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.

Quite an experience at Okonjima Plains Camp

Africat Foundation's Okonjima Plains Camp is a remarkable place. Our individual "standard" camp chalets were extremely large and very deluxe, with a huge well equipped bathroom. The chalet overlooks the concession area where we saw the occasional animal. A large open lounge and dining area in the main lodge is artistically designed and has an adjoining well stocked gift shop.
The main attractions at Okonjima are the cheetah and leopards, which we hoped to see on our afternoon and morning drives. Our South African guide Jordi was passionate about the work done by Africat and he proved to be an amazing guide, expressing a personal relationship he had with the animals. He did, in fact, lead us to one of the leopards within an hour of starting to track it.
He provided us with clear and concise information about the work done by the foundation and the relationship it has with the country's farming community.
The meals were of very high standard and dining room service was excellent

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 .

Okonjima Plains Camp review

It was beautiful. The Cheetah were more domesticated and cages and didn't really anticipate that. It was interesting to learn more about what they are trying to do to help the cats. We had an amazing sighting of a leopard and watched it try to hunt for a long time--although we were totally cheating with the tracking we still enjoyed it. The food was the best here.
