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.

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.

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.
