We only stayed here one night before moving to a camp inside the park and we really regretted that decision. This place was amazing. The food was delicious, drinks cold, and the view of the watering hole from the restaurant is a really nice touch. The rooms were very nice, beds comfortable, and the pool was excellent on a hot...

Very nice stay here. The day before we camped in the onguma tamboti campsite (good campsite!), the day after we had to experience the luxury in the bush camp. Just lovely. If I had known I would have booked a extra night here, just to relax before heading home again. Diner was just the best! I will never forget the... More

We only stayed one night but it was well-nigh perfect. To call it a bush camp is to underplay the luxury. Our 'tent' was fitted out with a luxury bath and shower, with another shower outside for a more vigorous, early-morning experience. Seated in a chair next to the pool, overlooking a waterhole with the sun setting behind and a... More

Couldn't fault a thing here. Our bungalow was lovely & set in beautiful gardens. The restaurant , dining room & lounge overlook the waterhole. The lounge is a lovely spot to sit with a nice glass of wine to watch the sun set. We didn't see any animals, but there was a lot of birdlife which we loved. Our meals... More

We stayed 2 nights here, and the food and service were excellent. The pool is good and the lodge and dining area are fabulous for eating, having a drink or a read and general chilling. It's right at the gates of Etosha, so we could self-drive round the eastern half of the park easily. The rooms are great - large,... More

We spent 3 wonderful nights at Onguma Bush Camp before going back to Windhoek. It’s located directly outside of Etosha, next to the Eastern entrance, and therefore it’s perfect if you want to spend some relaxing time after or before visiting Etosha (I’d recommend to go there after Etosha). We stayed in a Waterhole View Room, which means you actually... More

We had such a great time Onguma on our previous Namibia trip and we made sure to include it again. And, once again, we were very pleased with this choice. The upgrades and additions have been nicely incorporated to the existing camp. We were assigned a nice pool view chalet (#6). Spacious room, and well-appointed. Staff was wonderful. Food was... More

Our family group of 10 people stayed at Bush Camp for seven nights. The facilities were matched by the exceptional service by each and every staff member. A very special birthday was celebrated during our visit and catered in great style by Bush Camp. Our visit was greatly enhanced by watching a roadside leopard charge within a kilometre from Bush...

We came to this fantastic oasis just in the middle of our Namib desert trip. In short - it is really worth of coming! If you want a real exclusivity in everything - this is the place to be. Fantastic views, really exclusive safari, personal approach, a wonderful villa, most beautiful nature around. Not to mention a really delicious food... More
