Ongongo Waterfall Campsite WELCOMES YOU

Ongongo means “magical” in the Herero language. It is indeed a truly magical if not spectacular place. Set in a small canyon in the far northwest of Namibia, a completely barren landscape with some villages close by – you will find permanent water simply oozing out of the mountain. The water is relatively warm which allows for swimming year-round.
The Ongongo Waterfall Campsite is situated 6km from Warmquelle. Warmquelle is about 90km north of Palmwag on the C43. The nearest fuel station is at Sesfontein – Alternatively Palmwag.
Access is by 2 x 4 vehicles, but with caution as the road is rocky and takes some time to navigate through. 2 x 4 drivers are not advised to take their vehicles into the gorge, which is 4x4 access only. Vehicles can be left in a parking area at the top and equipment carried down. We highly recommend travelling with 4x4 vehicles!

We offer:
• waterfall and crystal clear water all year round
• 10 luxury campsites including
- private ablution facilities
- hot showers
- shaded area with washbasin
