Set on the crest of a hill within the Ongava Private Game Reserve, Little Ongava encompasses spectacular views of the vast African savannah plains. Brushing against the Etosha National Park’s border, the lodge consists of only three Luxury Villas, each affording a view of the active waterhole, offering guests unrivalled privacy and seclusion.
Large herds of plains game converge around the waterhole, quietly pursued by their predators. Day and night game drives through Ongava and Etosha reveal grazing gemsbok and kudu, elusive leopards and herds of elephant ambling through the mopane woodlands. Track black and white rhino on foot, experiencing the thrill of up-close encounters with these sturdy herbivores. An abundance of birdlife flock to the area, from the tiny short-toed rock thrush, to the daunting birds of prey circling the skies.
The lodge sleeps a maximum of six guests, with each of the Luxury Villas featuring a private plunge pool, en-suite bathroom with both indoor and outdoor showers overlooking the waterhole, and a sala for leisurely days. The dining area and lounge share panoramic vistas of the wilderness and waterhole.
