Ongava Game Reserve on the southern boundary of Namibia`s Etosha National Park has two camps, Ongava Tented Camp and Ongava Lodge. The camps are managed independently and each has its own fulltime staff, guides, managers and vehicles. Both camps will have a similar activity schedule. Ongava Tented Camp is situated more towards the centre of the game reserve, at the base of the foothills of the Ondundozonanandana Range, meaning "mountain where the boy took the calves".
Ongava Tented Camp is a small classic, six-tent camp with Meru-style tents. These comfortable tents have private open-air bathrooms in the back of each tent, and a small veranda. The main dining room is under thatch and there is a veranda for dining under the stars. The camp also has a pool. There is also a much frequented, floodlit waterhole in front of the camp with excellent game viewing possibilities.
Etosha National Park is Namibia`s premier game viewing park. It is one of Africa`s largest parks and is nearly as large as the whole of Switzerland. It has good concentrations of elephant, lion, leopard, black rhino and all of Namibia`s plains game including springbok, gemsbok, and hartebeest. Ongava also has white and black rhino on the reserve so guests can experience a wonderful variety of animals during their stay. Birdlife around the waterholes is good, with ostrich, pygmy falcon and all the raptors in abundance. Some of the local specials include short-toed rock thrush, Hartlaub`s francolin, freckled nightjar and Meyer`s parrot.
