Overview of Okonjima Bush Camp

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 are 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 will have the chance to observe their work with big cats and learn about their conservation efforts.

Rise early for self-guided mountain and sunrise walks or a game drive with an expert ranger. You can wander the reserve on your own along marked trails but make sure you have got your binoculars handy: birdwatching is a popular activity at Okonjima Bush Camp as over 300 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 – if your luck is in – observe rarely seen nocturnal animals such as honey badgers, genets and porcupines.

General Facilities

The central open-sided lodge, which has 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 leads 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 swap stories and contemplate the starry night sky.

Beautiful bush setting that will work well at either the end or start of your Namibian adventure. Be sure to spend some time watching the watering hole from the comfortable lounge area

    I just wanted to thank you for recommending Okonjima Bush Camp to us. It was truly one of the best vacations we have had in a long time. We are planning to go back this summer.

    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.
