Onguma Treetop Camp is a small and intimate camp, especially designed for those travellers who would like to truly experience the bush in all its raw splendour. This is where guests are able to come and relax for a few days in the midst of their busy travelling schedule, and just breathe in the aromas of the bush and take in all the wildness that this place has to offer. The Camp is built on wooden stilts amongst the tree tops with full views over one of the most beautiful watering holes on Onguma Game Reserve. The Camp consists of 4 thatched rooms with canvas walls, a dining room and a main complex. Ideal for small family groups or friends travelling together.

We spent 2 amazing nights at the lodge. Our accommodation was comfortable and quite unique. Our first evening a small pride of lions spent the entire night on the far side of the waterhole. Over the course of our two days and nights we saw giraffes, warthogs, elephant, zebra, wildebeest and during dinner the second night a leopard spent 15 minutes drinking at the waterhole. Also many birds including a European bee eater. Excellent food, including fresh baked bread every day. It was our favorite of all the fantastic lodges we visited.

Only 3 rooms at this secluded open air site in the trees. Bedroom open to the waterhole in front and meals taken with other guests around one table. Food and staff excellent. Watching the flying insects in the lights beguiling. Very romantic setting and accommodation highly unusual. Great sundowner trip finishing at the salt pan! Superb location.

With four rooms eleveated on stilts overlooking an active watering hole ( discretely lit at night) this is a very special place. The rooms look straight out onto the watering hole and many animals arrive to drink. It is not necessary to draw the frnt canpopy so you canliterllay lie in bed and watch!

The Onguma Game Estate is right next to the Namutoni Gate to Etosha and consists of a number of different accommodations ranging from camping right up to The Tree Lodge. Our travel agent had booked us into the Tree Lodge which consists of 4 (only) double bedroomed areas two on either side of a beautifully built and decorated central area with lounge, dining and kitchen areas and bar. All are elevated to first story level on wooden posts separating guests from the wildlife. The lodge overlooks a waterhole which is lit through the hours of darkness and attracts many animals and birds from the surrounding area. We were enchanted with the whole experience from the moment we arrived. The accommodation is simply stunning, and to sleep with only a mosquito net between you and the waterhole is magical. In fact, we debated about not sleeping at all but were tired from two long days travel and couldn’t stay awake in the very comfortable bed. We did stay awake long enough however to see many interesting birds, mongoose, hyena, porcupine, zebra, impala and a cheetah which came and stayed for the best part of an hour. Simply stunning. Dinner is taken around a communal table with the other guests, the food is cooked fresh next to the table and served by staff who quickly become friends. They are knowledgeable about the wildlife, and dinner was interrupted on both nights by the arrival of interesting animals. Onguma Tree Top Camp is simply one of the most magical places we have ever been and its proximity to Etosha, where we went for a day’s game drive, ensure that the whole experience became one of the best of our lives. Would we go back? OMG, yes please. Tomorrow?
