A family-friendly safari destination, Onguma Bush Camp is perfectly situated on the eastern side of Namibia’s iconic Etosha National Park.
Accommodations at the camp consist of sixteen rooms. For families, there are five twin bedded standard rooms which includes three rooms with a children’s sleep area in the loft and one family unit with four beds. There are also six twin bedded waterhole/pool-side rooms, three rondavels, one Settler’s Room, and two single tour guide rooms. All rooms include an en suite bathroom with a shower while the Settler’s Room also comes with a bath. Other amenities include fans, air-conditioning, and mosquito nets fitted to the windows.
The camp is set in the Onguma Game Reserve which stretches across 84,015 acres of protected land. Plains game such as kudu, giraffe, eland, oryx, hartebeest, zebra, and impala roam freely, and predators including lion, cheetah, and leopard are frequently sighted. The reserve even boasts its own family of Black Rhino. During the Namibian summer months, when the rains have finally come, the park becomes a birdwatcher’s paradise. Over 300 bird species migrate to the wetlands and the once-dry riverbeds. The private reserve also borders Fischer’s Pan, offering easy access to Etosha, Namibia’s premier wildlife destination. Etosha not only houses miles of prime game-rich grasslands, it contains the world-famous Etosha Pan, a white-clay, salt pan so large it can be seen from space.
