They say the word "onguma" means "the place you don't want to leave", and after staying here, I couldn't agree more. Long, lazy afternoons and clear night skies are what it's all about. And of-course the sheer elegance of the place and the incredible surroundings make every day and night one you'll want to savour.
When the heat gets too much, a simple stroll to the rim flow pool is all it takes to cool you off, and I certainly needed to do just that. Sipping on a cooler while doing it also helped. The dining experience is of-course wonderful as well, but don't think it's all about relaxing. Activities included morning, afternoon and night game drives. These are a must, as four of the Big Five roam free on Onguma Game Reserve. This is upmarket camping all the way, and I left feeling spoiled, rejuvenated and alive!
