Simply Onguma has the best restaurant in the Etosha National Park. Also the camping site is really well organized that campers have their own area which separate them from the other campers, but it also allows a certain interaction if wanted. It's simply my favorite spot there, easy to reach the Etosha gate also!

The camp was strikingly pretty, situated in the wilderness. We heard hyenas all night long and saw a leopard drag a kudu into the thickets from just outside our tent. The accommodation and food were top notch. The manager, Marishka took extremely good care of us. We were gifted a complementary bottle of wine on our first night here(considering it...

If I were to go to Etosha again, I would drive directly from Windhoek to Onguma camp and stay here the night before entering. The great thing about this camp is that the gates don't close, unlike Etosha. The campsites are delightful - they have a beautiful en-suite bathroom and the sites are powered. The on-site maintenance man even helped...

This is a very nice camp just on the outskirt of Etosha. Takes about 10 min to enter Etosha. The restaurant is excellent and has a splendid view over a whaterhole. Make sure you do one of the games drives in Ongume. Very nice service at reception and restaurant.

Very comfortable, attention to details, wonderful setting and superb service. Only disappointment was repeat of vegetarian meal over the two nights we stayed. However, compared to other places in this great country, I was lucky to get vegetarian at all!

We have been a bit disappointed by our stay in this hotel located outside the Etosha park : 1/ The room we had was dark with limited decoration, basic bathrooms and very basic pavement. Bedding average. Really not to the level one would expect in this type of hotel. 2/ Safari tours are available in the hotel private area but...

Just outside the Von Lindquist Gate, the camp is on its own private reserve. We only had one night here which was disappointing. Stay for two if you can. We had one of the larger two bedroom bungalows which was brilliant, enabling our teenage son to have some time on his own (or was it the other way round?). The...
