Great activities at Okonjima Bush Camp

Excellent service and accommodation all round and the tours were exceptional.

We took an evening tour to see porcupines and honeybadgers, a sunrise tour to track cheetahs and a sunset tour to track leopards. Our guide Daniel was excellent.

Okonjima Bush Camp is perfection

We kept the best to last, this was our fifth visit, and we are now getting to know the staff and the guides as well as the Africat team

The rooms were quite fabulous before but are even better now giving a separate sitting room with wide open windows overlooking the plane , The communal areas are very attractive with loads of sitting areas,

The guides are very knowledgable and apart from tracking the leopards and cheetahs, they spot any thing else that moves, and even showed us footprints and snake tracks.

James has an interest in cheetah anatomy and was able to spend some time talking to Tristan Boheme and his vet again at the Africat.education centre

The staff always make us so welcome, we really hope we can go again before long.

A wonderful upgrade to the Bush Camp

We were upgraded to Okonjima Bush Camp which is the more luxurious camp, as were all the other guests in fact. We absolutely loved the place. It was beautiful, luxurious, and we had the best meal of our whole trip there. We wished we could stay for longer.

When we booked we were cautiously told it was a place for rescued cheetahs and that the leopards were collared. That is true but it is an enormous enterprise covering a huge area and there are truly wild indigenous creatures there as well. When the guides were tracking the collared leopards we stumbled upon a wild one as well. The guides are well informed and it was different and exciting to track the collared animals with the radio receivers.

I would go back there and would highly recommend a stay of 2 nights.

A wonderful surprise

Having been prepared to find this camp touristy we were very pleasantly surprised and had a most comfortable and enjoyable stay. The accommodation was spectacular and we could have stayed longer.

If the collars gave a false sense of how easy it was to track down game it was still good to see leopard, cheetah and wild dog in a much larger area than we had expected. Also, good to see honey badger even if the circumstances were manufactured.

What a finale!

Everything here was a delight

A huge bedroom and a separate sitting area where we could look out at wild-life. A jar of food thoughtfully provided by the camp allowed us to entice the guinea fowl and warthogs. View from the loo (in chalet 7) was a huge termite mound! A weaver bird nest hangs from the thatch and we have our own little water-hole.

Highlights for us were: the game drives (especially cheetahs and leopards); trekking cheetahs on foot; the enthusiasm of our guide, Mike; the visit to Africat. We fitted in 5 activities while we were her, and every one was special.

Okonjima Bush Camp review

Not such an exciting place as some others but it offers walking trails and real chances to see leopards and cheetahs up close. Great scenery and views too.

One place where they might offer a birding game drive.
