Onguma Tented Camp is a beguiling mixture of sophistication and relaxation, of elegance and the earth.
It is this intriguing combination and attention to detail that makes Onguma Tented Camp, the ultimate in safari chic.
In the local Herero language, Onguma means, “the place you don’t want to leave.” With a stunning main building and seven tents providing private, exclusive accommodation, Onguma Tented Camp, certainly lives up to its name.
Like the bush where soft air blows against sharp thorns, Onguma Tented Camp is a study in contrasts. Textures such as stone, suede, linen and steel create a setting that is sleek and modern but also inherently of the earth. Inspired by a photograph of an Oryx on Etosha’s Fisher’s Pan, the interior echoes the colours of its natural surrounds. Grey, charcoal, black, white, and creams, together with a touch of muted or unexpectedly bright green, adds sophistication and earthiness to the atmosphere.
An atmosphere of elegant dining prevails, complimented by the daily activities taking place around the watering hole, approximately 60 meters away. The surrounding nature lends itself to long lazy afternoons, spent relaxing on the sofas in the lounge, watching the animals go. And when things heat up, all that is required is a gentle stroll to the rim flow pool. Sit and relax in the flowing waters while enjoying an ice cold cooler. Alternatively if more strenuous activity is required, then relaxing on your patio and reading a good book should provide you with all the exercise you may need.
Unfortunately no children under the age of 12 permitted.
Best Time to Visit Namibia
Namibia is one of the sunniest countries and is an all year destination, summer is very warm and sunny with cold nights. There is always a chance of spectacular thunderstorms during winter months. Wildlife viewing in all parks, but especially in Etosha, is best in the dry season from June to October whereas the wetter season is better for scenary, bird watching and photography. June to October is usually the peak travel season and requires planning in advance.
