Ongama has other accommodation options: for instance, the luxury Tented Camp with only seven tents, each with inside and outside shower, bathtub and twin basins, looking out over an active waterhole; and the rustic Tree Top Camp, perfect for adventurous people, with just four treehouses built on stilts with outside showers overlooking an active waterhole. The most luxurious option is the Moroccan-style Onguma Fort with its imposing main building and luxury, spacious suites. Change from the Bush Camp if you don’t want to be among families and require greater luxury, more adventure or an exclusive ambience.

A superb site, wonderful location, delightful staff and food - excellent. Onguma is a wonderful lace. Sun downer was very enjoyable - a very good game drive (complete with lion and cheetah as highlights) and a real African sunset. Wow!
