Ohorongo Tented Camp is a small camp, catering to guests in just four tents, so the experience and atmosphere around the camp is intimate and peaceful. While each guest has a private retreat in the shape of their own tented suite, there are a selection of common areas for festive gatherings, like mealtimes, sitting around the fire together, or cooling off in the pool. Ohorongo Tented Camp is located in the western region of the reserve, and it is magnificently built into the granite boulders of a rocky outcrop. There are four tented suites, elevated on wooden decks, with private terraces, outdoor showers, and comfortable in-room amenities. It is designed to keep you close to mother nature, wrapped under canvas, while offering you the modern luxuries of a lodge.
The accommodation at Ohorongo Tented Camp is designed to fit the environment and to keep nature close. Canvas tents are traditional and romantic, reminiscent of an old era of travel in Africa. These luxury tents incorporate ivory-coloured canvas, wooden floors, and glass doors, giving the structures security without losing the essence of an African adventure.
Ohorongo Game Reserve is a 40,000-hectare tract of wilderness located in the northwestern Namibian Highlands between Etosha National Park and Swakopmund. This protected area has been conserving the natural integrity of the unique landscape for over 50 years through a sustainable safari model that offers guests an opportunity to immerse and connect with an ancient land.
Namibia’s climate is for the most part, dry and sunny, which makes it a good year-round destination, but the temperatures in peak summer and winter are extreme and require preparation. The best time for game viewing is in winter – the driest months – from about July to October. Wildlife tends to gather around waterholes making them easier to spot and their movements easier to predict. Early mornings and night times can be very cold, and game drives will require headgear, gloves, and multiple layers to keep warm. The rainy season is short-lived and doesn’t ordinarily affect the desert regions in the west, but during January and February, the vegetated landscapes transform into greenery and old dormant riverbeds spring to life, which is a time of celebration in the country.
This is a wilderness retreat in a much loved and cherished part of the Namibian landscape, and the emphasis here is on connecting with family and friends while connecting with nature. Guests will be taken care of by attentive staff with typically warm, Namibian nature. It is about taking it slowly and relaxing, rejuvenating in the presence of the stars and the expansive landscape. There is as much opportunity for adventure and excitement as there is for down time in a comfortable, calming environment.
Rise with the sun and watch dawn break over the landscape while you enjoy something good to eat and discuss with your guide whether you’d like to head out on foot or on a game drive. Morning activity usually lasts three or four hours before you return to the camp feeling full of the beauty of Namibia and ready to refresh before lunch. The afternoon is yours, and you can spend it at the pool, enjoying a refreshment on your private deck with a good book and a pair of binoculars at the ready, or catching up on some sleep before venturing out to explore Ohorongo in the golden light of sunset. Every evening begins at the bar for a drink before tucking into a three-course culinary experience, rooted in local quality and sustainability. Mealtimes are an opportunity to come together and enjoy Ohorongo’s kitchen creations. Afterwards, hang around for a nightcap around the fire under the enormous stretch of stars overhead.
