Onguma Tented Camp, Etosha National Park

Excellent - ££££


The Onguma Tented Camp is a wonderfully peaceful spot on the eastern border of the Etosha National Park. ‘Onguma’ is a word in the local Herero language that means ‘the place you don’t want to leave’ and we can see why!

Its position right next to a waterhole, the stunning buildings and the seven sophisticated yet down-to-earth tent-style accommodation options makes the Onguma Tented Camp a place to remember.

From here you can go further out into the wilderness of the private Onguma Game Reserve and see what you can discover on the plains. The team at the camp are happy to help you organise any additional excursions during your stay – just ask where they think is best to go.

The Onguma Tented Camp is the epitome of safari-chic. The blend of stone, suede, linen and steel create a modern but earthy feel that make the rooms seem closer to nature.

The tents themselves are breath-taking; the interiors are decorated in a minimalist style that still feels luxurious and comfortable. They all have en-suite bathrooms and private verandas where you can watch the animals wander by.


The camp’s lounge is another fantastic spot to watch the animals meander about, especially in the middle of the day when the sun is at its highest. You can relax with a cool drink and watch the animals do the same. You’re very likely to see rhinos, lions and other plains’ game here, so keep an eye out.

If you want to cool off even more, head to the rim-flow pool – it’s the perfect spot to relax and enjoy the incredible view.

Why We Love It

We love the Onguma Tented Camp because of its fantastic position just 60 metres from the waterhole. This almost guarantees animal sightings and provides fantastic views each day.
