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. This intimate camp is ideal for small groups traveling together as the 4 stilted tents only accommodate between 4 and 8 guests. The guest areas consist of a deck overlooking the waterhole, a lounge, dining room, and interactive kitchen.
This safari will take place at Etosha National Park and Onguma Game Reserve. Etosha National Park is a 22,750 square kilometers wildlife sanctuary in Namibia, one of Africa’s most stable and accessible countries. Etosha, meaning place of dry water, refers to a flat calcrete depression, or pan, of about 5.000 square kilometers. The pan, overlooked by the Onguma Reserve, provides a great, parched, silver-white backdrop of shimmering mirages to an area of semi-arid savannah grassland and thorn scrub.
The pan itself contains water only after very good rains and sometimes for only a few days each year. However, it is enough to stimulate the growth of blue-green algae which lures thousands of flamingos. There are approximately 114 species of mammal in Etosha. They include the black-faced impala and the threatened black and white rhino. There are however no buffalo, hippo, crocodile, monkeys, or southern impala.
Situated on the eastern side of Etosha, bordering Fisher's Pan, Onguma Game Reserve is one of Namibia's best kept secrets. Onguma Game Reserve has more than 34.000 hectares of protected land and wildlife. It incorporates ecological substrata such as savannah, bushveld, omuramba and dry pan. Age-old and well-worn migration routes, once used by elephant and buffalo, wander through Onguma’s three dry riverbeds.
The reserve boasts over thirty different animal species consisting of plains game including kudu, giraffe, eland, oryx, hartebeest, zebra, impala, and more. There also predators such as lion, cheetah, leopard, being common residents of the area. More than 300 bird species can also be viewed at Onguma Game Reserve. During the Namibian summer months, the reserve becomes a birdwatcher's paradise with thousands of species migrating to the wetlands created by the seasonal rains and ephemeral river systems.
You will be served daily breakfast, lunch, and 4-course dinner during your stay. If you have any other dietary requirements, you can let Onguma Game Reserve know.
