Ongava Lodge

Discover Ongava Lodge

Found in the private Ongava Game Reserve on Etosha National Park's southern boundary, Ongava Lodge overlooks endless plains and an adjacent waterhole, a hotspot for wildlife that come down to drink at its waters. Each of the 14 rooms are traditionally styled and boast charming glass doors that open out on to a wonderful veranda with views out over the surrounding plains.

The main area sports a quaint thatched roof, which is split levelled and encompasses the dining room and bar and a cozy lounge. Delicious meals are enjoyed under the incredible star filled sky or on the dining deck. The enticing swimming pool is located adjacent to the main area and is the perfect place to relax between activities.
