Onguma The Fort

The Fort overlooks the sparseness of the Etosha Pans and is unlike any other lodge in Namibia.

It provides guests probably one of the best sunset views in the whole of Namibia, and easy access to Etosha National Park with its incredible wildlife.

Onguma Private Game Reserve, Etosha, Namibia
Onguma The Fort
  • Private plunge pools

  • Watch the spectacular sunset over the scarceness of the Etosha Pans from your deck

  • Game drives in the Onguma Reserve and the Etosha National Park

  • Eye-catching interiors: angular furniture and twists of lime green, scarlet and pinks in fabrics and cushions

Located on the eastern side of Etosha, Onguma Private Nature Reserve has over 20,000 hectares of protected land and wildlife and boasts over thirty different animal species, including a family of black rhino.

In a landscape dotted with only animals and camel thorn trees, Onguma The Fort has a classic African feel with strong Indian and Moroccan flavours characterised by beautifully crafted window and doorframes. The inner courtyard with its large water feature calms the senses and guests can enjoy magnificent views from the tower. A large deck off the lounge area overlooks a waterhole where a variety of game come for refreshment every day.

Each suite has a bedroom, dressing area and air cooling system and the spacious bathrooms have both indoor and outdoor showers. The private deck includes sun loungers on which to relax and drink in the view. The Fort Suite is located in the Main Tower and offers similar facilities on a larger scale.

Activities revolve around game drives in and around the reserve and also into Etosha National Park. he Etosha Pan is parched and dry most of the time, but occasionally a few rivers and the unpredictable heavy summer rains can fill it. After particularly good rains, Etosha Pan can attract over a million flamingos to its salty waters. While the Pan itself is extremely salty and as a result does not support much vegetation, its edges give way to a surprising variety of vegetation types: from the broad swathe of mopane that encircles the broader area; to the tall tree canopies of the tamboti and terminalia woodland in the east; and to the open acacia-strewn plains, grasslands and dwarf shrub savannah in the west. Here mopane woodland dominates, whilst a low row of dolomite hills, evocatively called the Ondundozonanandana Range, provide relief to the otherwise flat surroundings and harbour populations of the endemic Anchieta's dwarf python and the local subspecies of rock hyrax.
