Ongava Private Game Reserve

Home to four luxury lodges, Ongava Game Reserve is situated just south of Etosha National Park. The closest entry gate to the park is Andersson’s Gate in the south. All the lodges have been built in such a way as to show off the striking landscape and Ongava’s spectacular wildlife. Ongava Private Game Reserve has dedicated guides that are readily on hand to assist our guests during their stay. With its proximity to the Etosha National Park (it shares a boundary), you can experience amazing game drives on the 30000-hectare conservancy – and is undoubtedly one of Namibia’s best parks.

Night drives and nature walks are not allowed at Etosha National Park – so make the most of your stay at Ongava and enjoy these activities. They’ll be memorable!

Little Ongava

Little Ongava – even with its proximity to Etosha National Park – is designed for privacy and luxury. Set on a high hill, inside the Ongava Game Reserve, you get to experience wide views over Namibia’s plains. Meander on a wooden boardwalk, that leads over rocks and trees, to the main lounge and dining area from one of three secluded thatch bungalows. Each bungalow feels like home with a fireplace, sitting room, private deck, infinity pool and ‘sala’. It’s pure indulgence indoors, surrounded by untamed nature outdoors.
