Things to do at Little Ongava

Activities at Little Ongava revolve around day and night wildlife-viewing drives and walks with experienced guides all on the private 30 000-hectare Ongava Game Reserve. Daily excursions into the neighbouring Etosha National Park are exciting wildlife experiences while the hide at neighbouring Ongava Lodge’s waterhole provides superb photographic opportunities.

Game drives on Ongava Game Reserve

Guided morning and afternoon/evening game drives take place on the private Ongava Game Reserve. Wildlife on the reserve is diverse with especially good lion and rhino populations. Private vehicles can be booked at an extra cost (subject to availability).

Excursions into Etosha National Park

Full- or half-day guided morning and afternoon game drives are available in Etosha, Namibia’s prime savannah wilderness area (with a picnic); see the massive saltpan as well as the perennial springs that provide the water required by the Park’s high-density big game population – including elephant.

Guided Nature Walks

Offered seasonally and subject to an available walking guide, nature walks through the area take in the abundant array of life, small and large; with a chance of potentially tracking rhino.


A hide is a fantastic place to while the hours away up close and personal with wildlife slaking its thirst at a waterhole. This arid environment where little water occurs makes this a popular drinking spot for game.
