Onguma The Fort

Etosha National Park


Onguma The Fort Location Map

Situated on the eastern side of Etosha, bordering Fishers Pan, Onguma is one of Namibia's best kept secrets. Onguma Nature Reserve consists of 34,000 hectares of Namibian wilderness and boasts over 30 different animal species.

Plains game roam freely and predators, although not always easy to spot, are nevertheless common residents of the area. Lion and cheetah are frequently seen and often heard. There is a healthy black rhino and leopard population and hyenas are also often seen and heard. More than 300 bird species have also been recorded here.

Onguma The Fort is the only one of its kind in Namibia. It is built in exactly the right spot to give guests probably one of the best sunset views in the whole of Namibia - overlooking the beautiful scarceness of the Etosha Pans. Upon arriving at Onguma The Fort, you will be welcomed by not only the friendly staff, but also massive raw walls, stunning stone cladded features and a huge tower with views toward Etosha and Fisher's Pan. The Fort has a classical African feel combined with a touch of Moroccan and Indian flavours, characterised by a selection of the most beautiful antique windows and doors.

Accommodation consists of 11 Bush Suites and one Honeymoon Suite, all situated adjacent to the Main Fort. Every Bush Suite is completely private and about 50 meters apart from one another. The spacious bathroom has both an inside shower as well as an outside shower area. Wooden decks lead you towards the outside seating area with sun loungers for relaxing and enjoying the extraordinary view.

In addition, the Sultan Suite is situated inside the Main Tower. It has a large beautifully designed bedroom that leads into a lounge area and out onto a small private viewing deck. The large bathroom has a wonderful open shower area, as well as a bath in which to relax and reflect upon your day's experiences.

Activities include Etosha game drives, Onguma sunset drives, and interpretative bush walks. There is also a water-level hide overlooking an active waterhole.
