The lodge is built along a crest of a hill, with wonderful views onto the plains below. Little Ongava's main area houses the restaurant and bar. It lends itself to relaxed, stylish dining under a star or moonlit Namibian sky. This section of the lodge has the best views of the the near-by waterhole.

Accommodation at Little Ongava comprises of three spacious suites. Each has it's own en-suite bathroom, air-conditioning, fan, tea/coffee station, mini-bar and an in-room safe. Mosquito nets are fitted to the windows. Outside there is a plunge pool, an additional outdoor shower, and a 'sala' for you to unwind. There is 24hr (220v) mains electricity supply.

The Ongava Reserve has resident white and black rhino. Take the opportunity to see both of these rare animals on one of the Reserve's guided tours. Lion, elephant, cheetah, oryx, springbok and hartebeest can also be seen at both the Reserve and Etosha Park. Guests at Little Ongava share a dedicated guide and Land Rover, ensuring the optimum nature experience at one of Africa's great wildlife destinations.

Activities include day and night game drives in open 4x4 vehicles into the Okaukuejo area of Etosha National Park. The Reserve also has it's own hides and walks with armed guides.

The reserve attracts many species of bird including 10 of Namibia's endemic or near-endemic species such as the violet wood-hoopoe, carp's tit, red-necked falcon and bare-cheeked babbler. The Namaqua sandgrouse, short-toed rock thrush, acacia pied barbet, double-banded courser and yellow-bellied eremomela can also be observed.
