Ongava Lodge

Ongava Lodge is situated on the private 30,000 hectare Ongava Game Reserve and shares a common border with Etosha. The lodge offers the full Etosha experience while providing great accommodation and service, as well as the opportunity to take night drives and nature walks on the reserve, activities that are not allowed within Etosha.

Ongava Lodge has 10 chalets which are attractively built out of brick and thatch close to the top of a hill. All your comforts are taken care of. Each chalet has an ensuite bathroom with flush toilet, bath, shower and double hand basins. There is air-conditioning in the rooms and overhead fans. The rooms have glass fronted doors which lead out onto a private covered verandah overlooking the bush. The main lounge, bar and dining area is also under thatch with wonderful views across the plains and floodlit waterhole below.

Outdoor dining under the stars, whilst viewing game drinking at the waterhole is something never to be forgotten. There is also a swimming pool and a large curio shop stocking a good selection of "African Gifts and branded safari clothing" As the lodge is built close to the top of a hill, there are several steps. If you can not climb steps, we suggest you book into Ongava Tented Camp.
