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.
