Oshivelo Farming is a sustainable project founded to create jobs on a large scale for the local Oshivelo community
The 500-hectare vegetable farm sources water from the property’s boreholes to irrigate the produce
Today, the farm is one of the top five vegetable producers in the country, employing 180 local people on a permanent basis
Why we love it
Onguma has built a hide at water-level enabling unrivalled viewing of wild animals up-close. Entirely unobserved, this is a brilliant opportunity to calmly enjoy nature and take some impressive photos.
