In the local Herero language, Onguma means 'the place you don't want to leave.' With a stunning 'safari chic' styled main building, tented rooms providing private and exclusive accommodation, and an outstanding level of service and attention to detail, Onguma Tented Camp certainly lives up to its name.
The camp is located in the 34,000 hectare Onguma Game Reserve, on the eastern side of Etosha and bordering Fisher’s Pan. The reserve itself boasts over 30 different animal species. Plains game roam freely on the reserve and predators, although not easy to spot, are nevertheless common residents of the area. Lions are frequently seen and often heard. There is a healthy black rhino and leopard population and hyenas are also often seen.
More than 300 bird species can be viewed at Onguma, and the reserve also boasts the biggest breeding colony of white-backed vultures in Namibia. During the summer months Onguma becomes a bird-watchers paradise with thousands of species migrating to wetlands created by the seasonal rains and systems.
Your game drives will be done in the Etosha Park itself, however sunset drives on the Onguma concession are one of the highlights of a stay here.
When not out on a game drive, it is easy to spend a lazy afternoon relaxing on the sofas in the lounge, watching the animals go. And when things heat up, all that is required is a gentle stroll to the rim flow pool.
The camp has just 7 luxury tents, which all have an indoor and outdoor shower, and a view over an active waterhole.
Textures such as stone, suede, linen and steel create a setting throughout that is sleek and modern. Inspired by a photograph of an oryx on Etosha's Fisher's Pan, the interiors echo the colours of its natural surrounds. Grey, charcoal, black, white, and creams, together with a touch of muted or unexpectedly bright green, adds sophistication and earthiness to the atmosphere.
