Okonjima Plains Camp (formerly Okonjima Main Camp) has 24 very comfortable and spacious rooms and two secluded swimming pools surrounded by beautiful gardens where a variety of birds and animals may be encountered. This is the best place in Namibia (and probably the world) to view and learn about the conservation of cheetahs and leopards. Additional facilities include an outside fireplace, a restaurant and bar.
Okonjima activities include visiting the AfriCat Information and Carnivore Care Centre, which offers an insight into the work of the AfriCat Foundation and the opportunity to radio-track leopards from the safety of a 4x4 vehicle. The leopards roam freely and catch their own prey within the 20,000-hectare Okonjima Nature Reserve.
If you are staying for 2 nights or longer there is also a guided Bushman Trail. It is an easy walking trail, and the guide focuses on the art of making traditional artefacts and how the San adapt and survive in an unforgiving wilderness environment. Again, for those staying 2 nights or longer it is also possible participate on foot in the radio-tracking of the rehabilitated spotted hyenas on the Large Carnivore Tracking Trail. In addition, and time allowing, it is also possible to radio-track rehabilitated cheetahs and wild dogs on foot on the Large Carnivore Tracking Trail.
After brunch, it is possible to go on one of the self-guided walking trails or do some birding. These trails are between 4km and 6km long and are perfect for those who want to spend some time in the solitude of the Okonjima wilderness. There are 250-plus bird species in the area, including Carp's black tits, Hartlaub's francolins and Damara rock runners - all Namibian endemics.
After dinner, guests are invited to join a guided night drive (at additional cost).
