We stayed at the campsite of onguma. The campsites were clean, and we had our private douche, toilet and lavatory space. We had dinner at the restaurant which served a perfectly grilles piece of game meat. The restaurant had a Nice view on the waterhole, and was during our dinner visited by an elephant! Don't spend your money on the... More

Its a long drive to get to the camp but worth it. The camping area is clean and has great and varied birdlife. Only a short walk from the main facility where you can get a very pleasant dinner looking out over the water.

What a wonderful place to stay. My son & I stayed in room 2 which was great. You looked out the door and there was the water hole that the animals were coming to. We saw wonderful birds, zebra, antelope, jackals just standing at the door. The staff were so wonderful, the guides mostly were very knowledgable, and we went... More

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
