Location:

Ongava Game Reserve on the southern boundary of Namibia's Etosha National Park has two camps; the main lodge, and the tented camp in a different part of the reserve.

Guests can choose the style of accommodation and size of camp that suits them best. The camps are managed independently and each has its own full-time staff, guides, managers and vehicles. Both camps will have a similar activity schedule.

Ongava Tented Camp is situated more towards the center of the game reserve, at the base of the foothills of the Ondundozonanandana Range, meaning "mountain where the boy took the calves".
