Home of AfriCat, Namibia’s premier carnivore conservation foundation, Okonjima offers the opportunity to get up close and personal with nature, as well as those working to preserve it. For those looking for a holiday that gives back, Okonjima is the perfect opportunity.
The Okonjima Game Reserve sits on 55,000 acres halfway between Windhoek and Etosha National Park. It is home to some of the most exclusive lodging opportunities in Namibia, including the Okonjima Grand African Villa.
The Grand African Villa offers the most versatile configuration, with two private suites with a total capacity of eight adults and four children. The compound is comprised of a main house, two thatched suites, and an infinity pool overlooking a natural watering hole for maximum wildlife viewing.
The main house is designed to make you feel at home. It is equipped with a spacious professional kitchen and coolers for both wine and soft drinks. Your private chef will take care of most meals from here, and you’ll have access to snacks and beverages at any hour.
All comforts are accounted for, including wireless Internet, indoor and outdoor showers, and a bathtub with a panoramic view. A personal host and chef attend to guests in the Okonjima Grand African Villa.
The view in each room can be enjoyed through sliding panel glass doors, or for those who wish to get a taste of even more authentic safari, the panels can be replaced with a series of canvas and gauze partitions for an open air feeling.
The property’s relationship with AfriCat gives guests prime access to the large cats of the Namibia wilderness. Leopard viewing, foot safaris, and night safaris are exclusive privileges of camp guests, while visits to the Cheetah Project are also open to day visitors. Birders and photographers will quickly find the property to be rich with opportunity to hone their expertise and capture rare sightings.
A stay at Okonjima is a great way to blend education and recreation, for families of all ages and stages. Access to the endangered large carnivores is just one of many wildlife viewing opportunities, and supporting the AfriCat project is a great way to support their continued presence in the wild.
The Okonjima Bush Camp and Okonjima Private Bush Suite are also excellent options for your safari in this wonderful Namibia game reserve.Request Information
