Little Ongava sits in an exceptional position on a rise, in the vast Ongava Game Reserve. This is one of Namibia’s most luxurious safari destinations, bordering the Etosha National Park.
The exclusivity of this stunning wilderness retreat is enhanced by the fact that there are only three private houses in total. Each one boasts a plunge-pool, private sala and an en-suite bathroom, which includes a bath with spectacular views of a nearby waterhole. The dining room shares this outstanding view and guests can enjoy delicious food under the African stars to the sounds of the water-hole's night-time visitors. Little Ongava guests can venture out into the acacia-strewn grasslands of Etosha National Park in search of the prolific wildlife - lion, elephant, gemsbok, springbok, red hartebeest and white and black rhino - that inhabits the landscape. The Etosha Pan is particularly worth seeing after the summer rains when the parched wasteland becomes alive with colour and millions of flamingos turn the horizon pink.
There are numerous hides overlook waterholes in the park - good news for wildlife photographers or those simply wishing to sit in silence and observe the animals in their natural surroundings.
