Activities at Okonjima Bush Camp
Identify some of the more than 250+ species in the area, including some of the Namibian endemics – Carp’s Black Tit, Hartlaub’s Francolin and the (Damara) Rock Runner.
Experience a day in the life of a Bushman. It constitutes an easy walking trail and is highly informative. Guests get to learn about the art of making traditional artefacts and how the San adapt and survive in an unforgiving wilderness environment. Participation is welcomed!
Large Carnivore tracking on foot
Okonjima guests are invited to participate on foot in the radio-tracking of the rehabilitated Cheetahs, Wild Dogs or the Spotted Hyaenas on the Tracking Trail within the 20 000ha / 200km2 rehabilitation nature reserves. PLEASE NOTE: Tracking of the rehabilitated carnivores in the 200km2 Okonjima Reserve is reserved for guests staying at one of Okonjima's lodges.
Leopards are frequently seen, giving visitors an opportunity to observe these magnificent predators that are ‘radio-tracked’ from our game-viewing vehicles. The leopards roam freely and catch their own prey within the 20 000ha / 200km2 rehabilitation nature reserves. These cats however, are notoriously people-shy and sightings are not guaranteed.
After Dinner, guests are invited to join a guided, night-drive in the 20 000ha / 200km² private, nature reserves. Guests also have the option to do an afternoon Nature drive within the reserve & enjoy viewing various animals in their natural habitat.
Self-guided walking trails of up to 8 km, for those guests who want to spend some time alone in the solitude of the Okonjima wilderness.
