"Okonjima's luxury offering, with guaranteed opportunities to get near to big cats and other carnivores. While learning about Okonjima’s commendable rescue and rehabilitation projects, you can expect up-close sightings of leopard in particular, but experienced travelers and purists may find the safari experience a bit artificial."

OVERVIEW: Enjoy cheetah & leopard tracking at Okonjima

In our view, Okonjima is a great way to start or end a trip – but it can feel a bit tame, compared with the rest of Namibia.


The camp sits on the Okonjima Nature Reserve 2.5km from Plains Camp and offers guests a private and more luxurious safari experience.


The lapa is the heart of the camp, with views overlooking the waterhole. A large arched building, the lapa has three distinct areas: a lounge with a number of inviting fireplaces and a bar, the reception area and the curio shop, and the dining room with its beautiful wooden tables. There is also a swimming pool tucked around the side of the lapa – this has sunloungers and lots of shady places in which to relax and unwind!

With only eight chalets and one honeymoon suite, this Bush Camp offers privacy and luxury. The chalets are styled on the traditional African homes, with a semi-detached open lounge/sala area, each equipped with two queen-size beds. The chalets are completely open fronted, with unobstructed views of the surrounding bush. The honeymoon suite offers stunning views through sliding glass doors and it also has an outside bush shower!


  • Activities at Okonjima are focused on tracking the local rehabilitated leopard and cheetah. Leopards are radio-tracked from the open-sided game-viewing vehicles – these cats are notoriously shy, so sightings are not guaranteed.
  • However, many other carnivores can be tracked by vehicle and on foot, including cheetah, wild dog and spotted hyena.
  • Additional activities on offer include a visit to the AfriCat Foundation, nature trails, Bushman trails, and a visit to the camp’s nocturnal hide!
