Ongava Tented Camp is tucked into a hidden valley at the foot of a dolomite hill in Ongava Game Reserve bordering Etosha National Park. Eight large comfortable Meru-style tents all have en-suite facilities, open air showers and private verandas; the family unit sleeps four. The main area, built of stone, canvas and thatch, fronts onto a much-frequented waterhole; watching wildlife coming to drink from here or from the swimming pool is a favourite pastime.Ongava's proximity to Etosha allows for game drives in the National Park and on the Ongava Reserve itself. Other possibilities include guided walks, birding and spending time in hides. Ongava holds one of the largest rhino custodianships for the Namibian government in the country and is one of the few private game reserves in southern Africa where guests can see both black and white rhino.

Game reserves are nothing without game and thankfully Ongava did not let us down - each drive within the reserve was fantastic and easily better than other reserves we stayed at around Etosha. It's a big enough reserve to make each drive different but no...More
Ongava was a very nice camp. The view of sitting by a watering hole with animals coming and going was fantastic. Tents were nice and adequate. Guide was good and professional and knew his stuff. Overall, a nice camp and not the crowds of Etosha...More
