Etosha National Park, Namibia, April 2, 2022 / TRAVELINDEX / As Namibia celebrates 32 years of independence its tourism offering is growing each year. November 2022 will see a new high-end lodge opening on the eastern border of the famous Etosha National Park called Onguma Camp Kala. With its conical, mud plastered central tower resembling a termite mound and the whole camp elevated on wooden stilts, it is set to raise the benchmark to a whole new level.
The thatched camp will offer front row seats to all the wildlife action at the floodlit waterhole – with numerous vantage points to take it all in – be it the comfortable lounge, the intimate cocktail bar or the beautiful deck – shaded by day and warmed by a fire pit at night.
The dining area has an interactive ‘show’ kitchen and all-day pantry to ensure everyone feels right at home. Guests can while away the hours in absolute comfort in the water-level photographic hide. There is a fully equipped gym and spa treatment room with a quiet yoga deck to enjoy between game drives and bush walks. “Onguma Camp Kala‘s design has been inspired by the termite mounds so prolific in this part of Namibia as well as the textures and tones of Etosha Pan to ensure an authentic sense of place. We have brought in some of the best architects and interior designers to ensure the new camp is truly exceptional, has a light footprint on the earth and celebrates our incredible location” says Onguma Managing Partner Fritz Vorster.
