Onguma Bush Camp is very close to Etosha NP. We had a cabin opposite the resto and waterhole. Fantastic sundown to enjoy from cabin or deck overlooking the waterhole. Dinner and breakfast are Namibian style. Friendly staff. We enjoyed to spent the afternoon relaxing and just doing nothing. Breakfast starts at 5.30am. Dinner N$270. Reminder hot water missing. Cabin stays... More

After camping for a few days, showing up here was like a dream. Unfortunately we only stayed one night, because the place was really lovely. The rooms are gorgeous, the food was amazing. Sitting at the pool right near the waterhole, and seeing Giraffes and all kinds of animals was such a treat. We also did a night drive and... More

We loved our stay there. Got in early enough to enjoy the pool and animal grazing super close, before the rhino game drive. The game drive and our guide were fantastic! We saw many giraffes, zebras, kudus, ... A black rhino and the most amazing of all a momma leopard with her two cubs (eating Impala, sleeping, sitting around). One... More

Reservation service at Onguma is non-existent: we have been trying to make reservation at Onguma Bush Camp with zero effect: all our messages e-mailed to three different e-mail addresses of Onguma have been ignored. When we tried to phone to Onguma's office number 061 237055 this morning (10 February 2015) a woman refused to answer and dropped the line. Perhaps... More

I am so sorry that you experienced such bad reservation service from us recently. Our systems went offline for a few days and it took us more than a week to catch up with the backlog and resulting chaos. We had lodge staff helping with reservations and worked over weekends to try and clear it. But, unfortunately, we were not... More

We stayed July 2014 & had a ball! First time to Etosha so loved watching the watering hole at night. Great animal sightings with Eric--make sure you do the game walk one morning, it was interesting, we learned a lot. And the harrumphing of a lion nearby certainly added to the thrill!

We stayed in the smallest rondavel at Onguma Bush Camp and that was small for two persons. Beds were fine, bathroom was fine, but there was hardly any space left for the luggage, and you could not sit anywhere inside if you wanted to get away from the heat. The rating of the room is therefore based on how we... More

An attractive spot just outside the Von Lindguist gate to Etosha, reachable by tarred roads. The main attraction is a waterhole with lovely views over the bush. Accommodation is simple but comfortable, and nice shower gel, shampoo etc is provided. Staff are friendly, food good (but nothing special) and there is a nice pool area overlooking the water hole with... More
