Ongava Tented Camp
Why we like it
- Ongava Tented camp is located in the private Ongava Game Reserve close to the southern boundary of the Etosha National Park
- Eight Meru style tents all en suite with outside showers and a private deck
- Excellent waterhole eye level to the main area
- Activities on offer are day and night game drives in the Ongava reserve and the Okaukuejo area of Etosha National Park
- A very special authentic and intimate camp
Spending the afternoon in the main area of the bar overlooking the waterhole was a highlight of the trip, this is one of the most productive waterholes in Namibia.
The whole trip worked wonderfully smoothly and we felt it was simply the best holiday we have ever been on- which is high praise as we have travelled broadly all over the world.
