Ongava Lodge is located on a private reserve adjacent to the Etosha National Park. Etosha is roughly the size of Switzerland and is the premier conservation area in Namibia. The park offers some of the finest African safaris on the continent.

Ongava is set on a hillside with uninterrupted views of the plains below. 12 en suite chalets constructed of rock and thatch provide guests with luxurious accommodation on safari. The air-conditioned suites are spacious and feature a small safe as well as tea/coffee facilities. The rooms lead out onto private verandas - the ideal place to enjoy a sunset whilst sipping a sundowner during your safari.

The main lodge features a split-level lounge as well as a dining room and pub area. A waterhole which is floodlit at night provides some exceptional game viewing opportunities from the main lodge and its viewing deck. The lodge also features a swimming pool, which provides a cool oasis on those hot summer afternoons. Safari game drives are conducted daily either in Etosha or on the 35 000 Ha reserve.

Guests are chartered to Ongava Lodge on the border of Namibia's Etosha National Park from Windhoek via Johannesburg's O R Tambo International Airport. Game excursions in this harsh environment offer many unique sightings, from black rhino and desert elephant to the black-faced impala and the adorable Damara dik-dik. Predators such as lion, leopard and spotted hyena stalk after vast herds of wildebeest and zebra in Etosha.

Admire wildlife gathering around the waterhole below from the privacy of your suite's viewing deck or dispel the desert heat from your body in the oasis of the lodge's pool. For a relaxing reprieve during your safari in Namibia, sip on sundowners and tuck into generous gourmet meals with the wilderness a rung below your feet. This African safari package offers an organic wildlife experience in the plush rumples of luxury.

Riaan's Review

Some of the finest safari accommodation in Namibia can be enjoyed at Ongava. The setting of the lodge on a hill affords magnificent views of the surrounding wilderness and the opportunity to spot various species enjoying a drink at the waterhole. I would recommend a stay of at least four nights at Ongava to ensure that you fully experience the finest wildlife safari area in Namibia. You will be treated with fine cuisine and amazing wildlife encounters.
