Okonjima Plains Camp
Set amidst plains and rolling hills in a 220km2 private reserve just south of Otjiwarongo,Okonjima Plains Camp opened in late June 2014 and is the newest of the accommodation options on the Okonjima Nature Reserve. It has effectively replaced Okonjima Main Camp, the original Hanssen family farmhouse that was converted into the first lodge on the farm, which is now normally booked exclusively by small groups. It remains the most affordable of the places to stay on the reserve and the camp's raison d’être is still the AfriCat Foundation, set up to conserve and protect Namibia’s threatened cheetah, leopard and other wild carnivores. A stay here gives you a wonderful opportunity to learn about these animals and to see them up close and personal.
Our view of Okonjima Plains Camp
Despite it’s increased size and change in design, Okonjima Plains Camp has retained a relaxed, informal and friendly atmosphere. It is an ideal base for those wanting to visit the Africat Foundation, and stay in tasteful accommodation with all the amenities and facilities that go with a good quality lodge but without a very high price tag. It offers great photographic opportunities for the big cats (plus some smaller creatures too!).
