Okonjima Lodge started with a conversion of the Hannsen family's farmhouse into what is now the Plains Camp. Then followed the up-scale Luxury Bush Camp, which offered more luxury and more intimacy. The Villa arrived to tip the scales of luxury and seclusion and was followed shortly after by The Bush Suite - an equally opulent den for couples, families and small groups.
A private annexe of the Bush Camp that comprises two suites and a central living area. Being the newest addition, the design, décor and luxury far exceeds expectations. It’s like having your own private African cottage in the bush, set with a view over the Acacia grassland, on the edge of a natural waterhole and with the Omboroko Mountains as a backdrop.
Offering exclusive use, the Bush Suite has a private chef, personal host and exclusive use of a game viewing vehicle. You won’t have to share your experience with other guests and your personal ranger will add a fascinating wildlife encounter to complete the package.
Luxurious. Leather. Lavish. The African décor of beads and baskets in neutral colours with warm accents and all the extras for comfort will make you feel right at home. You’re very own elegant “bush home” for the duration of your stay.
