Introducing Onguma Media

We now have our very own Media department on the Onguma Nature Reserve! This is a dream come true, and probably a first for a private nature reserve bordering the famous Etosha National Park in the north west of Namibia.

It is quite a hectic schedule and production to keep such a team operational and to ensure we capture all that encompasses Onguma. There were various strategies at play when we initially started with the idea – but we finally decided to use this opportunity to showcase the complexities of what makes Onguma the trusted brand that it is today. We captured ALL. From the Maintenance crew, the Chef’s, to the individual Camp Managers, our APU team and everything in between.

Our little production team was met with wariness at first, and a lot of our team members weren’t comfortable being portrayed on camera, but once we explained what our bigger picture entailed, everyone quickly shared our enthusiasm & joined the wave. Very soon, whenever the Media Team arrived at a scene, everyone was camera ready & excited to share their stories.

Social media and the power of YouTube has grown at a tremendous rate over the past decade. We are also part of this growth and we feel that the world should know more about our brand. Onguma has always strived for authenticity and transparency across all our departments and this is a way for us to showcase our true selves.

The ultimate goal is to generate high quality docu-series style content by producing a 10-episode series made up of purpose-filled and passion driven episodes covering the daily happenings of a private nature reserve bordering the Etosha National Park in North West Namibia.

Onguma Nature Reserve covers 37 000 hectares of private wilderness situated on the eastern border of Etosha National Park. As well as being a popular safari lodge, the Onguma Nature Reserve provides a unique sanctuary for wildlife populations, including the critically endangered Black Rhino.

In 1993 black rhino numbers dropped by a staggering 96%, leaving researchers to estimate only 2,400 individuals were left in the wild. Namibia’s Ministry of Environment and Tourism decided to take matters into their own hands and set up the ambitious Black Rhino Custodianship Programme to bring the world’s black rhino populations back from the brink.

Since then, all black rhino in Namibia are state owned; the concept of Namibia’s Black Rhino Custodianship Program is that breeding populations of black rhino are relocated to suitable habitat where the landholders are willing and able to undertake the responsibility of providing care and security to them. Onguma Game Reserve is very proud to have been chosen to be one of these custodians and we take our duty to the rhino and other wildlife very seriously.

Sadly, during the last two years, we have seen a huge increase in the sophistication of the methods used to poach rhino. We are up against highly organized and sophisticated criminal networks and have therefore reacted with radical counter poaching initiatives to combat the poaching crisis. As a result, we now have a well-trained, fully equipped Anti-Poaching Unit patrolling day and night, 365 days a year, but we need your help to stay a step ahead of the poachers and protect our vulnerable black rhino from extinction.
