With only eight private chalets, Okonjima Bush Camp is a small and intimate camp situated on the border of the Waterberg Plateau Park, a remote wilderness area in northern Namibia. If you're interested in Africa's big cats, then this is the destination for you: Okonjima is a wildlife rehabilitation and research centre and part of the Africat Project - dedicated to the preservation of leopard, cheetah and other large Namibian carnivores. You'll have the chance to observe their work with big cats and learn about their conservation efforts.
Rise early for guided mountain and sunrise walks or a game drive with an expert ranger. You can always wander the reserve on your own along marked trails but make sure you've got your binoculars handy: bird watching is a popular activity at Okonjima as over 300 bird species have been identified here. Two bird hides are within walking distance of the camp and in the evenings you can visit the night hide and observe rarely-seen nocturnal animals such as honey badger, genet and porcupine.
