One of five lodges in the Onguma Collection within the private Onguma Reserve, Onguma Bush Camp is the most family-friendly option and it is our preferred option for families on this side of the park.
For something a little more upmarket the stunning new Onguma Camp Kala is a wonderful option.
The Onguma Reserve itself borders the Etosha National Park on the far eastern side, it is 34,000ha of prime wildlife viewing habitat.
Activities include exploring the private reserve either by foot or in a vehicle as well as heading into the main national park through the eastern Von Lindequist Gate, which is just a short distance from the entrance to the Onguma Reserve. It is therefore a well-positioned base for those looking to utilise the services of the professional guides at the lodge or to venture into the national park under their own steam.
Onguma Bush Camp has 18 rooms of varying styles, from the twin-bedded rondavels to the three family units with two separate bedrooms, a shared bathroom and a small lounge area.
The camp is fenced, aside from 3 deluxe rooms which are in a un-fenced part of the camp, there is a large swimming pool and also a games room to keep children entertained.
For those with very young children it is worth noting that children under 10 are not allowed on game drive vehicles, so you would need to self-drive into the park yourselves if you have children of this age.
