Okonjima - The Bush Camp

About Okonjima: the bush camp

In the home of the AfriCat Foundation, about 3 kilometres from Okonjima Main Camp, Okonjima Bush Camp offers the wonderful experience of viewing Namibia’s big cats up close. A little more luxurious than the Main Camp, there are just 8 rooms and a honeymoon suite, each offering the ultimate in privacy.

Rooms are designed as spacious rondavels, each with a bird bath out the front – just a taster of the wonderful fauna it is possible to encounter here…

Luxurious safari accommodation.

Setting

In the AfriCat Foundation, 3 kilometres from Main Camp and 48 kilometres from Otiwarongo on the B1.

Accommodation & Facilities

Each of the 8 thatched chalets is circular, with a very warm and authentic African feel. There is a large queen sized bed and a lounge area, as well as a mini bar, hairdryer and tea/coffee making facilities. The rooms are peppered with carvings and artifacts, and you will also find an en-suite bathroom with a clever shower that’s designed to look like a tree. The honeymooners suite is rectangular, with sliding glass doors in front of the bed, letting in the stunning views.

The main area is curved and has a nicely manicured lawn. Inside you will find the reception, dining room and a large lounge with a bar.

Due to the high risk of dangerous animals in the area, there are ‘panic buttons’ in the rooms.

Dining

Usually you would stay here full board and the food is not only delicious, but well presented.

Activities

The main attractions are the big cats of the AfriCat Foundation and there are lots of activities you can enjoy, getting you closer to these beautiful animals. You can also do guided or self-guided walks around Okonjima or do some birding.

Child Policy
