Okonjima Main Camp

Explore Namibia

Found in the Okonjima reserve, the Main Camp was once a family farmhouse that was refurbished as a lodge in 1993. As Okonjima reserve is home to the Africat Foundation guests are given the opportunity to encounter big cats up close. This is a huge attraction for visitors to Okonjima and an excellent opportunity for learning more about these incredible predators. The foundation rescues and releases big cats back into the wild, with particular focus on caring for cheetahs.

Accommodation at the camp takes the form of 14 standard rooms and 10 spacious view rooms. Set quite far apart from the main area of the camp, the 10 view rooms are well furnished and comfortable, presenting excellent vistas of sweeping savannah grassland. Some of these rooms also overlook a waterhole, which is often frequented by wildlife from the surrounding area. The standard rooms also offer views across the Okonjima grass plains. All accommodation provides spacious en suite bathrooms and ceiling fans.

There is a pool at the new, main guest area which boasts a three-tier lounge/bar/dining area with African decor that adds a charming layer of authenticity and an open fire, perfect for staying cosy on cold winter evenings.
