Okonjima Bush Camp

Great location but a little contrived. It was nice to see leopard and cheetah but felt a little bit like it was cheating as they were so easy to find with the collars. We walked right up to 2 cheetahs - almost felt like they were tame. If you want to see these beautiful creatures then it is a great option but if you want the feeling of seeing them in the wild then maybe give it a miss.

BRILLIANT!!

Great place!

Arrived round 3.30pm - and did not realise lunch was included in our package - as well as an afternoon leopard tracking session. However, staff were great and quickly packed us up on our own for a private guided tour with Michael - before we even checked in! great trip - saw 4 leopards incl 2 cubs.

accommodation fantastic - the separate viewing chalet for each room - with bird seed to chuck out the window, blankets, comfy chairs, t/ coffee and homemade biscuits - was great. We had warthogs and deer things come right up and could even tickle the warthogs back!

Evening night ride was also excellent - saw nothing in the hide, but guide went off looking and we found 4 porcupine including 2 baby ones, plus a whole host of other beasties. Checked in late - in the dark...

next day - early walk for cheetahs - and found 4, easy time through lunch and went hyena hunting in the pm - saw none - so switched to leopards again - and saw a couple more. Sundowners with the baboons. Great room, great guide, great staff - a highlight!

Okonjima Bush Camp review

We were in room 9, which is the mini suite, and quite different to the other rooms. We loved it and an excellent choice for a winters stay, as it had a fire place.
I've travelled in many safari trucks, and these had the least amount of room and were probably the most uncomfortable yet.

This was a great place to stay and it was wonderful to be able to see wild leopards and cheetahs. The guide we had was excellent and the accommodation was great.

Okonjima Bush Camp review

Exceeded our expectations in every way.

The bush camp itself is comfortable and lovely but the rooms are fabulous - spacious, beautiful and very restful. The staff were absolutely excellent - especially our guide, Previous.

The cats were fabulous to track and spot and we saw some interesting aspects to how to manage these cats in a manner befitting rehabilitation and release. Good ( but not great) food but a sensational opportunity to learn more about the big cats in Namibia.

Highly recommended.

Okonjima Bush Camp review

Very well managed game park. Maybe a bit "managed", but we saw a lot here.

We could just sit on the verandah and watch the wildlife passing by. Perfect!

Food was quantity over quality.

Okonjima Bush Camp review

Drinks were actually included, when 'excluded' on the booking. A pleasant surprise.

A lot of people do one night only and they try to maximize the additional activities ( quite expensive).

Actually they have several bush hikes that are well marked and very pleasant if staying longer than one night.
