As the dry conditions on Ongava Private Reserve persist, the camp waterhole continues to attract good numbers of wildlife. It is not uncommon to see up to five different species congregating around the waterhole during the heat of the day. We have noticed an influx in eland numbers at the waterhole this month too, not to mention very regular visits from the resident pride of lions.
Wildlife sightings a little further away from camp have been outstanding as well, with our guests returning to camp very happy after their game drives.
Game drives into Etosha have also been really productive and popular with our guests, as these frequently included sightings of elephant, which are currently concentrated in the central areas of Etosha and will move north once the rains arrive.
This month Ongava Tented Camp staff put in a lot of extra effort to make our guests’ visits more special by setting up great bush dinners in scenic spots, always beautifully lit by soft candle light.
