Little Ongava

Northern Namibia

Rating: Deluxe    

Little Ongava overview

With only 3 villas Little Ongava has a truly eclusive feel. Located on a hilltop looking out over the plains of the private Ongava Game Reserve, you feel as though as you have the whole place to yourself. Relax on your viewing deck and watch animals approach the waterhole to drink, cool off with a dip on your plunge pool or stand beneath the water on your outdoor shower. Walking into the suite you are greeted by air conditioning and a large sitting room where you can help yourself to tea and coffee or something chilled from the minibar. Wooden walkways link the villas with the central area where a thatched roof provides shelter from the sun and an open fire glows on chilly winter days. It opens on to a wide terrace and viewing deck with more waterhole views.

You are offered game drives each morning and afternoon which take place in both Ongava Game Reserve and neighbouring Etosha National Park. You can expect to a range of wildlife including both black and whote rhino, elephant, giraffe, lion and many species pof antelope. Nature walks in the private reserve offer an insight into life in the bush, and you can spend time in the viewing hide watching animals in close proximity. You also have the opportunity to go rhino tracking on foot which is an experience that should not be missed.
