Okonjima Plains Camp in Namibia enjoys the beautiful surroundings of rolling hills and sweeping plains of the central highlands.  It is home to the AfriCat Foundation which is dedicated to the preservation of leopard, cheetah, lion and the other big cats in Namibia. During your stay here you can learn about the big cats, conservation and even see them up close and personal! There are also other animals on the reserve that you will come across including some interesting nocturnal animals.

The camp design pays homage to the cattle ranching roots of the Hanssen family who bought the farm back in 1970. The main building, known as The Barn has been well thought out. It houses the reception, curio shop, lounge, dining room and bar.  It is open plan and spacious, huge in fact and spread over two levels. Large windows offer protection from the elements but give a feeling of openness and allow uninhibited views of the surrounding countryside. You can enjoy after-dinner drinks outside by a roaring fire.

There are two types of rooms, 14 standard rooms and 10 view rooms.  They are equally beautiful and decorated in a modern, uncluttered style with blue and green hues. Despite only one type bearing the name ‘View’, both have views over the plains in front of the camp.  The main difference is the View rooms are newer, larger and have more attention to the little touches. The standard rooms are still spacious and offer an excellent bed for the night in a relaxed, friendly and informal atmosphere.

Also consider the reserve's sister camp, the more luxurious Okonjima Bush Camp.

Client Rating for Namibia 5/5 from 12 reviews

The view room was stunning. Well-organised game drives. We did one afternoon leopard drive and one morning cheetah drive. Both successful and making the most of our one night stay which we felt was enough.
