You will be well looked after when you stay here. A small ' boutique bush tent ' type of accommodation. We enjoyed our evening dinners which are served at one large table for 8 guests at set times. The food is very good, especially the desserts. You could tell desserts were the chef's passion. Large wine selection. We were less...

We spent only one night here --probably needed more in order to really experience the water hole. Because we were out on safari until almost dark, we barely had time to sit out on the deck with fire and glass of wine when we were called to dinner. The next AM we safari again and left VERY early . There...

Onguma Treetop Camp was for me one of the highlights of our stay in Namibia. It is quite small and built on stilts. The views over the watering hole are magnificent. Rooms can be as open or as closed to the bush as you like as you can zip down an outside tent wall. The bathroom area was well equipped...

What a wonderful place! I loved the whole ethos of the tents which one could leave open to the sights and sounds of Africa. I also enjoyed the open kitchen where we could sit and watch the chef prepare and cook our meals. I would have loved to stay longer.

There are only four "rooms" at Onguma Treetop Camp. This lets you expect some privacy which you unfortunately not really get, although you have the possibility for a private look on the waterhole. The rooms are very small. Service, cleanness etc. are not adequate. NO WIFI at all although offered. All guests are dining together at one table. That's ok,....

Our three-night stay at Onguma Treetop camp was one of the highlights of our two week trip to Etosha. We stayed in one of the four beautiful tree houses, built on stilts that overlook the waterhole. The rooms are amazing and we're beyond expectations and totally open to the bush, although you can zip down an outer wall if you...

Pssst... don't tell anyone, but that is one of my special camps too. I love the easy accommodation style and 'in nature' feel. I have taken note of your comment regarding the guides and will speak to the team. I am so glad you had a good time and we hope you visit us again - maybe next time we...

Treetop Camp is a very special place. There are only four rooms, so there are only a maximum of 8 guests there at any given time. No children are allowed as there is no fence around the camp. The restaurant, lounge, deck and rooms are all on a raised wooden platform on stilts, which results in great views over the...

This lodge is just outside etosha national park. There are different camps within onguma, but the tree top was wonderful. With just four tents we had individual attention from the manager of the camp. The tents were built on stilts overlooking a water hole and you could leave the from of the tent open at night to watch the stars...

We spent two nights here towards the end if our three week trip to Namibia and as such I will compare this lodge to the many others we stayed at during our travells for overall experience and value for money.

The small group safari that took us through Namibia included two nights at Onguma Treetop Camp, and I don't think we could have found a better place to stay. The small size of the camp suited our group of seven perfectly. Each elevated room is sufficiently far from its neighbor to ensure privacy but with easy access to the main...

The Camp is built on wooden stilts amongst the tree tops with full views over one of the most beautiful watering holes on Onguma Game Reserve. The Camp consists of 4 thatched rooms with canvas walls, a dining room and a main complex. Ideal for small family groups or friends travelling together. ... more   less
