          Ongava Tented Camp is absolutely beautiful. Tasteful, rustic decor and lovely staff but one would expect a hot shower after a cold game drive. The solar water heating system does not work especially on a rainy day when one would most like a hot shower.

          Hi Cameron, im looking forward to my first Namibian trip next June 2016. We are in the process of planning at the moment and our agent has recommended you as a destination for a short stopover on the way to Vic Falls. Im interested in doing some flyfishing for tigerfish if possible. Can you accommodate this? I will not have my own gear as this will be the only oppertunity to fish on the trip. Regards John
