Onguma The Fort, Etosha National Park

As well as one of the best sunset views in the country, Onguma The Fort lays claim to incredible big game viewing with a prime location on the private Onguma Nature Reserve.

More Moroccan riad in design than classic safari camp, Onguma The Fort stands out against the stark Etosha landscape with its massive raw walls, tower and beautiful stone-cladding. Guests are accommodated in 12 suites, each of which sits 50 metres apart to ensure total privacy. Amenities include spacious bathrooms (indoor and outdoor showers included), air-conditioning and wooden decks where you can soak in the sensational sunsets from comfy loungers. 

Bordering the renowned Etosha National Park, the reserve is 34,000 hectares of pure, game-dense wilderness. When you’re not enjoying guided game drives and interpretive bush walks on the reserve, you can while the hours away by the pool, in the cosy sitting room or library. The property’s fantastic water-level hide is the perfect spot to capture up-close photographs of passing impala, zebra and lions.

  • We have travelled with TUTC six times, the most recent was to New Zealand last year. The trip was very well organised as usual, with excellent accommodation and a wide variety of experiences. We had booked to go to Australia with them this year but due to Covid this was cancelled, Ultimate handled the situation very professionally and promptly refunded the whole of our deposit without any quibble.
