Okonjima Lodge Plains Camp is a steady favourite between Etosha and Windhoek either as a first or last night stay. A chance to see big cats up close in a beautiful reserve.
Plains Camp has two accommodation options (classic rooms and view rooms) to suit a range of budgets and of course the big draw, the AfriCat Foundation, continues to thrive. The lodge consists of 14 classic rooms which do have wonderful views of the waterhole and across the mountain-framed plains and 10 view rooms, spaced further apart and furnished to a noticeably higher level, which have the same plains views as the classic rooms. The accommodation is stone under thatch with screed or tile floors and each room has two double beds that look right out onto the pristine bush.
The main living area, or 'The Barn' as they call it, is a large and equally stylish space under a thatch roof looking out over the plains. The barn houses the dining area, lounge, bar, curio shop, swimming pool and viewing deck.
Plains Camp is the home-from-home lodge; Okonjima Luxury Bush Camp does what it says on the label; the Okonjima Villa and Bush Suite both offer complete luxury and total seclusion fit for folks like Brangelina et al. The Omboroko campsite is wonderful with private ablutions, a swimming pool and electricity points (note: Okonjima Lodge facilities are not available to campers and activities are optional extras depending on availability).
The AfriCat Foundation; leopard viewing; AfriCat Carnivore Care Centre; Bushman trail; self-guided nature trails up to 8km; bird watching
The AfriCat Foundation is world-renowned for its conservation work with all predators, with the emphasis on cheetahs and leopards, and is the main attraction at Okonjima. Track leopards, hyaena and rhino, follow the Bushman trail, and game viewing and birdwatching on the 220 sq km reserve.
