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.
