Onguma Etosha Aoba Lodge
Etosha National Park

Accommodation Namibia - Northern Region

Welcome to Onguma Etosha Aoba Lodge - Welcome to the Namibian Wilderness - situated on a 36.000 ha private game reserve adjacent to the Etosha National Park. - Nature and leisure at it's best - where you can participate in any of our memorable activities or relax in a pleasant bush atmosphere.

The Etosha Aoba Lodge is located on the Farm Vergenoeg. In May 1998 the Farm was officially proclaimed Fischer's Pan Private Nature Reserve. At the same time we removed all the internal fences which were necessary to demarcate grazing for cattle farming. The 7000ha could now be freely roamed by the game.

The boundary fences remained for many years but eventually in 2007 after a close partnership developed between Fischers Pan Private Game Reserve and the owners of the neighbouring farms the common boundary fences were removed. The result is a private nature reserve with the gigantic size of 36.000 ha. In the same year all the fences in the new private reserve were removed. A big step forward for the animal welfare in the north of Namibia.

The common boundary with the Etosha National Park makes this location very special.

From our open Lapa and the swimming pool you can see a waterhole where you can observe wild animals coming to have a drink. Our bar overlooks both the swimming pool as well as the waterhole. On the terrace in front of the open Lapa, dinner is served under the star filled African sky. The open Lapa is a place of gathering where guests and hosts meet to relax and chat. Here amazing stories are shared between guests while enjoying cold drinks.

Our four free standing Luxury Bungalows offer privacy and all the comforts for a pleasant stay. Enjoy the tranquility of the African Bush from your private terrace with chairs, sun loungers and a “mini lapa”. For a quick relief from the summer heat you will find your own refreshing outside shower. A ceiling fan and an air-condition/heating unit ensure that you feel comfortable in any season with us.

The large glass sliding door is combined with a mosquito screen. Should a mosquito find his way into your bungalow, a large mosquito net protects your bed from these unwanted “guests”. All our Luxury Bungalows are equipped with a modern bathroom with shower/toilet, small safe and tea / coffee facilities. In the evening we fill up your "bush-minibar” with cold drinks.

From our swimming pool you have a view over our waterhole. Ice cold drinks and snacks are served directly at the pool.
The perfect way to relax after a long drive or a busy day.

Being adjacent to Etosha National Park, Aoba Lodge is the perfect starting point for game viewing in the park. The excellent infrastructure of the park invites you to venture out in your own vehicle or if you prefer to concentrate on game viewing and photography, we recommend our guided Etosha Game Drive. Our trained guides will drive you through the National Park in our open off-road vehicle and explain to you what to look out for and supply any information that you might require.
