Located in the Onguma Private Game Reserve, this Old-World safari-style camp acts as a great base from which to explore the Etosha National Park and as a great spot from which to observe one of the most vibrant wildlife areas in Namibia. Whilst Onguma's other properties in the area do not allow children, Bush Camp goes out of its way to be family-friendly with suitable accommodation and fences surrounding the property.

There is an emphasis on family here. The staff are very friendly to children, and make sure they have a great time whilst also ensuring their parents achieve their own safari experience. There are 3 loft rooms and one family room that ensure parents and children are accommodated in adjourning rooms sharing the bathroom. Sometimes, families can arrange for private game drives in addition to the regular program.

Activities revolve around the camp’s great location near Etosha National Park. Guests can go on morning and afternoon guided game drives in Etosha, home to Big Five game, a variety of mongoose and wildebeest among others, and endangered species such as the black rhino. Birdwatching is also good here, with over 340 species of bird such as flamingo, Bare-cheeked babbler, and eagles commonly sighted. There are opportunities for guests to participate in Onguma sunset drives as well as interpretive bush walks.

Guest accommodation at Onguma Bush Camp consists of 16 rooms, each with en-suite facilities and views of the waterhole.

The complex is fenced, and features a Games Room ideal for children as well as an outdoor pool. Interpretive game walks provide children with a fun and educational experience of the surrounding bushveld. No children under the age of 10 years are permitted on game drives, and no children under the age of 16 years are allowed to attend bush walks.

  • It was FANTASTIC! Beautifully organised, everything worked like clockwork. We agreed that we had the best support team ever (and we have experience) - all delightful, very professional and nothing was too much bother.

    It clearly couldn't have been a better route, such a wonderful mix of landscapes. And plenty of acclimatisation time. Nonetheless, I was glad of my summit oxygen.

    Kit excellent. Double good mattresses made for most comfortable trek camping ever. Tents v good. Mess tent pretty windproof, which was vital for enjoyment. Best camp loo ever!

    My favourite day was Shira Cathedral. Amazing.

  • Hi Lisa,

    The safari trip was excellent! The stay, the food and the people were all very nice. We were happy to have Ryan and Stanley as our game drive guides they brought us up close to the animals and Ryan gave very good information throughout.

    Would definitely recommend to friends who are interested in safaris :)

    Also, thanks much for your help, particularly keeping the room for my Brother and his wife they’ve enjoyed the safari very much too!

    Best regards,
    Woan Chyi

  • We had a fantastic time and all the arrangements worked perfectly.
    We were very impressed with the quality and service levels of all 4 locations visited and it was truly a holiday of a lifetime.
    Thank you to you and to Lisa for giving us this experience.
    Particular highlights for us – really the whole experience, but of particular impact:
    Breathtaking scenery at Cathedral Peak Hotel
    Rhino Ridge game drives incredible, thanks to guide (we had their head guide, Hala, who’s knowledge, enthusiasm, kindness, interaction, ability to spot wildlife was out of this world)
    Luxury of Rhino Ridge (shower, food, views, service)
    Immersion in nature, torch lit meal on last night and beach trip at Kosi Forest Lodge
    Level of service, quality of food throughout
