Onguma Bush Camp

SKU: 8717 Category: Tags: ,

For visitors wanting to combine the thrill of big game sightings with classic safari-style accommodation and a relaxing break, Onguma Bush Camp ticks all the right boxes. Bush Camp overlooks a waterhole in a private reserve bordering Etosha National Park. Staying at this lovely lodge you have the authentic experience of being in the bush, but in thatched chalets that are of a much higher standard than the large rest camps in Etosha. And when you want to go game viewing, a short drive lands you right at Etosha’s eastern gate.

Bush Camp is the only fenced lodge on the reserve, and is perfect for families on safari. There are 19 air-conditioned chalets set on neat lawns, including three rooms with children’s sleeping areas in the loft and three family rooms with two separate bedrooms, a shared bathroom and a small lounge area.

All of the rooms at Bush Camp are airy, spacious and comfortable, and are furnished with twin beds. For the best views ask for one of the Waterhole Rooms which look out over the swimming pool as well as the waterhole, so you can watch the comings and goings of dik-diks, duikers and other antelope species.

Set off on morning and afternoon guided game drives in Etosha. Led by Onguma’s knowledgeable and friendly guides, these guided safaris increase your chances of excellent big game sightings, and teach you about the smaller creatures, birds and plants too. If you prefer to safari under your own steam you can drive yourself around Etosha – although that’s not allowed in the private reserve.

Activities that are allowed in the private reserve, however, include guided bush walks, night drives, and you can even go rhino tracking and learn about Onguma’s efforts in black rhino conservation.

After a safari-filled day, return to the lodge with your camera memory card packed with wildlife sightings and well-deserved appetite for one of Bush Camp’s delicious three-course dinners served in the restaurant overlooking the camp’s spotlit waterhole.

The only child-friendly accommodation on the reserve, Onguma Bush Camp lies conveniently close to Etosha and has a lovely main lodge with a split-level lounge, comfortable chalet-style accommodation and welcoming staff who do their best to ensure you have a memorable stay.
