The Camp is located only eight kilometres from the Von Lindquist Gate on the eastern outskirts of the Etosha National Park. Originally part of the greater Etosha Game Reserve, Onguma is one of Namibia's best-kept secrets. Join an afternoon activity on the reserve. The Onguma reserve covers an area of 20 000ha and incorporates ecological substrata such as savannah, bushveld, omuramba and dry pan. Age-old and well-worn migration routes, once used by elephant and buffalo wander through Onguma's three dry riverbeds.
The reserve boasts over thirty different animal species. Plains game roam freely on the reserve and predators although not easy to spot are nevertheless common residents of the area. Onguma also became part of an innovative custodianship project relating to the black rhino. Six black rhino were darted in Etosha National park and shipped to the reserve. Here they are protected and monitored. More than 300 bird species can be viewed at Onguma. The reserve boasts the biggest breeding colony of white-backed vultures in Namibia. During the summer months Onguma becomes a bird-watchers paradise with innumerable species migrating to the wetlands created by the seasonal rains.
Day 2 (Sun): Etosha National Park
Accommodation at Onguma Tented Camp (Full Board & activities]
After a leisurely breakfast, enjoy a guided drive into Etosha National Park for a full day of game viewing. The Park is a vast 22 270 km2 of saline desert, savannah and woodlands, and is one of the largest parks in Africa. The definitive feature is the Etosha Pan (“Great White Place”), a vast, shallow depression of approximately 5 000 km2. Of the 114 mammal species found in the park, several are rare and endangered, such as the Black Rhino and Black-Faced Impala.
Etosha's current population of some 300 black rhino represents one of the few growing populations in the world. Etosha's elephants are reputed to be of the largest in Africa, the tallest ones measuring up to 4m at the shoulder. Their tusks are however relatively small, due to genetic defects and mineral deficiencies in their diet.
