overview

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.

Facilities

The central open-sided lodge with high thatched ceilings and tasteful African décor incorporates a sunken lounge area with roaring fireplace, a bright and airy dining area and a bar that lead out onto the extensive deck with a traditional fire pit.

The camp's swimming pool is ideal for cooling off in during the heat of a summer's day, and as the temperatures cool, sit around the fire pit in the evening to swop stories and contemplate the starry night sky.

Early morning coffee and a light snack is provided before your morning activity and a more substantial breakfast is served when you return.

Lunch is usually light and healthy whereas dinner is a delicious, beautifully presented three-course affair.

Meals are served in the main dining area or under African skies.

Make sure you order a pre-dinner drink from the bar and wander out onto the deck to enjoy the sunset.

Chalet

The eight well-spaced chalets are a combination of earthy ochre walls and khaki-green canvas set under a thatched roof. The entire front of the chalet can be rolled up to allow both the cool breeze and sounds of wild Namibia to enter. The en suite bathroom has a large shower and twin basins.

Traveller Reviews

  • We loved the rondavals which were well appointed. Our guide, Dean, was very good, and we had two good game drives and an evening with porcupines. The ambiance and the food was good, and I would recommend it to anyone.
