Day One: Etosha National Park
Meet your pilot at Eros Airport and commence your flight to the Etosha National Park, one of Africa’s most diverse wildlife treasures. Your lodge is one of Namibia’s best-kept secrets and awards you the opportunity to experience Africa in all its beauty and diversity.

Activities include a guided nature walk or a game drive, where you may also see the endangered Rhino, which has been relocated onto Onguma to ensure their survival and encourage population growth. Having returned to the lodge, enjoy watching game species at the flood-lit waterhole while being spoilt at an unforgettable dinner setting.

Day Two: Exploring Etosha National Park
After an early breakfast, travel into the Etosha National Park in an open game drive vehicle and enjoy a full-day guided game drive. Covering an area over 22’270km², it belongs to one of the largest parks in Africa and has unique highlights that no other park on earth can equal. The park belongs to Africa’s oldest game parks, having been declared a game reserve as far back as 1907.
Its most defining feature is the Etosha Pan, a vast, shallow depression that shimmers with mirages during the heat of the day and which offers unsurpassed photographic opportunities. Of the 114 different animal species found in the park, several are rare and endangered and include species such as the Black Rhino, black-faced Impala, Eland and Namibia’s smallest antelope, the Damara Dik-Dik.

The lodge allows views onto the serene mountain and rugged desert landscapes and offers a highly sophisticated desert experience for the African connoisseur who likes to spend time in nature.
