Onguma tree top
Onguma Tree Top Camp is a place to savour, small bits at a time. Designed for those travellers who would like to truly experience the bush in all its raw splendour. A place where giraffe, zebra, lion, and many other species of antelope come to quench their thirst.
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. The Camp consists of 4 thatched rooms with canvas walls, a deck overlooking the waterhole, a lounge, dining room and interactive kitchen. A maximum of 8 guests (including guide) can be accommodated.
This place was so wonderful!! The treetop houses where very cute and every morning you woke up to the sunrise, looking out over the waterhole and bush, with all the birds singing. Magical! Then you would go and have a delicious breakfast where the chef Erasmus would cook you pancakes or eggs and bacon. Or both 🙂 The staff was very kind and helpful. We had a flat tire, which they fixed for us. Really really nice, because the nearest repair shop was very far away. We saw lots of wildlife and almost no bugs.
Great place and we will definitely return next time we go to Namibia!
“A magical place to stay”
This lodge is just outside etosha national park. There are different camps within onguma, but the tree top was wonderful. With just four tents we had individual attention from the manager of the camp. The tents were built on stilts overlooking a water hole and you could leave the from of the tent open at night to watch the stars or the wildlife as we lay in bed.
The chef produced marvellous food at each meal and nothing seemed to much trouble for the staff.
It can serve as a base for exploring etosha , but we spent one morning of our stay just watching a succession of varied wildlife come to the water hole. We could not suggest any way in which this camp could be improved.
