A Rich Diversity Of Colour And Song In Our Skies

Birds of a feather flock forever in the skies over Ongava. We’ve identified more than 300 avian species in the reserve, all the way from the little sociable weaver that works so hard to build its giant communal nests, to the flightless ostrich that dances on the plains.

You’ve got a good chance of seeing raptors circling for prey, solitary owls perched on branches, kingfishers dipping into waterholes, Lilac-breasted rollers flitting to show off their colours, and many more of our indigenous species.

Our strategic location, bordering Etosha National Park, means that we’re on the flight path for thousands of migratory birds, adding to the rich diversity of colour and song that will engage your senses on a birdwatching expedition.
