Onguma Fort
Etosha

Ongama Fort is Located on the 84,000 acre Ongama Reserve to the east of Namibia’s Etosha National Park. This impressive and unique property is perfect for those who like their creature comforts! There is an exotic feel to the lodge with its Moroccan theme and striking architecture. It is an ideal spot to enjoy Etosha. Although it is technically ‘outside’ of Etosha, there is still a good amount of game that frequents the waterhole in front of camp including warthog and springbok. 

It is aptly named the Fort with its main turret and mini turrets which make up the 12 rooms at the lodge. They are well spaced ensuring privacy and seclusion. There is a complimentary golf buggy which is used to safely ferry guests home from dinner at the main dining room in at night.  Each room (mini turret) has been delightfully and colourfully decorated in terracotta with lovely spots of bright colour throughout.  As well as the super-sized beds, the room enjoys air-conditioning, a mini bar and a fireplace for those cold winter evenings.

Inside the main building, there is also an air-conditioned Fort Suite, affectionately referred to as the ‘Sultan Suite’ which is a great option for honeymooners.  The main area continues with the Moroccan theme with heavy carved antique doors and lanterns, comfy sofas and brightly coloured cushions around the fireplace. The main attraction has to be the water feature which flows as little waterfalls through the courtyard and into the swimming pool with outside bar.

Activities at Onguma include morning and afternoon game drives in Etosha National Park. There are also night drives in the Onguma Reserve and for those wishing to stretch their legs, morning bush walks make a lovely alternative.

I had a very lovely time and was looked after splendidly. My first visit to India could not have been better, save for being longer! But I shall return at some point and I shall look to you to make the arrangements.

Difficult to articulate just how good the service from you and your team really was. We know you will continue to do well and hope we have the chance to seek your assistance again before long.
- Mr & Mrs Manson, North India
So many highlights to choose from! The hotels were amazing but Maya Villa was a highlight… I loved just hanging out in the hammock reading my book and watching the peacocks chase the cows!
- Krista Weir, Sri Lanka
Without question, you put together the best trip I have ever taken. We were shown around like visiting dignitaries, the hotels were fantastic and the itinerary was just right. Everybody I know will hear about how amazing Ampersand is!
- Leslie Siben, India
I thought the Ampersand team was outstanding. We couldn’t have hoped for anything more.
- Mr Geoffrey Johnson, India
We had a wonderful holiday - everything was perfect. Thank you for helping us to make a thoughtful plan to enjoy and make most out of our trip. The places we visited, the guides, the transportation and driver, the hotels selected... Everything was great!
- Jaime Benitez, South India
Everything you did for us whilst we were away was hugely appreciated, and Ampersand has been exemplary in every way. I'll always recommend you!
- Mr Richard Stoughton, Sri Lanka
Ampersand’s details preparation, attention to detail and interaction before and during our trip show exactly why good travel agents have a role in today’s internet/direct booking age. Shalmali was a delight to work with – before and during our trip.
- Mr David Wallace, North India
