Ongava Lodge

Etosha National Park, Namibia


Stay at Ongava Lodge

Nestled in the pristine Ongava Game Reserve, Ongava Lodge stands as one of Namibia’s premier lodges and offers a truly luxurious experience. Positioned atop a hill in the range’s foothills, the lodge provides breathtaking panoramic views of a frequented waterhole and the expansive plains beyond. The lodge boasts 14 rock-and-thatch en-suite chalets, exuding comfort and elegance. The main lounge and dining areas offer impressive vistas of the waterhole, while a refreshing pool provides respite from the day’s heat. Guests can savor delectable meals in the main dining area under thatch or on the dining deck under a starry African sky.

With an array of activities, including thrilling game drives into Etosha National Park, peaceful moments in the camp hide, and nature drives and walks on the reserve, Ongava Lodge ensures an unforgettable wildlife experience. The reserve is home to both white and black rhino, affording guests a rare opportunity to witness both species in their natural habitat. Ongava Lodge’s unique selling points include its elevated location, offering unparalleled views of the vast African scenery, its 30,000-hectare private reserve with convenient access to Etosha National Park, and a well-situated hide for observing the wildlife at the nearby waterhole. Furthermore, the lodge’s commitment to conserving and monitoring the black-faced impala, along with its thriving populations of lion, rhinos, and plains game, further elevate its appeal as an exceptional destination for wildlife enthusiasts.

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.
