Wonderful for getting close to big cats

This was a different experience from the rest of our trip as the big cats here are mainly collared and so can be radio-tracked. This did not in any way detract from the wonderful experience of getting VERY close to both a leopard and a cheetah.

Our guide Rohan was one of the best we have ever had anywhere !! He was so enthusiastic and knowledgeable, and seemed to be as excited about seeing the animals as we were! We went with another guide, Gideon, to see the information centre of the Africat Foundation which runs Okonjima, and he gave us an extremely informative tour of the facilities.

The Bush Camp is a really comfortable, well appointed and well run camp, and with the superb guides here, we felt this was an excellent experience and a wonderful way to finish our wonderful holiday !

A very good lodge

We were very fortunate as we think we were upgraded to their bush suite, because of a big party staying at the main lodge, which was fantastic.

The bush suite was a 3 minute drive from the main lodge and the other chalets. We enjoyed some very interesting guided drives to see leopold and cheetah. An excellent stay.

Okonjima Bush Camp review

Think we were upgraded here as we seemed to be the only ones in a very large one-off villa in main camp. Room and bathroom were stunning but very hot. Lovely food and friendly staff.

Excellent guides who were very knowledgable and helpful.

We Were Upgraded to the Villa!

Although we loved Bush Camp on our previous visit, we had an even more amazing time in the Villa. On our final night, we had the whole place to ourselves. The facilities are incredible.

Beautiful suite with every luxury and wonderful views of the bush from our bed. Drinks and laundry were inclusive and the meals, cooked for us by the chef at the Villa, were delicious. Clive was an excellent guide and we had some really great sightings of leopards, cheetahs and much more besides.

We definitely plan to visit Okonjima again.

UPGRADED - Fantastic time at the Villa!

We were at Okonjima for my husbands' 60th birthday and we had a fantastic time. We were upgraded to the Villa as there had been problems at one of the other camps.

The staff were wonderful and made our stay there superb.

More exclusive than Main Camp

Same luxury as Main Camp but more secluded.

The night hide is more reliable than Main Camp for porcupines and honey badgers.

Top Accommodation

The chalet was fabulous. Just perfect - extremely well planned, every amenity you could wish for. Having one side built of canvas, which can be rolled up, is a wonderul innovation. Beautifully sited, you really felt as though you had your own private home in the bush. A highlight was for me was being able to feed the birds. It was really difficult to tear myself away from the chalet to go on the activities! I could have spent the whole day there relaxing and just enjoying the antics of the birds and warthogs.

I enjoyed the activities and being able to get a closer view of usually very elusive animals such as leopards and wild dogs. Obviously it's not the same as tracking totally wild animals, but this was as I expected. As an added bonus, on the drive back to camp one evening we also saw a wild leopard. He crossed the road right in front of our vehicle and much to our delight, hung around for a minute or two, giving an exceptional sighting.

Tiena the receptionist/host was very helpful and really co-ordinated everything extremely well. Thanks to Tiena, throughout the two days everything was very well organised.

It is the perfect place at which to end a stay in Namibia. My only regret is not staying for 3 nights.
