Set amidst plains and rolling hills in a 220km2 private reserve just south of Otjiwarongo, Okonjima Plains Camp opened in 2014. It is the most affordable of the places to stay on the Okonjima Nature Reserve, whose raison d'etre is the AfriCat Foundation, set up to conserve and protect Namibia's threatened cheetah, leopard and other wild carnivores. A stay here gives you the opportunity to learn about these animals and to see them up close.

STOP PRESS: The Okonjima Nature Reserve will no longer act as a release site for former captive cheetahs, therefore cheetah tracking will no longer be offered as an activity. Please see the activities section below, for more information on this as well as the other activities on offer.

Our view of Okonjima Plains Camp

Despite its increased size and change in design, Okonjima Plains Camp has retained a relaxed, informal and friendly atmosphere. It is an ideal base for those wanting to visit the Africat Foundation, and stay in tasteful accommodation with all the amenities and facilities that go with a good-quality lodge but without a very high price tag. It also offers great photographic opportunities for the big cats (plus some smaller creatures too!).
