Set within the secluded wilderness of Okonjima Nature Reserve in Namibia, the family friendly Okonjima Plains Camp is the perfect place to unwind and get away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life. With just 30 rooms in total, the camp is an incredibly private place to visit and is also wheelchair accessible with ramps leading up to the rooms. Double beds and a double shower fill the rooms, as do amenities such as a mini fridge, tea/coffee facilities and fans to maximise guests comfort during their stay. You can also enjoy access to an entertainment venue and communal area that includes a dining area, bar, swimming pool and picturesque views over a waterhole and the Okonjima plains. This makes your time here all the more comfortable and social should you wish it to be. Originally a cattle farm since the early 1920’s, Okonjima’s attention is now focused on recovering the grass plains and turning it into a nature reserve, with a particular focus on carnivore conservation. With the close help and collaboration of the AfriCat Foundation, it has quickly become a sanctuary for Namibian wildlife such as cheetahs, leopards and brown hyenas. Guests will be able to witness these creatures up close and personal when staying at the camp, taking game drives and guided bush walks with experts. Visible from both the main property and the individual rooms, animals roam freely across the reserve, leaving those who visit feeling truly immersed within the natural surroundings during their stay.
