Leopards spotted!

Great room overlooking the plain.

Enjoyed both the drives we did although sponsorship for was rammed down your throats a bit too much but can put up with that to then see the cheetahs.

The morning leopard tracking drive was fantastic in that we saw both a male and female leopard.

Okonjima Plains Camp review

Bigger than some of the other places we stayed and somewhat less welcoming, although the staff were all very friendly. Felix, our guide took us on a really good drive in the morning tracking a leopard which we finally found. The afternoon drive to see the work of the Africat Foundation was interesting but less exciting in that the cheetahs there are now in captivity and provided with food rather than in the wild.

Our standard room was very good with a nice view across the bush and very well equipped. We don’t see the benefit of a View room.

We went on one of the three walks which was well signposted and a good opportunity to see some animals on foot rather than from a vehicle.

Wow. Wow. Wow.

This camp is Luxury from start to finish. I am pleased we stayed here on our last 2 nights, or it would have been all downhill from here on.

The rooms are fantastic, with a panoramic view while you are laid in bed of the wildlife area. Ours was a standard room, so I have no idea what the people got extra for their extra money. The bathroom is huge and you are provided with everything that you need. The food was excellent, Well Presented by friendly and attentive waiters.

This is well worth the 25 km from the main road to get here.

We went on 2 organised game drives, one that included a sundowner and one the following day, when we saw the Leopard.

Okonjima Plains Camp review

Upgraded happily to view rooms, which were very large and exquisitely comfortable, with magnificently large windows.

Much wildlife, and opportunities for self-guided walks and guided tours. Conservation focus was great to see.

Great stay

Having been on the road for 2 weeks already and having seen plenty of wildlife we were happy to just chill at Okonjima.

The main building and the rooms are very modern and new. Loved lying in bed in the morning looking out the most amazing picture window at the animals out in the veld. Rooms were huge with great facilities and completely private.

We spent the day lounging at the pool and chose not to go on the leopard tracking game drive but friends who did had a great time. We were disappointed that they no longer have free roaming cheetah.

Quality experience, great common area

A warm welcoming by staff. Garden rooms offered a peaceful, private, attractive setting.

Shower and sink didn’t drain well.

Good stopover between Etosha and Windhoek.

Would be a great place to spend more than one night.

Enjoyed the leopard game drive! Jordy was a great, entertaining guide!

Okonjima Plains Camp review

What an impressive place. Unbelievable design to the main space - given that this was not the high end of the operation.

Beautiful rooms. Very slick service. Our guide was also very impressive. Again it was good to feel we were putting something into the conservation efforts.

We had a great trip out looking for leopards early morning .
