Welcome to this private nature reserve
Our Comfortable Rooms
Guided Game Drive
Every afternoon we have a guided tour in an open top 4×4 vehicle through the extensive grounds of Onjala. On the private game reserve, you are likely to see giraffes, zebra, various antelopes, ostriches and warthogs. With luck you could even spot a well-camouflaged leopard.
In winter (April to August), we depart at 4:00 pm, in summer (September to March) at 5:00 pm. The departure point is at the car park, and the excursion takes 2 to 3 hours. By request, we can head off to a stunning sundowner spot, where you can relax with a drink of your choice, and enjoy a breathtaking view of the sun setting over the Namibian landscape.
Reservations for a game drive should be done timorously, as the available seats on the vehicle are limited to 12 persons. Please pack sunscreen, a thick jacket, and possibly a raincoat if any clouds are in sight.
Conveniently located close to Windhoek, Zensations Spa at Onjala is truly worth the short drive, for a relaxing day of treatments or even to spend the night, and wake up refreshed and surrounded by nature.
Zelda Soltau has been in the wellness industry for the past 21 years, and together with her team of well-qualified therapists, they will ensure that you receive only the best of treatments, and are left feeling pampered and renewed after every treatment.
Each treatment is tailored to specific needs with a large range, from anti-ageing, balancing and detoxing to restoring, hydrating and firming. Guests can enjoy facial treatments, body massages, body wraps and hand and foot treatments, as well as several different water treatments.
This haven for relaxation uses Africology, a product inspired by the traditional African healers, and the natural wisdom they have accumulated, celebrating Africa’s vibrant heritage and plant life. Africology captures the energetic essence of local plants, and harnesses them to work in harmony with the body’s energy fields.
The best way to enjoy the untouched nature of Onjala is by exploring it on foot at your leisure. You can hike anywhere on Onjala, as long and as far as you wish. The boundaries of the area are marked by a fence. For your safety please remain within the fence.
To make it easier for you, we have created a variety of routes. With the help of our map you can compile your own route, and turn this beautiful experience into an individual one.
The routes are marked with letters and numbers at the crossings, commensurate with the map. A free trail map is available at the front desk. You can, of course, also walk without using a map. We have a white, green and blue route.
Just follow the appropriate color dots on the trail markers. The white route is round about 6 km long, the green 6 km and the blue route 14 km.
Have you ever wondered of what the Milky Way consists and how it is formed? Why do stars sometimes twinkle or how far are the stars away from the earth? Then observe at Onjala under guidance double stars, star clusters and nebulae under the crystal clear sky of Africa with one of the world’s best telescopes – a ‘Zeiss refractor’.
Depending on the season, we show you the rings of the planet Saturn, the crescent shape of Venus or Jupiter with its banded clouds and its four major moons.
When the moon is seen in the evening sky you may watch the craters and mountains of the moon with an incredible clarity.
