Very good lodge but I would rather stay inside the reserve at Namutoni, even though it's a bit run-down. I found the drive to and from the park too long. What I did like and highly recommend, especially for photographers is their hide.

We had a good stay in Onguma Bush Camp. Did not like the first family type bungalow that we were assigned (no aircon, and weird layout), but were able to switch to a regular bungalow with a mattress on the floor, which we preferred. Cute and funny warthogs grazing on the lawn every morning - and great pool!

Skauerud, Vibeke - 09th Apr, 2018

Lovely place and great location

Rayner, Murray - 27th Feb, 2018

A real treat, with super service and no problem to add the 3rd person in an adjoining room, at a reasonable price.

Lang,john - 20th May, 2017

Luxurious camp with excellent service! A wonderful experience!

De Bruin, Justine - 19th May, 2017

Great location in beautiful surroundings, excellent food

Nippe, Veronika - 24th Apr, 2017

Good room and lovely food. Initially disappointed that there were no animals around but as it was so close to the entrance gate we just went into Etosha for a couple of hours.

Gambrill, Mary - 17th Oct, 2016

Very nice. Actually, since it is so close to the park it is really a nice place to stay. Last time we stayed in both their other camps and for the money, this is good.

Mcgrath, Catherine - 01st Oct, 2016

An extremely comfortable and picturesque lodge with great food and attentive service. The game drives they offered were fun (we particularly enjoyed our drive/walk with David), though they seemed to be a bit on the expensive side for trips around Onguma alone. It's a good spot for families, though if one wants to avoid children, it might be worth considering one of Onguma's other properties.

Glass, Robert - 08th Jun, 2016

very welcoming. Also, knowing we had wedding anniversary, they offered a separate table with free sparkling wine. Beautiful.

Tamsar, Toomas - 16th Jan, 2016

Really nice lodge. We were really amazed by the friendliness of the staff. The rooms were really spacious and luxurous. The food was delicious.

Blonde,nicky - 06th Oct, 2015

Lovely chalet in a really peaceful camp. There was not much wildlife to see at their waterhole though.

King, Sarah - 21st Sep, 2015

After reading a couple of guide books we expected something quite simple. However Onguma far exceeded that. A lovely place with beautiful rooms and, once again, really lovely food and friendly staff. The rhino research program drive was simply sensational, the best drive we went on all holiday. Would have loved to fit a second night in here

Newsome, Michael - 04th Sep, 2015

Our favourite - not that any others were bad! Great location, accomodation, food and service. Great that dinner was included in the price.

Burland, Marianne & Dave - 30th Aug, 2015

This was by far the best place on our trip. The accommodation was excellent, spacious and clean and the food and service were impeccable. The decor was outstanding in the lodge and we loved dining open air by the waterhole.

Hoke, Steven - 30th Jul, 2015

Lovely camp, excellent service, terrific guide.

Cuddy, Amy - 18th Jul, 2015

Very nice. Very good service and food. Disappointing excursions - night drive and bush walk.

Richardson, Gary - 26th Jun, 2015

Generally very nice and friendly staff.

Callebert,lois - 21st Jun, 2015

Wonderful management. Incredibly kind and helpful!

Stuyt, Jason - 05th Jun, 2015

Highly recommended!

Stolk,boudewijn - 31st May, 2015

Stunning accomodation just outside Namutoni. Good place to relax. Wish we had stayed two nights instead of one.

Umbricht, Regula - 14th Oct, 2014

A very good establishment and we would definitely stay there again if returning to Etosha. It was a nice surprise.

Abbott, Peter & Carol - 06th Oct, 2014

beautiful and perfect for families, very safe and neat place!

Landi, Emanuela - 25th Aug, 2014

Very beautful and relaxing place, good restaurant and enourmous settlers room. Very happy to be there at the sunset in the waterhole despite some insects. Unfortunately information about night game drive was missing from the reception lady and we stayed only one night so we`re disappointed about didn`t have the chance to do it.

Pollastri,federica - 22nd Aug, 2014

Thought this was a lovely place to stay, nice service and meals and setting. Well run.

Houlding,alastair - 21st Aug, 2014

Excellent lodge. Great pool

Montgomery, Elaine - 18th Apr, 2014

Wonderful, beautiful and luxurious. Highlight of our trip. Highly recomended

Cutter, Leslie - 26th Sep, 2013


Montalbano, Marco - 02nd Sep, 2013

A bautiful and relaxing lodge with a very good and kind staff.

Rabella, Joan - 30th Aug, 2013

This was a gem. Lovely facilities and staff were great. Highly recommend it

Webber, Caroline - 25th Jul, 2013

Excellent lodge. No animals at the waterhole, though.

Karlstrom, Annette - 23rd Jul, 2013

Extremely nice setting, nice staff and very good food. Best place to visit close to Etosha.

Gelder, Jeroen - 06th Jul, 2013

Great place to stay, near the eastern entrance of Etosha. Unfortunately, because the lodge is quite new, not that many animals near the waterpool yet. However, having said that, there is an abundance of birds and we had a lot of fun watching the squirrels around the pool

Cuijpers, Wendy - 17th Jun, 2013

Great accommodation. Very nice staff, and service, excellent food.

Huiskes, Inge - 14th Mar, 2013

Fantastic! The food, service, and grounds were wonderful.

Laidlaw, Carol - 06th Jan, 2013

Very nice and great service

Debbas, Richard - 24th Nov, 2012

The best ever experience in a wildlife setting. Excellent professional service

Diedericks, Pieter - 20th Oct, 2012

One of the best places we stayed. If we would go back we would stay here longer and skip Halali. Very friendly staff, beautiful room, nice swimming pool (larger than all other ones)

Peremans, Annick - 16th Oct, 2012

Nice accommodation

Roeters, Jolanda - 15th Aug, 2012

Well, Onguma was the closest to my idea of Heaven on Earth! I simply loved it and enjoyed my stay there very, very much!!!

Meletti, Flora - 13th Aug, 2012

We enjoyed the pool and the beautiful gardens. Friendly staff. Good food.

Dams, Luc - 12th Jun, 2012

A beautiful location and lovely rooms. Very expensive and not worth staying here if your interest is Etosha. The staff service was the best we`d experienced in Namibia.

Eldridge, Russell - 14th May, 2012

Driving into Onguma from main road - surrounded by so many wonderful animals. Our first giraffe sighting was so exciting. Arriving at the Camp - we were greeted so warmly and were delighted to discover such a lovely place. The guide book I had mentioned that it was very spartan and not very comfortable - so I was expecting something quite shabby and maybe disappointing. Onguma couldn`t have been more different: it was stylish, peaceful, natural, well maintained with gorgeous gardens. Not very large and felt quite special. We wished we could have stayed another day to enjoy the pool and just relaxing. Staff were delightful.

Coventry, Nicol - 02nd May, 2012

13 oct 2011 Very nice and cosy place, friendly and welcoming staff. The restaurant is too closed to the waterhole so you need to have dinner and breakfast in the dark because of sort of flies.

Buee, Christophe - 20th Nov, 2011

Fantastic - we got upgraded to the Luxury tents as there was a problem in the bush camp. It was fabulous!

Mckenzie, Lucie - 17th Nov, 2011

Beautiful lodge with very fiendly staff. We had no inroom safe (like on your website). Good dinner and breakfast. New waterhole in front of the dining/bar-area, but the wild animals don't know this - they don't come yet.

Isermann, Rita - 02nd Nov, 2011

verry nice lodge with excellent food

Feytons, Bea - 01st Nov, 2011

Splendid, our nr. 1 on our lodge hitlist. Nice place, nice food and warm service.

Grooten, Johan - 24th Oct, 2011

A very pleasant luxury lodge location right next to the National Park gate. Individual round ensuite chalets with an outdoor restaurant and excellent food. Very friendly, welcoming and helpful staff. One drawback was the number of flies but hopefully this problem can be resolved. Even with the flies we would highly recommend this accommodation.

Terrett, Andrew - 17th Oct, 2011

Very friendly personell. Nice camping with own facilities. We'd go there again.

Bergstrom, Jorgen - 08th Oct, 2011

We got upgraded to the plains camp and the place was amazing

Murray, Simon - 30th Aug, 2011

very nice and cosy place, friendly reception, good food. Renovated july 2011.

Poppe, Rudy - 22nd Jul, 2011

Brilliant place! Very well organized and brand new, good staff

Vochteloo, Anne - 17th Jul, 2011

We were here on a very cold night, the first time I have ever had to wrap in a blanket for dinner, but the place is lovely, and we enjoyed the tents

Kaszo, Attila - 02nd Jul, 2011

Well what can i say we were moved to the tree tops as the bush camp was having work done to it. It made a great start to our holiday the staff and accommodation were of a very high standard. Only regret is that we did not stay for 2 nights instead of staying at Okaukuejo Resort. Would recommend by what else we saw in Onguma it was to a very good standard of accommodation. Breakfast and dinner were very good.

Walters, Elizabeth - 10th May, 2011

Great lodge, with high-level bush-chalets. The room was very nice, richly decorated and with a spacious bathroom. Garden, pool, and common areas very well maintained. Great restaurant service and unforgettable sunset dais!

Mazzocato, Marco - 05th Jun, 2010

a very nice lodge; pitty that we could only for 2 nights

Demuynck, Edwin - 09th Mar, 2010

beautiful, very polite and great comfortable rooms

Pasquali, Maurizio - 10th Sep, 2009

Fantastic dining area and very convenient for that end of Etosha. The room was a bit disappointing compared to our other experiences but only in a sense that the outlook from the room was of an overgrown area with rubbish in it. The room itself was fine.

Mitchener, Nick - 09th Sep, 2009
