A very pleasant place to stay and some of the best food we had during our trip around Namibia. The rooms are quite comfortable and facilities good. Very convenient for Etosha. Would happily return here on another trip

All Lodges of Onguma are simply run very professional. The Bush Camp is no exception. Very nice and large rooms, excellent service, good dinner and wines as well as one of the best rural breakfasts in the country (not just cheddar chees, but a sound cheese platter etc). Thumbs up!

This is a class operation. Great service, great food and great facilities. Previously we have stayed in one of the other Onguma camps and also was a great experience. They do have fully functional wifi. Rooms are very nice and the lodge and meals are excellent. Highly recommended.

The entrance to the camp is only 600 yards outside of the Von Lindequist gate for Etosha National Park. This place is all about relaxation and the pool area is a perfect place to chill out and watch for any visiting animals to the waterhole. Our room (no 12) was spacious with a large bathroom. The food and service were...

Set around a large waterhole, all 'tents' have a great view, especially at dawn and sunset. The accommodations are fabulous, very well appointed, beautifully furnished and comfortable. The lala, or central dining area, lounge and bar were equally fabulous, all overlooking the waterhole and offering great views of the visiting wildlife. Excellent food, first class! Amazing cocktails. Very friendly and...

With its pretty waterhole and the green beautiful trees, Onguma is a welcome relief from the dryness and dust of Etosha. The dining room/ lounge area is beautiful and the rooms are comfortable. The only negative is that smoking is allowed in the best spot (the lounge area just above the waterhole).

We loved our spacious and well appointed room and the general grounds, but the service was lacking in the dining room. We had the wrong entree delivered one night & at times could not locate our waiter. Our outings with the guide, however, were quite successful as we managed to spot both a cheetah and leopard. We saw many animals...

Arrived by transfer game drive through Etosha, to waut at reception while there was a dispute with other guests over costs. We paid extra for an evening drive and sundowner, but did not see much of anything, and were unable to see some of the game from the back of the safari jeep because it was obscured by vegetation.
