About Onguma Fort

​The Fort is unlike any other and the only one of its kind in Namibia. It is built in the perfect spot to give guests one of the best sunset views in the whole of Namibia – overlooking the beautiful scarceness of the Etosha Pans, decorated only with its wild animals and hundreds of Camel Thorn trees. As you enter The Fort, you'll notice the towering walls and stone-cladded features of it's exterior, along with a huge tower, providing elevated views across the Etosha and Fisher's Pan. The Fort's design has a classical African feel combined with a touch of Moroccan and Indian influence, characterised by a selection of the most beautiful antique windows and doors.

Rooms at Onguma Fort

The Fort consists of The Sultan Suite, which is located within the Main Tower Building. 11 Bush Suites and 1 honeymoon Suite, all situated adjacent to the Main Fort extending on both sides to the south and the north. Every Bush Suite is completely private and about 50 meters apart from one another and is equipped with a bar fridge, and an air-conditioner for those warmer days. The spacious bathroom has both an inside shower as well as an outside shower area. From every area of the room, wooden decks lead you towards the outside seating area and sun loungers for just relaxing and enjoying the extraordinary view.

In addition, the one and only Sultan Suite is situated inside the Main Tower of the main complex. It has a large beautifully designed bedroom that leads into a lounge area and out onto a small private viewing deck. The lounge is equipped with a satellite television system, a bar fridge and telephone facilities. And for those warm evenings, you have an air-conditioner as well.

Etosha

Etosha is a 22 750km² wildlife sanctuary in Namibia – one of Africa’s most stable and accessible countries. Etosha, meaning ‘place of dry water’, and refers to a flat calcrete depression (or pan) of about 5 000km². The ‘Pan’ (overlooked by the Onguma Reserve) provides a great, parched, silver-white backdrop of shimmering mirages to an area of semi-arid savannah grassland and thorn scrub. The pan itself contains water only after very good rains and sometimes for only a few days each year, but is enough to stimulate the growth of a blue-green algae which lures thousands of flamingos. There are close on 114 species of mammals in Etosha. They include the black-faced impala and the threatened black and white rhino.
