Little Ongava - The Details
A truly personalised and special experience is the essence of Little Ongava, where guests enjoy just three fantastically luxurious suites with pools and outdoor showers in the private 30,000-hectare Ongava Game Reserve adjacent to the southern boundary of Etosha National Park.
Accommodation comprises of 3 spacious luxury suites each with its own plunge pool, en-suite bathroom, a “sala”, an additional outdoor shower and a view of the waterhole in front of the lodge. Little Ongava’s main area lends itself to relaxed, stylish dining under an African sky or under thatch.
Activities include game drives in open 4x4 vehicles into the Okaukuejo area of Etosha where Lion, Elephant, Cheetah, Gemsbok, Springbok, and Hartebeest can be seen at many of the waterholes in the park. In addition night drives and walks with an armed guide can be enjoyed on the private reserve. A hide at the camp waterhole provides superb photographic opportunities.
One of the joys of the 30,000 hectare Ongava Reserve is its resident White and Black Rhino, and guests staying at Little Ongava have the opportunity to see both species; these may be tracked on foot.
