Okonjima Bush Camp

Central Namibia

Rating: Mid-range    

Okonjima Bush Camp overview

Okonjima Bush Camp is smaller and more exclusive than its sister camp Okonjima Plains but enjoys the same wonderful scenery and the conservation ethos of the AfriCat Foundation, set up to protect Namibia’s threatened cheetah, leopard and other wild carnivores.

The camp was renovated and updated mid-2015 and guests can enjoy their stay in comfort and privacy.  There are just 8 thatched chalets and 1 suite at Okonjima Bush Camp.   The chalets are well spaced and built from a combination of clay, canvas and glass, all under a cosy conical, thatch roof.  There are two queen-size beds, a telephone to contact reception, leather chairs and a writing desk. Then there is a separate lounge area, or sala, which is open to the front with two comfy couches, mini-bar and tea and coffee station – it’s the perfect place to relax and enjoy a cup of tea.  The luxury suite, perfect for honeymooners, has stunning views, floor-to-ceiling glass doors to maximise this, a lounge with fire-place and the en-suite bathroom boasts a bathtub and an outside shower.  

The main building, curved in shape, is warm, welcoming and covered by thatch.  This is where you will find the dining area, lounge and bar and there are no less than 4 indoor fireplaces ensuring you will be cosy on a chilly evening.  The building is designed to curve around the manicured lawn and small waterhole to the front. To the side of the building you will find the pool and sun loungers, just the place to rest and relax between activities.
