Pure self-indulgent luxury!

This is top end luxury with your own cook and housekeeper! The bedrooms are huge - with beds that could fit about 4 people in and glorious bathrooms. The terrace has a (very cold!) pool, a fire pit to enjoy a post dinner drink while watching over the waterhole (though there wasn't anything much to see because of the drought). The food was delicious and personal service exceptional.
We had a brilliant game drive in the late afternoon where we saw a leopard with a kill in a tree. The head of the killed animal fell out of the tree and then we saw there was another leopard underneath the tree waiting to catch it!
Quite an experience!

Okonjima Plains Camp - we were upgraded here

This is a difficult review because we were only here for one night and we had been upgraded to the suite which was a short journey from Okonjima Bush Camp so a double upgrade. We had made good time in getting to this Lodge as we wanted to go on the afternoon drive. On arrival we were given the induction and then told we had been upgraded. We then drove on to the Bush Camp and were told we had the Suite which was a short journey away. There was another induction which meant that it was then rather a rush to get to the Suite and then to get back to the Bush Camp for the Safari.

The suite was amazing but we were not really there long enough to enjoy it. The rooms opened up completely and this meant wonderful views of many more animals than listed below. The only problem with it was that we had to drive between the main lodge and the suite, which was a disadvantage after a safari and supper when we were tired. It meant we didn't freshen up after the Safari before coming in to the dining room to eat. At least two nights should be booked at this location whether you are in the Plains Camp or the Bush Camp to appreciate it and the work of the Africat Foundation.

Cheetah encounter at Okonjima

The Bush Suite is outstanding, two double beds in each bedroom with large ensuites including inside and outside showers and a stand alone bath with a view and surrounded by candles. There is also a large luxurious living area and a very well equipped and stocked kitchen with almost everything all inclusive. Then outside there is a lovely swimming pool, a fire pit and a floodlit water hole where you can sit and watch all the wildlife arrive in the evening.

The staff are equally outstanding, Mike our expert guide is very knowledgable about the wildlife and the Okonjima ethos and was a brilliant cheetah tracker. The housekeeper Claudia(? spelling) is very attentive, friendly and professional and attended to our every need and the lovely chef Emily provided us with the best meals we had in Namibia.

One day we went Cheetah tracking with Mike, when we knew we were close to one we left the vehicle and continued on foot along a track, on rounding a bend we came across the Cheetah which was guarding a kill it had just made, a small Springbok, When it saw us it got up and walked slowly towards us with it's hackles raised and came to within 6 feet, Mike told us to stay still and not move when every instinct was telling us to turn and run!!.

Mike assured us later than we were in no real danger but it was very exciting in bowel moving kind of way.

At other times we also came close to Leopards and a spotted Hyena - an evil looking creature.

All we can say is thanks to everyone at Okonjima for a fantastic experience and keep up the good work

Lovely accommodation at Okonjima Bush Suite

Lovely accommodation, excellent staff and guides, food amazing. Very well organised place and their educational work with school children around the big cats is inspiring and comes from the heart. A cheetah passing a metre or so from us in the bush was a high point.

Okonjima Bush Suite review

We had a 11 year old daughter so we had to stay in the suite with a private chef and a butler! It turned out that it was not the age, but the safety of the activities that matters.(Cheetah goes after small people)So we were able to do Cheetah trekking on foot. The suite is just an amazing suite with large living room with a fire place and the dining room. The chef, Marlene cooked delicious meals to our taste, and everything was elegantly presented. We had our own field off the balcony and our own pool so we could watch quite a scene with all different animals visiting us.

Okonjima has a private reserve with Leopard and Cheetahs with collars, so it was easier to trek them. We saw Leopard almost killing a warthog, and many many cheetahs, and many more animals.

Our guide Martin was a very good guide, too. The Suite was so nice that we wanted to just spend more time than going out to see animals.

Okonjima Suite review

The suite is almost too special and certainly a great place to end up before returning to reality.

We would have liked an extra day and may well return some day.
