Accommodation Namibia - Northern Region
Little Ongava is quite possibly
Namibia's most luxurious and exclusive safari destination. Perched on a rocky
outcrop overlooking a waterhole, Little Ongava is known for its panoramic vistas
of the surrounding African savannah.
With only 3 spacious, luxurious and private units, Little Ongava really does offer an intimate and exclusive experience for its guests. Each unit features its own plunge pool, a sala, and an en-suite bathroom with both indoor and outdoor showers and a bath with a magnificent view. The dining and lounge areas share the same wonderful views of the waterhole below and lend themselves to relaxed, stylish meals under thatch or African sky alike.
Etosha National Park is Namibia's premier wildlife destination and one of Africa's largest game reserves. Large herds of wildlife teem around the waterholes and the endless plains offer breathtaking vistas. The Ongava Game Reserve shares a boundary with the Etosha National Park, where smaller game move between the two areas.
Activities at Little Ongava revolve around day and night wildlife-viewing drives, visiting hides that overlook waterholes and walks with experienced guides. A hide at the camp waterhole provides superb photographic opportunities. The Ongava Game Reserve features all the characteristic wildlife of the area, with both desert-adapted black and white rhino to be seen as well as lion.
Game drives and daytrips into the easily accessible Okaukuejo area of Etosha National Park are rewarding, with sightings of lion, elephant, gemsbok, springbok, red hartebeest, and white and black rhino. Guests at Little Ongava share a dedicated guide and Land Rover, ensuring the best possible nature experience at one of Africa's great wildlife destinations.
The Ongava Game Reserve is unique in that it is one of the few private game reserves in southern Africa where there is a chance of seeing both black and white rhino. For those who enjoy close wildlife encounters, tracking white rhino on foot with a guide is a highlight not to be missed.
History of Little Ongava Lodge:
In the early 1990s a group of Namibian, English, American and South African partners clubbed together and bought 30,000 hectares of land on Etosha's southern boundary. The aim of this venture was to create Namibia's finest private game reserve and to create a buffer for Etosha along its southern boundary. Ongava (meaning rhinoceros in Herero) was born, and a massive rehabilitation and restocking program took place. White rhino were introduced and over time black rhino migrated onto the reserve. Many thousands of animals are now found on Ongava including elephant, giraffe, gemsbok, springbok, red hartebeest, eland, wildebeest, zebra and the rare black faced impala. Lion, leopard and cheetah have also moved back into Ongava Reserve.
