Okonjima Bush Camp is more intimate than its sister property, the Plains Camp and is set approximately three kilometres away in a wilderness area. Okonjima is home to the AfriCat Foundation, a non-profit organisation, committed to long-term conservation of Namibia’s large carnivores.
Okonjima Bush Camp is set on the Okonjima Nature Reserve, a privately-managed 200 square kilometre protected area. The Bush Camp features eight thatched African-style chalets and one honeymoon suite.
All rooms enjoy a Sala with comfortable day beds, from which to enjoy the sights and sounds of the African bush and a miniature waterhole/bird bath where it is not unusual for smaller antelope or warthogs to drink. Amenities include a mini-fridge, roof-fans and tea and coffee making facilities. The honeymoon suites also boast a bathtub and open-air shower.
Activities offered at Okonjima include game drives to track cheetah, leopard, hyena or wild dog. There are also a number of self guided walks possible.
- ‘The Lapa’ containing a bar and lounge
- Swimming pool
- Complimentary Wi-Fi in the communal area
- Indoor fireplace
Please note no children under the age of 12 are permitted at Okonjima Bush Camp.
The following optional activities are available at Okonjima Bush Camp:
Large predator tracking
Embark on a game drive in the 200 square kilometre Okonjima Nature Reserve, searching for one of Okonjima’s rehabilitated animals using radio-tracking. You will search for one animal at a time; choose from cheetah, leopard, wild dog or spotted hyena. Your focus will be on finding this animal but you may see other wildlife en route including giraffe, jackal, warthog, antelope and perhaps even another predator! When found, wild dog, hyena and cheetahs can be approached on foot.
AfriCat Carnivore Centre
AfriCat is a non-profit organisation set up to conserve and protect threatened cheetah, leopard, and other wild carnivores of Namibia. On this tour, visitors will be able to observe some of this programme at work and learn more about these amazing and beautiful animals. You will get to meet some of the animals kept in Carnivore Care at AfriCat taking a game drive around their large enclosures. If you are lucky, you may even spot our sponsored cheetah, Dune!
Self-guided walking trails
Okonjima has a choice of three trails, ranging from 3-5km in length. Enjoy the solitude of exploring on foot, perhaps spotting some antelope or warthog as you go.
Dune, our adopted cheetah
We are proud at Discover the World to sponsor Dune, a cheetah who is currently living in the AfriCat Carnivore Care Centre.
The AfriCat Foundation is dependent on support to maintain their various programmes. If you would like to support AfriCat yourself, click here for more details. You can donate money or adopt an animal.
