The small camp consists of only 8 tents, some of which possess views over the waterhole. Designed in the Meru-style, wooden decking raises the spacious tents slightly off of the ground. There is a shaded veranda out the front of each tent. Tent interiors possess an authentically rustic ambience with canvas walls and comfortable furnishings. The camp's main area is made of stone and thatch and overlooks the waterhole. You are welcome to relax in the comfort of the bar and open deck area, which boasts a campfire; perfect for gathering around in an evening and sharing stories of the day's adventures with other guests. Adjacent to the main area is the swimming pool.

Getting There

Ongava Tented Camp is approximately 1h20 minute flight from Windhoek. The airstrip is located approximately 15 minutes drive from the camp.


Game drives in both Ongava Reserve and Etosha National Park, guided walks and white rhino tracking as well as private vehicle booking available at an extra cost.

Review of Ongava Tented Camp

Rose Marie & Jennifer Sime

Great in every respect except when all the staff left to set up the bush barbecue and either the staff who was left did not make himself noticeable or there was really no one there. They also only had one staff person authorized to carry a rifle. They need more than one.
