Stay at Ongava

Inspired by the soul-stirring natural beauty of Ongava, our quartet of lodges — Ongava Lodge, Little Ongava, Ongava Tented Camp, and Anderssons at Ongava — have been designed with the utmost comfort and luxury in mind.

Above and beyond their distinctive look and feel, each lodge is an experience in itself, with every detail honed to enhance your well-being and make you feel at home.

To stay at Ongava, whichever lodge you choose (and many of our guests choose more than one) is to stay in two worlds at once. The majesty and grandeur of the Namibian bush, and a place where your every need is accommodated.

A new lexicon of luxury

“Wayakurua!” In the Otjiherero language of our Namibian heartland, it means: Welcome.

And at Ongava, welcome means the warm heart of African hospitality, reimagined and redefined in a new lexicon of luxury.

In keeping with our respect for the natural environment, our lodges are built and crafted from indigenous materials, blending the age-old ways of the bush with touches of contemporary flair.

From the moment you are greeted on arrival, from the moment you walk into your suite, we want you to fall in love with Ongava, to feel the same spark of exhilaration, the same rush of awe, that we feel as custodians of its timeless wonders.

And wherever you choose to stay at Ongava, the memories of this magical space will stay with you, for life. Wayakurua!

Guided by expert rangers, on vehicle or on foot, an expedition into Ongava’s wide-open spaces will open your senses to the wonders of the bush and the fascinating lore of the land.

Space and time are the ultimate luxuries at Ongava. Space to reflect on the beauty and wonder of nature, and time to explore a world that moves to a different pace, a different set of rhythms.

Here, where nature is first, your love of the wild and all it represents will soon become second nature.

Spaces of the heart

Inspired by the shapes, shades, and textures of the African savannah, Ongava’s distinctively designed lodges are habitats of the heart and soul.

Each lodge, each room, is furnished and styled with individual flair, bringing the captivating spirit of the bush into your own private space.

But humans are social creatures too, and the open areas of our lodges, overlooking prime game-watching spots, are ideal for dining and unwinding in the very best of company.
