Onguma Plains Camp

Onguma Plains Camp is a uniquely elaborate camp that truly transports you out of this world. Resembling a fort with its Arabic influences in décor, it can be a little over-the-top, yet we find it to be quite enchanting and fun. The 12 ‘mini suites’ each resemble individual forts and are the perfect size for families. A lovely separate honeymoon suite is located within the tower of the quirky main complex. The swimming pool has chairs in it for you to relax on with a drink, and the pool deck overlooks a water hole that brings in game to the sparse Etosha Pans.

All Onguma camps offer morning or afternoon game drives, bush walks in the private concession, and rhino research drives where you learn about and track black and white rhino. The Onguma Reserve generally boasts good game-viewing with frequent lion and leopard spottings. This is a very unique camp and may not please everyone’s decorative taste, but it’s a quality product that provides an excellent safari experience while being the highest-end property within the Onguma Reserve.
