The rooms are great and clean, they even have mosquito nets. There is swimming pool with deck chairs to relax. The staff are very friendly and helpful. There is a all day bar and free tea/coffee and cake in the afternoon. There is a waterhole right next to the lodge were animals come to drink at night and some even... More

All the rooms are wonderful. the food very good, a lake or waterhole to see the animals drinking water even during the night, a swimming pool to relax your mind and your body after a long day dedicated to the discover the wild animals...

Very comfortable, attention to details, wonderful setting and superb service. Only disappointment was repeat of vegetarian meal over the two nights we stayed. However, compared to other places in this great country, I was lucky to get vegetarian at all!

We have been a bit disappointed by our stay in this hotel located outside the Etosha park : 1/ The room we had was dark with limited decoration, basic bathrooms and very basic pavement. Bedding average. Really not to the level one would expect in this type of hotel. 2/ Safari tours are available in the hotel private area but... More

Just outside the Von Lindquist Gate, the camp is on its own private reserve. We only had one night here which was disappointing. Stay for two if you can. We had one of the larger two bedroom bungalows which was brilliant, enabling our teenage son to have some time on his own (or was it the other way round?). The... More

This was our favourite place during our 3 week visit to Namibia. The lodge is beautifully decorated with gorgeous furniture and artifacts, all open air. Our bungalow was large and airy and the swimming pool was a lovely treat after a game drive. One word of caution, part of the pool deck is extremely slippery and one of our party... More

Onguma Bush Camp is very close to Etosha NP. We had a cabin opposite the resto and waterhole. Fantastic sundown to enjoy from cabin or deck overlooking the waterhole. Dinner and breakfast are Namibian style. Friendly staff. We enjoyed to spent the afternoon relaxing and just doing nothing. Breakfast starts at 5.30am. Dinner N$270. Reminder hot water missing. Cabin stays... More

After camping for a few days, showing up here was like a dream. Unfortunately we only stayed one night, because the place was really lovely. The rooms are gorgeous, the food was amazing. Sitting at the pool right near the waterhole, and seeing Giraffes and all kinds of animals was such a treat. We also did a night drive and... More

We loved our stay there. Got in early enough to enjoy the pool and animal grazing super close, before the rhino game drive. The game drive and our guide were fantastic! We saw many giraffes, zebras, kudus, ... A black rhino and the most amazing of all a momma leopard with her two cubs (eating Impala, sleeping, sitting around). One... More
