Okonjima - Bushman Trail

Okonjima - Bushman Trail

Step out of your comfort zone and into life in the African bush, surrounded by nature and among wildlife. This easy 2.5-km, walking trail though Okonjima Nature Reserve , is especially loved by our younger guests due to the interactive and informative demonstrations. It is led by our experienced guides, who share centuries-old myths and legends of the Khoi-San people. Participation is welcome !!

Okonjima - Large Carnivore tracking on foot

Okonjima - Large Carnivore tracking on foot

Guests staying at any of Okonjima’s camps can partake in a tracking, on-foot safari, alongside guides in search of AfriCat’s rehabilitated carnivores within our 22 000ha private nature reserve.

Okonjima - Leopard Viewing

Okonjima - Leopard Viewing

Our guests travel continents and countries with the hopes of sighting the elusive leopard in its natural habitat. Leopards are the most adaptable of all the wild cats. These solitary, intelligent predators cover large distances across open plains, mountainous terrain and acacia thickets, which is why sightings are never guaranteed. However, leopards are frequently seen during a safari in the Okonjima Nature Reserve. Though many of our leopards are radio-tracked for their protection and as part of a density research project through AfriCat’s conservation initiatives – they roam freely and hunt within the 20 000-ha/200km2 nature reserve.

Okonjima - Nature Trails

Okonjima - Nature Trails

For those who want to spend quality time in nature, our three walking trails vary between four and six kilometres. Walk among wildlife and savour our spectacular landscapes. The trails start a short drive from either of the Okonjima Lodge camps. End your trail with a cold beer or refreshment at one of our lodge restaurants.

Okonjima - Nocturnal Game Drives

Okonjima - Nocturnal Game Drives

After the sun has set and the temperatures have dropped, the African bush comes to life once again: bat-eared foxes roam about, aardwolves are on the hunt for insects, owls observe their surroundings from a height, while leopards and brown hyaena go out in search of unsuspecting prey. Guests are invited on a nocturnal game drive, led by our knowledgeable guides around the Okonjima Nature Reserve.

Okonjima - The AfriCat Foundation

Okonjima - The AfriCat Foundation

Okonjima Nature Reserve in central Namibia is home to The AfriCat Foundation. It has grown significantly since it was established as a welfare organisation in the early 1990s and registered as a non-profit organisation in 1993. Today, AfriCat’s mission is the long-term conservation of some of Namibia’s large carnivores – such as brown hyaena, leopard and cheetah, all of which can be seen during an environmental education visit to Okonjima.

Okonjima - The Cheetah Project

Okonjima - The Cheetah Project

Our Rescue and Release Programme at AfriCat’s Carnivore Care Centre has been developed over twenty years, thanks to our mutual relationship with the nearby farming community. Some of the carnivores in our care are young, fit and wild enough to be part of our rehabilitation project. They are awaiting their turn to get a second chance in the wild as they will be released within the Okonjima Nature Reserve.
