserve.
Onguma means “the place you don’t want to leave” in the Heroro language, and the varied options in the reserve succeed in completely enveloping visitors in this magical place. Guests have a choice of a range of accommodations from safari campsites to sprawling tented suites. Ker & Downey clients prefer these select options when on safari at Onguma Game Reserve.
Onguma Bush Camp
Families can safari together with ease at Onguma Bush Camp. A selection of 16 rooms, some of them including loft sleeping spaces, were designed especially for children and families. Shared lounge and dining areas have an excellent view of the waterhole in camp, and a swimming pool and games room provide further recreation between game drives.
Onguma Tented Camp
Elegantly designed to emulate the natural surroundings of the reserve, seven luxury tents elevate the safari experience. Suede and linen mingle with stone and steel in the modern interiors to craft the perfect balance of contemporary design and safari styling. Onguma Tented Camp is open to children over the age of 12.
Onguma Tree Top
Just four rooms are on offer at Onguma Tree Top. Composed of thatch and canvas, the suites are raised on wooden stilts, positioning guests within the surrounding trees for a view from the tree tops, as the name suggests. This tree house complex overlooks one of the very best watering holes in the reserve, delighting guests with lovely vistas across the bush as the resident game meanders by for a drink. Onguma Tree Top may be booked exclusively by families or small groups of travelers.
Onguma – The Fort
A commanding view of sunset is just one of the highlights at The Fort. Anchored by the Main Fort and its dominating tower, 11 suites and an opulent honeymoon suite are connected by wooden decking and positioned at a comfortable distance from each other to keep the ultimate privacy and exclusivity. Stunning antique doors and windows contrast with the unfinished stone to create a space distinct from its neighbors, imbued with charming Moroccan and Indian flair. The single Sultan Suite enjoys a prominent place in the Main Tower, complete with a private viewing deck and lounge with satellite television.
Each space operates as its own retreat within the reserve, including dining areas, swimming pools, and relaxing lounges. Game drives and bush walks through Onguma Game Reserve and Etosha National Park are led by a team of skilled guides who help guests discover the many wonders of the region.Request Information
