Magical finale at Okonjima
Okinjima is a fantastic place to stay. The bungalows are beautiful. The main hotel lovely. The food was good (cold as usual!!). It was wonderful to sit out round the fire and enjoy a drink before dinner.
The activities are extremely well-organised and the chance to see the cheetahs and leopards at such close quarters is something we'll never forget.
The staff were extremely helpful and friendly (although every time we went out being told or asked on our return if we had enjoyed our activitiy was a little excessive - a very small gripe).
Amazing hot water bottles!!
All the aspects of Okonjima Bush Camp were great, accommodation, food, lapa and welcome from June. The activities were very interesting and we managed to track down the leopards and cheetahs. The guides were knowledgeable and friendly - Albert even managed to find us an Aardvark.
We liked feeding and watching the birds the greatest variety on the whole trip. Although the evenings/nights were cold our bed was kept warm by amazing hot water bottles which didn't go cold
A great starting point for Namibia!
Albert was an excellent guide and we spent two of three activity drives with him. Ask for Albert!!
The conservation activity was very weak - the guide (not Albert) only knew what he'd memorized and couldn't answer questions to any depth (such as about the relocation of rehabilitated animals or the educational programs for farmers ) If I were going again I would look at some of the other cheetah rehab sites as an alternative.
Somehow this camp seems more "talk" than real action about conservation education/rehabilitation.
Action packed experience of game conservation
Lovely relaxing garden.
Programme arranged to maximise opportunities of game viewing.
Sensitive arrangement of seating at meals made it pleasant and interesting socially.
