OKONJIMA

Half an hour’s drive off the main road between Windhoek and Etosha, Okonjima, in the Omboroko Mountains in the Waterberg Plateau, is home to The AfriCat Foundation. Initially a cattle farm, as Namibia grew as a tourist destination cattle herds were exchanged for more interesting wildlife, changing the face of Okonjima as well as that of carnivore conservation! This is a non-profit organisation, committed to long-term conservation of Namibia's large carnivores, especially cheetahs and leopards. A visit to Okonjima will give you an opportunity to witness some of AfriCat's work, and is a very worthwhile experience. It will also give you the opportunity to stay at one of their two camps, Plains Camp which is the original family homestead and Bush Camp, a luxury lodge. Activities at Okonjima include tracking rehabilitated carnivores on foot, visiting the AfriCat Carnivore Care & Information Centre or tracking leopards from a game–viewing vehicle. Okonjima also offers a guided Bushman Trail. Birding and Game drives are offered on request and if guests stay longer than 2 days. It is also accessible by plane, equipped with its own air strip.

PLAINS CAMP
Plains Camp design honours the Okonjima cattle-farming history. The 14 Standard rooms and 10 spacious View rooms, all have a view across the Okonjima grass plains.

BUSH CAMP & THE BUSH SUITE
The accommodations at Okonjima Bush Camp consist of 10 spacious, comfortable thatch rooms, all with private bathroom facilities. There is canvas on one side of the room that can be opened up to see the views. The dining room, lounge and bar make up the main area, which is also under thatch. This overlooks a waterhole, which is lit up at night. There is also a small swimming pool. 500m from Bush Camp, situated in a secluded wilderness area, the Bush Suite overlooks a waterhole and is nestled in the open Acacia thorn-veld. The Bush Suite has 2 separate bedrooms under a magnificent thatched roof, which together can accommodate a family or small group of 4. The living space boasts a spacious lounge, a dining area under-roof or outside under natural shade and an open, wood-burning fireplace. The Bush Suite's uniquely designed pool adds a wonderful ambiance with its crystal clear blue water on the edge of the wilderness.

THE VILLA
The Villa has 2 separate, private suites, together with 2 select, en-suite bedrooms in the ‘Main House’, which together can accommodate groups of up to 8 adults and 4 children. The living spaces are punctuated by a spacious lounge and dining area with an open, wood-burning fireplace. A magnificent infinity pool, surrounded on three sides by African, red teak decking and a walkway to an open, shaded ‘Sala’ - for some serious birding and afternoon napping - incorporating a roof fan to stir the gentle breeze that crosses the adjoining waterhole.
