Such a great deck outside, and banging tunes on a Sunday. Legendary hosts and shooters. The best place locally for pizza and beers.

Honestly, I can't thank the staff and the owners of BONGOS for making my boyfriend and I feel like we were welcome - visiting all the way from Toronto. The food and drinks were constantly flowing. Everything is fresh and the Pizza is seriously these best I have ever had. The Pizza was always done the way I liked it.... More

As long as Bongos doesn't skimp on the quality of their food and team working there they'll stay second to none. Keep it up Peace

What a great local pub and pizza spot! Really friendly, relaxed atmosphere with the best pizza I've tasted in the area (pulled pork on a pizza). And they have Windhoek on tap, winner!!! Great for watching rugby as well. I definitely recommend a stop at Bongos whether it's for a drink, pizza or rugby.

Stayed in Wilderness for a couple of days and wanted to go for a quick drink before dinner, called in at Bongos and the Pizzas smelled so good we ended up staying- we weren't disappointed they tasted even better than they smelled. My husband tried the 'Mighty Meat' and said it was simply the best pizza he'd ever had (and... More

Ah man where do I even begin! Bongos is incredible, everything from their warm welcoming vibes by the fire place in winter with warm apple cider and gluhwein to the open cool rocking deck in the summer time with ice cold draughts and pear ciders. Their pizzas are phenomenal and I always get spoilt with a scrumptious Yorkshire pudding every... More
