Quite possibly Namibia’s most exclusive and luxurious safari destination, Little Ongava is the ideal place to escape from the stresses and strains of every day life. Perched on a rocky outcrop overlooking a busy watering hole, this deluxe retreat is surrounded by panoramic views of the endless African savannah.
Made up of just three well-appointed, luxurious private units, Little Ongava offers guests everything in the way of serenity and complete indulgence. The three units each have their own plunge pool, sala (outdoor day bed) and en suite bathroom with indoor and outdoor showers, and a Victorian bath that stands in front of a floor-to-ceiling window that boasts magnificent views over the reserve.
The dining and lounge areas have wonderful views of the watering hole below and offer guests intimate, relaxed dining under thatch or the vast star lit sky. Wooden walkways wind around rock boulders and link each suite with the main guest areas.
Little Ongava is situated in the Ongava Game Reserve, on the southern boundary of Etosha National Park, which is Namibia’s premier wildlife destination. Guests are invited to take early morning and late afternoon game drives with experienced guides in search of the large herds of wildlife that can be seen grazing on the endless plains, or gathering at the watering holes. Among the characteristic wildlife in the area, the reserve is also home to desert adapted black and white rhino, as well as lion.
Day trips into the nearby Okaukuejo area of Etosha National Park can also be organised, providing possible sightings of lion, elephant, red hartebeest, gemsbok and rhino, among others. All game drives are taking in specially adapted 4×4 Land Rovers.
The Ongava Game Reserve is one of the few destinations left that is home to black as well as white rhino, and guests can be taken in thrilling walks into the plains to track these rare and shy animals. Bird watching in the area is excellent, with the reserve boasting over 300 species of birds, including ten of Namibia’s 14 endemics, such as the bare-cheeked babbler, red-necked falcon and the violet wood-hoopoe.
