New luxury lodge to open in Etosha


A new high-end lodge will open on the eastern border of Namibia’s renowned Etosha National Park in November.

The thatched Onguma Camp Kala – with its conical, mud plastered central tower resembling a termite mound and the whole camp elevated on wooden stilts –  will offer front row seats to all the wildlife action at the floodlit waterhole.

The dining area will feature an interactive ‘show’ kitchen and all-day pantry. Guests can while away the hours in the water-level photographic hide. There will also be a fully equipped gym and spa treatment room with a quiet yoga deck.

“Onguma Camp Kala‘s design has been inspired by the termite mounds so prolific in this part of Namibia as well as the textures and tones of Etosha Pan to ensure an authentic sense of place. We have brought in some of the best architects and interior designers to ensure the new camp is truly exceptional, has a light footprint on the earth and celebrates our incredible location,” says Onguma Managing Partner, Fritz Vorster

Onguma Camp Kala will offer four guest suites, linked by raised walkways. Spacious and private, the open-plan guest suites have twin or king-sized beds with a state-of-the-art air-cooling system. 

Each suite will have its own deck with an outdoor shower, wood-fired hot tub (burning invasive tree species), loungers and a seating area with a fire pit. 

A walkway will lead to a private, shaded sala with a king-size outdoor day bed. 

No under 12’s are allowed unless the whole camp is booked for exclusive use. When booked for exclusive use the camp can accommodate up to 12 guests. 

Guests can fly-in directly to Onguma’s private airfield. Alternatively, Onguma is an easy, five-and-a-half-hour drive from Windhoek.
