reserve covers an area of 20 000ha and incorporates ecological substrata such as savannah, bushveld,
omuramba and dry pan. Age-old and well-worn migration routes, once used by elephant and buffalo wander
through Onguma’s three dry riverbeds. The reserve boasts over thirty different animal species.

Plains game roam freely on the reserve and predators although not easy to spot are nevertheless common residents of the
area. Onguma also became part of an innovative custodianship project relating to the black rhino. Six black
rhino were darted in Etosha National park and shipped to the reserve. Here they are protected and monitored.
More than 300 bird species can be viewed at Onguma. The reserve boasts the biggest breeding colony of
white-backed vultures in Namibia. During the summer months Onguma becomes a bird-watchers paradise
with thousands of species migrating to wetlands created by the seasonal rains.

DAY 2 - Sunday

parks in Africa. Its definitive feature is the Etosha Pan, a vast, shallow depression of approximately 5 000 km2.
Of the 114 mammal species found in the park, several are rare and endangered, such as the Black Rhino and
Black-Faced Impala.

The former is endemic to northwestern Namibia and South-western Angola. Etosha’s
current population of approximately 300 black rhinos represents one of the few growing populations in the
world. Etosha’s elephants are reputed to be of the largest in Africa, the tallest ones measuring up to 4m at the
shoulder. Their tusks are however relatively small, due to genetic defects and mineral deficiencies in their diet.
