Our three-night stay at Onguma Treetop camp was one of the highlights of our two week trip to Etosha. We stayed in one of the four beautiful tree houses, built on stilts that overlook the waterhole. The rooms are amazing and we're beyond expectations and totally open to the bush, although you can zip down an outer wall if you...

Pssst... don't tell anyone, but that is one of my special camps too. I love the easy accommodation style and 'in nature' feel. I have taken note of your comment regarding the guides and will speak to the team. I am so glad you had a good time and we hope you visit us again - maybe next time we...

Treetop Camp is a very special place. There are only four rooms, so there are only a maximum of 8 guests there at any given time. No children are allowed as there is no fence around the camp. The restaurant, lounge, deck and rooms are all on a raised wooden platform on stilts, which results in great views over the...

This lodge is just outside etosha national park. There are different camps within onguma, but the tree top was wonderful. With just four tents we had individual attention from the manager of the camp. The tents were built on stilts overlooking a water hole and you could leave the from of the tent open at night to watch the stars...

We spent two nights here towards the end if our three week trip to Namibia and as such I will compare this lodge to the many others we stayed at during our travells for overall experience and value for money. Prior to our stay here, we had also been fortunate to spend 4 nights at Onguma tented lodge - both...

The small group safari that took us through Namibia included two nights at Onguma Treetop Camp, and I don't think we could have found a better place to stay. The small size of the camp suited our group of seven perfectly. Each elevated room is sufficiently far from its neighbor to ensure privacy but with easy access to the main...

With just four rooms this treetop camp is quite possibly the most exclusive camp we've stayed in. The rooms are elevated above the ground with an excellent view of the waterhole, which I appreciated more at night when the elephants came to visit. Being above ground, the lodge insists that it is safe to sleep with the canvas rolled up,...

Words cannot describe the Onguma Tree Top Camp. There are only 4 bungalows. We have 3 of them and the other is empty. All four bungalows face the lit water hole. We cannot venture out after sundown and before sunrise because of the wild animals. We have been treated to the most incredible view of the animals coming down to...
