  • Track cheetah on foot using a radio tracker

  • Game drive to locate the elusive leopards, which have been radio collared

  • Relax by the swimming pool

Okonjima Bush Camp probably offers the most luxurious accommodation in the Okonjima Private Game Reserve, and enjoys stunning views across the Namibian plains and to the nearby mountains. The camp comprises eight African-style cottages and one honeymoon suite, which each offer privacy and tranquillity, having reopened in May 2015 after an extensive refurbishment. The thatched, circular rooms are widely spaced out for maximum privacy, and each one has a tented front which can be removed to reveal views of the Omboroko Mountains and the Waterberg Plateau Park.

The two bedroom Bush Suite, which overlooks the watering hole works very well for a family or group travelling together, as children under the age of 12 are accepted here. The cottage is self contained and has its own lounge area and kitchen. There is also a large 13-metre swimming pool.

Also overlooking the waterhole is the central area, complete with campfire, kelim rugs and comfortable sofas where guests can stretch out and relax after a day of exploring the park. Okonjima’s 'bush camp' cuisine has a distinct African flavour, with much of the food cooked outside over an open fire for a more authentic dining experience.

Okonjima is home to the AfriCat Foundation, which works with local farmers to conserve Namibia’s leopard population. All guests will have the unique opportunity to watch the AfriCat Foundation researchers at work, and to participate in radio-tracking on foot. Alternatively, watch leopards from the safety of a hide or a safari vehicle, and track them using signals from their radio collars.

Central Highlands, Namibia

Okonjima Bush Camp is situated halfway between Windhoek and Etosha National Park. The vast plains west of the Waterberg Plateau Park are occasionally broken by the remnants of ancient sandstone ‘outcrops’, which once covered large areas of northern Namibia. Nestled among these outcrops, in the Omboroko Mountains, lies Okonjima.

It is an 11-hour international flight to Johannesburg, followed by a two hour international flight to Windhoek. There is a private airstrip a 5-minute drive from Main Camp. Alternatively, is a 2-hour 30-minute drive from Windhoek (3 hours from the airport) along a tarmac road.
