Little Ongava Lodge Game Viewing
Etosha is Namibia’s premier game viewing destination. It is one of Africa’s largest game parks being nearly the size of Switzerland. Large herds of plains game concentrate around the waterholes in the dry season making for exciting game viewing. Species that can be seen year-round include Elephant, Lion, Leopard, Cheetah, Giraffe, Zebra, Wildebeast, Springbok, Gemsbok, Kudu and the diminutive Damara Dik-Dik.
Birdlife is also good with Ostrich and raptors in abundance. Local specials include the Short-toed Rockthrush, Hautlaub’s Francolin, Rockrunner, Rüppell’s Parrot, White-tailed Shrike and Chestnut Weaver.
A highlight at Ongava is that it is one of the few private game reserves in southern Africa where you have a chance of seeing both Black and White Rhino. For those who enjoy close wildlife encounters, tracking White Rhino on foot with an armed guide is a highlight not to be missed. Ongava Game Reserve also has a good population of Lion, Eland, Hartmann’s Mountain Zebra, Black-faced Impala and a number of other antelope species.
