Ongava Tented Camp
Situated in the private Ongava Reserve, Ongava Tented Camp is an intimate property tucked away at the foot of a dolomite hill in a hidden valley to the south of Etosha National Park. The camp overlooks a waterhole that plays host to a wide variety of wildlife.
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.

Holiday to Ongava Tented Camp
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.Read full review
