Featuring only four thatch-and-canvas chalets, each guest at Onguma Tree Top Camp is treated like royalty. An assortment of crisp linens, cosy down duvets and snug throws will keep you warm at night, while each chalet has a private outside shower providing the most glamorous way to wash up in the bush. Each unit also has its own private deck with similar views to that of the main area, and it’s here that guests get a true taste of African siestas – and where catching up on reading can prove to be difficult on account of the mesmerising sights and sounds around camp. The birds and animals visiting the waterhole quickly become part of the fabric of your days and with game like giraffe, zebra and lion coming to quench their thirst, there’s never a dull moment.
Every conceivable wilderness experience has been incorporated into the camp’s offering – from being able to partially open one side of your chalet to really let the natural surroundings into your living spaces to a central area where the restaurant not only serves scrumptuous fare but also provides optimum views of the waterhole.
In the culinary department, every taste is catered for and the flexible three-course dinners offer a choice between traditional African fare and European cuisine. Onguma Tree Top camp is truly the place to be if you want a couple of relaxed days in-between a busy travelling schedule, without forfeiting the privilege to experience the intoxicating sights, sounds and smells of the bush. Intimate and exclusive, it’s the perfect hideaway for small groups of family or friends, and a chance to really connect with the bounty of this continent.
Onguma Tree Top camp allows visitors to savour the vast offerings of Africa – from its subliminal sunsets to the sweeping views and the range of exceptional game drives on offer.
