Little Ongava - Designed for privacy, luxury and an intimacy, Little Ongava is set on a high hill with pristine views across the plains. A long boardwalk meanders over rocks and trees, connecting the beautiful main lounge and dining area with one of three breathtaking, secluded thatch-roofed bungalows. Each bungalow is like a home, featuring a large sitting room with a fireplace, a private deck, infinity pool and sala. The overall impression is one of pure natural indulgence indoors, surrounded by untamed nature outdoors.
The Ongava Game Reserve is a private 30,000ha game reserve and is adjacent to the southern boundary of Etosha National Park. A worthwhile wildlife destination in it's own right, Little Ongava is the perfect launchpad for safaris into Etosha itself.
The Ongava Reserve has resident white and black rhino. Take the opportunity to see both of these rare animals on one of the reserve's guided tours. Lion, elephant, cheetah, oryx, springbok and hartebeest can also be seen at both the reserve and Etosha Park. Guests at Little Ongava share a dedicated guide and Land Rover, ensuring the optimum nature experience at one of Africa's great wildlife destinations.
The reserve attracts many species of bird including 10 of Namibia's endemic or near-endemic species such as the violet wood-hoopoe, carp's tit, red-necked falcon and bare-cheeked babbler. The Namaqua sand-grouse, short-toed rock thrush, acacia pied barbet, double-banded courser and yellow-bellied eremomela can also be observed.
