With a Central Highlands safari, discover Okonjima, a conservation hotspot that is home to The AfriCat Foundation; famous for rehabilitating big cats and other wildlife.

- Phenomenal cheetah sightings
- Conservation hotspot thanks to The AfriCat Foundation's wildlife rehabilitation

The large reserve, which is malaria free and spans a tremendous 55,000 acres of pristine wilderness, is best known for helping cheetah return to their natural habitats.

Incredible leopard sightings are on offer with the leopards at the reserve radio-tracked from vehicles to make sightings easier. Or, for a more adventurous turn you can track predators on foot with the chance to radio track cheetahs, rare African wild dogs and spotted hyenas. The reserve is also home to a wide variety of birdlife, with over 250 species recorded, including some birds endemic to Namibia like the Rock Runner and Carp's Black Tit.
You can also discover the interesting day to day life of a Bushman through a special walking trail. Delve into the traditional means San Bushman use to survive in such an inhospitable environment and the unique culture that governs their lives.
