Okonjima Luxury Bush Camp
Okonjima Luxury Bush Camp is the luxury option at Okonjima - a family-owned portfolio of lodges on a private reserve between Etosha and Windhoek.
Bright versions of earthy tones and an open-plan design give the place a relaxed and informal atmosphere. The eight chalets are spaced well apart from each other and are built like an African hut - with some essential modifications. The front half of the chalets roll up to reveal nothing but the African bush; each has an en suite bathroom, mini-bar, telephone, ceiling fan and a safe.
The living area, or lapa if you want to get into the swing of things, is an enormous open-sided thatch construction that looks out over a waterhole and the wilderness. Inside its earthen-coloured walls is the dining area, a large lounge with a raised fireplace, and a sunken bar area; next to it is the swimming pool.
Okonjima Bush Camp is the luxury option and the Main Camp is the original lodge that offers home-grown comfort; Okonjima Villa and Okonjima Bush Suite are the pinnacle of luxury and seclusion.
