Why we like it
- Located in the private Ongava Game Reserve close to the southern boundary of the Etosha National Park
- Ongava Lodge is set on top of a hill overlooking a very productive waterhole with impressive views of the surrounding plains
- Activities on offer are day and night game drives in the Ongava reserve and the Okaukuejo area of Etosha National Park
- Desert adapted black and white rhino are often seen as well as a thriving lion population
- Perfect choice of camp to explore the Etosha National Park staying in the exclusivity of a private game reserve
Spend an afternoon in one of the private hides overlooking a waterhole observing the visiting wildlife.
Joanne Swinton was excellent and dealt with our numerous changes with courtesy and timely attention. Some of the places we stayed we might not have found without A&K and we would certainly return to them.
