This should certainly be your choice of accommodation if you are wanting to enter the Etosha National Park at the Namatoni gate. The service was simply fantastic, ladies got serviced first, waiters didn't lean over dinners to engage in a game of pass the plate. Our room opened into the un-fenced section of the waterhole which gave us a much... More

Wonderful to hear that you had such a good stay with us. Those view rooms on the edge of the camp are my favourites too! More

Located just outside the gate to Etosha, one of the premier game reserves in Africa, Onguma is a grand private reserve offering a variety of accommodations from camping to elegance at the Fort. Bush camp, our choice is perched on the edge of a water hole and very close to the abundant wildlife. It is the perfect place to relax,... More

Stayed here for 3 nights in March 2016. Extremely nice place with wonderful rooms. The entire lodge area overlooks a waterhole that attracts many different animals all day and evening. We saw zebras, giraffe's, warthogs, springbok, kudu and many others. The entire staff is extremely professional and they go out of they're way to make your stay enjoyable. Free wifi... More

The Onguma Bush Camp is a very well run place with friendly and competent staff. The food is very good as the service. The lounge is very relaxing. The only reason we don't give an excellent rating are the room. For the price a would expect a little bit more, not in terms of comfort, but a little bit more... More

Great location with easy access to Etosha safari trips. Rooms are spacious and clean. The main lodge and bar area is an excellent place to relax and have a drink after a day in Etosha. The grounds are beautiful and I'd often awake to see giraffes or antelope outside my cabin's door! Food is exceptional and service is good as... More

Situated about 9 k's from the Von Lindequist Gate we found Onguma Bush Camp to be a great alternative to NWR's Namutoni Camp. We so enjoyed our stay over the Christmas period that, in future, this will be our accommodation of choice when visiting this side of Etosha. The service was top class and a special mention should go to... More

Had a great 3 day/2 night stay at Onguma Bush Camp in early December 2015. The grounds were very lush, room was spacious and clean, the pool was wonderful, and the main lodge/restaurant was an wonderful spot to relax and enjoy the wildlife at the pond. The warthogs that help 'mow' the grass were rather comical as well. Room had... More

Arrived early afternoon to be told all the bookings for the safari trips were fully booked - sundowner, night & early morning - disappointing but never mind. Spent the afternoon next to the pool where a warthog lived & ran past often! The bedroom was lovely, close to the pool, restaurant & bar & in the evenings, the paths were... More

I am sorry to hear you couldn't join the Onguma drives, during high season it is highly recommended to pre-book your drives. However - I am please our warthogs kept you company! More
