Ongula Village Homestead is strategically situated between Ondangwa (one of the oldest towns in the northern region of Namibia) and Eenhana, alongside a traditional live Owambo Homestead (or Village).

Ongula is the first property in Namibia to offer visitors and travellers a realistic introduction to the centuries-old lifestyle and culture of the Owambo people. Here guests will be shown, and can participate in routine tasks such as harvesting and preparing grain, working with livestock or cooking on an open fire, and serving local traditional meals and drinks, gaining as they do so an intimate insight into life in this region.

There may also be opportunities to discover aspects of life beyond the daily chores – to witness local events and ceremonies such as a traditional wedding or court proceedings, to visit open-air markets or local small-scale business ventures where the changes brought about by the relentless march of technology can be seen in its impact on traditional customs, beliefs and quality of life.

This is a unique opportunity to learn first-hand how ancient tribal life is coming to terms with the 21st century, and living successfully with it.

  • Drive on the good tarred B1 road towards Ondangwa. About 8 km before reaching Ondangwa, turn right on to the tarred M121 road, sign-posted to Oniipa and Eenhana. After about 29 km, turn left on to the D3670 gravel road to Eembahu. You will see a sign-post for Ongula Homestead Lodge*. Follow the gravel road for 4 km, then turn left on to a sandy road. After 300 metres you will arrive at the Lodge on the right-hand side.
