​Onguma Game Reserve

Onguma Game Reserve is located on the Eastern border of the stunning Etosha National Park, famous for it’s enormous skies, wildlife rich pans and views that go on forever…..

The Fort is the only one of its kind in Namibia.

It is built in exactly the right spot to give guests probably one of the best sunset views in the whole of Namibia – overlooking the beautiful scarceness of the Etosha Pans, decorated only with its wild animals and hundreds of Camel Thorn trees.

The Fort will surprise you at every corner; a classical African feel combined with a touch of Moroccan and Indian flavours, characterised by a selection of the most beautiful antique windows and doors.

From every area of the fort, wooden decks lead you towards the outside seating area and sun loungers for just relaxing and enjoying the extraordinary view.

Game Viewing: Onguma nature reserve boasts over thirty different animal species consisting of plains game including kudu, giraffe, eland, oryx, hartebeest, zebra, impala and many more as well as predators such as lion, cheetah, leopard, being common residents of the area.  The latest addition to the already abundant wildlife at Onguma Game Reserve is a family of black rhinos.
