Onguma Tree-Top Camp is a small, intimate camp in Onguma Game Reserve, which is situated on the eastern border of Etosha National Park, Namibia. The Camp is designed for an intimate wildlife experience, catering for a maximum of eight guests. It offers a wonderful secluded retreat for romantic couples, small groups of friends, or a family. Tree Top is ideal for the exclusive use of small parties travelling together. The camp is built on wooden stilts overlooking one of the most beautiful waterholes in the Onguma Game Reserve and offers complete seclusion in the heart of
The Namibian wilderness. The birds and animals visiting the waterhole quickly become part of the fabric of your days. The guest areas consist of a deck overlooking the waterhole, a lounge, dining room and interactive kitchen. The staff will take care of your every need, while you luxuriate in the splendour of the camp.
Onguma Tree-Top Camp consists of four thatched rooms with canvas walls, offering magnificent views of the surrounding wilderness. Guests can partially open one side of their rooms to let the natural surroundings into their living spaces. Each room has its own private en-suite bathroom and outdoor shower, as well as a private deck with a view over the waterhole. From the decks, guests can view the constant stream of birds and animals to the waterhole, experience the intoxicating sights, sounds and smells of the bush, and witness sublime sunsets. The rooms are luxurious, with crisp linen, down duvets, and cosy blankets for colder days.
The Reserve boasts over thirty different animal species, including lion, giraffe, zebra, plains game, leopard, hyena and the endangered black rhino. Predators, although not easy to spot, are nevertheless common residents of the area. Lions are frequently seen and often heard. There is a healthy black rhino and leopard population and hyenas are often spotted. There are over 300 bird species at Onguma. The Reserve boasts the biggest breeding colony of white-backed vultures in Namibia. During the summer months Onguma becomes a bird-watchers’ paradise, with thousands of species migrating to wetlands created by the seasonal rains.
Onguma offers guests an incredible opportunity to learn more about the elusive Black Rhino. With numbers dropping and poaching in Africa increasing, a Rhino Research Drive on Onguma is a rare chance to find out more about these endangered creatures. The three-hour drive with a resident researcher takes guests to collect data at rhino middens, download images from the camera traps situated at popular waterholes and inspect dung to find out where the animals are grazing. Due to the dense terrain, black rhino sightings are not guaranteed, but searching and tracking them is all part of the experience.

We travelled with Falcon Safaris in Zimbabwe and Botswana for 16 days. Falcon designed a wonderful trip with private guide to the most interesting sites in both countries. The organization of the whole trip was excellent, flights within the country, accommodation and activites. The guides were very knowledgable and told us a lot about the countries, their history, people, economy and much more. Wevisited the Great Zimbabwe Ruins, the Victoria Falls and a number of national parks in both countries.
Rhino tracking was a real adventure! We had tremendous further game drives and saw very many animals - we did the Big Five. We had much more activities than planned and enjoyed very much.We strongly recommend Falcon Safaris to everyone planning a trip to Southern Africa and East Africa.
Our Consultant Vimbai was very helpful and accommodating. We stayed at the Elephant hills hotel which was nothing short of amazing.Our activities included a helicopter flight, dinner cruise as well as a morning game drive. All the activities were absolutely amazing.
We worked with Gertrude to schedule and organize everything and she did an excellent job. I asked a lot of questions via e-mail and she answered everyone in a timely helpful manner. Our guide at Victoria Falls was also great. He met us at the airport, provided a thoughtful tour of the Falls and got us to our next guide in Botswana. Our lodgings at River View Lodge were just as described- very comfortable and excellent food. All the staff were so pleasant and helpful. If I had to do it again I would arrange a morning boat ride as well. We only did the sunset boat rides and they were the high point of our entire trip- we saw so many animals and our guide was very knowledgeable. Just a great experience. Our lodgings at Oddball's Enclave was rustic and we loved it. So great to disconnect from the world for a bit. Leo, our guide, was the best - got us out and about, saw fantastic wildlife and got back to camp safely each time. Doc manages the camp so well. This whole trip was planned and organized by Falcon Safaris and we could not have been happier.
Falcon safaris have given my the correct advice with excellent service. The only suggestion will be to work closer with the lodges to confirm bookings as soon as possible. We have booked and pay our deposit a year in advance. We have only receive our final convermation from Chobe Safari lodge a week before departure. I do realize its not within your controle but with limit alternatives and a group of 14 people it becomes an issue to find alternative accomodation if the booking was cancelled.
Our passion for Africa and her rich diversity is what drives us to deliver superior itineraries for you. With over 30 years’ unrivalled experience, we believe your trip should be as unique as you are and so we tailor-make them for you as an individual.
