Stay at Anderssons at Ongava

The new Anderssons at Ongava lodge fosters a deep connection to the wilderness, most prominently experienced at the waterhole and the nearby underground viewing hide. Here, guests are treated to an intimate yet unobtrusive water-level view of the abundant wildlife and birdlife thriving in Ongava Game Reserve. The camp features a central infinity-edge swimming pool and a surrounding lounge area, offering sheltered nooks where visitors can relax while enjoying views of the waterhole and the surrounding landscapes. The social area serves as a vibrant hub where guests gather for meals and interactions with fellow wildlife enthusiasts, guides, and naturalists. It comprises both an undercover and open-air dining space, a spacious lounge and bar, a sunken observation terrace, and cozy open fireplaces to keep guests warm during chilly winter nights.

For photography enthusiasts, a dedicated photographic nook is available for reviewing and editing images. The camp also boasts unique features, including an authentic Namibian curio shop, a library, complimentary Wi-Fi, and access to the wealth of research data accumulated through years of dedicated scientific efforts on Ongava. Just a short walk from the camp is the Ongava Research Centre, where resident scientists work in the lab within the Game Reserve. Guests have the opportunity to engage with the science and research primarily at the Ongava Visitor Centre, where they can leisurely explore the self-guided exhibition area. Additionally, the adjacent 36-seat auditorium facilitates interactive presentations and discussions. Anderssons at Ongava offers exceptional selling points, including its unparalleled proximity to the most productive area of Etosha National Park, a sunken hide providing captivating views of a popular waterhole, and the chance to visit the Ongava Visitor Centre.

The Pitchers

We had the most amazing time! John Barclay and his team were very special and the mobile safari exclusive and superb. Moremi was very quiet with few other tourists – no more than a dozen other vehicles seen in four days. Macatoo was also excellent with good riding and game. We were so grateful for the help that you offered when our BA flights went wrong. Many thanks again for the superb service and recommendations which made for a great holiday.
