Okonjima Nature Reserve is privately run and it consists of commercially run lodges and the non profit Africat project. This project is about the rescue, rehabilitation and release in wild of cats; it's supported by the lodge business as well as by donations. It's a convenient way to see cats as well as many other animals in one place albeit... 更多
My family and I stayed at Okonjima in June 2016. We stayed for two nights as self-catering campers at the Omboroko Campsite. Given that Okonjima also has many spectacular luxury accommodation options I expected that campers would be treated with a little less priority. I was entirely wrong. From the moment we arrived we were greeted warmly and made to... 更多
Okonjima is a perfect stop over to Etosha from Windhoek. It’s a reserve that rescues injured animals but it’s a large so you can go on morning and night rides and see plenty of animals. It’s a private reserve with smart guides who are very knowledgeable about each animal. We arrived about 2 hours before dinner so freshened up, grabbed... 更多
We visites their day centre in order to get some cheetah from up-close (which under normal cicumstances is virtaually impossible) as well as inform us abouth their conservation efforts in respect of wild cats, wild dogs and vultures.... Most interesting!
We were reaching the tail end of our road trip to Namibia and arrived at our penultimate destination, Okonjima cat foundation. It's a huge expanse and after arriving at the front gate we were informed that there was a 23 km drive to the main lodge! The game reserve covers 86 square miles which is 4 times the size of... 更多
Saw 2 leopards and 3 cheetahs in one morning drive. We stood a few metres from the cheetahs, simply unbelievable! Lodging is gorgeous, very hospitable staff and delicious food. We regretted not staying just slightly longer. Really good stopover to Etosha from Windhoek.
We stayed one night in Okonjima, but managed to fit in two game drives to find animals with radio collars on. On the first one we found five cheetahs - in groups of 2 and 3, which we were able to approach on foot so got amazingly close. In the morning we found one leopard out patrolling her territory, but... 更多
We initially chose to stay a night at the Okonjima Plains Camp just to break up the drive from Etosha to Windhoek but after a guide at Hoodia Lodge told us that Africat was really great (and he said we should have taken 2 nights in order to be able to do the activities) we decided to leave Etosha very... 更多
We staid 2 days in Okonjima plains camp. Fabulous family chalets with large bays opened on the bush, wide and excellent beds, very high quality lodging. Cant imagine how luxurious can Bush Camp or Villas be! The food and service were also excellent. Angel, Laura, Lina and the team take real care of the guest, especially kids. We visited Africat... 更多
What a wonderful place. The rooms are stunning. In a small house is a bedroom with a view of the park and passing animals and a small watering hole. Next door is a sitting room in another little house. I was so excited when I went to bed that I was up all night to see who would visit the... 更多
