Okonjima Plains Camp

Discover Okonjima Plains Camp

Found on the Okonjima reserve, home to the Africat Foundation which specializes in rehabilitative programmes for cheetah, leopard, wild dog and hyenas, a stay at Okonjima Plains Camp provides the opportunity to encounter these predators up close.

Plains Camp was once a family farmhouse that was refurbished as a lodge in 1993. This family-friendly lodge has 10 spacious View Rooms, 14 spacious Standard Rooms and 6 affordable Garden Rooms. Some of these rooms also overlook a waterhole, which is often frequented by wildlife from the surrounding area. There is a pool at the main guest area which boasts a 3-tier lounge/bar/dining area with African décor that adds a charming layer of authenticity and an open fire, perfect for staying coyz on cold winter evenings.</
