It’s not just cheetahs but leopards too - it’s all about looking out for wild carnivores. Literally and figuratively. Camping is in the 2000 hectare non-rehabilitation area at the foot of the Omboroko Mountains. Sandy, shaded, secluded.
4 campsites which share a swimming pool. A little circle of blue in a little patch of lawn. An incongruous touch reminiscent of the early days of Okonjima. In those days the first rescued cheetah would wander up for a fuss as afternoon tea was served.
Camp Koshi: the smallest site, it can take about eight people but there’s only really room for one vehicle. The shower is under roof and doesn’t have a view but the toilet does. Bonus. It’s a bit of a walk though so take your torch at night.
Camp Kendi: both the shower and toilet are under roof and this site can accommodate more than one vehicle.
Camp Chilala: open air shower and toilet with views. This site can accommodate more than one vehicle.
Camp Chimelo: open air shower and toilet with views. This site can also accommodate more than one vehicle.
Note: Campers are not allowed to use the Lodge facilities.
Visit the AfriCat Foundation. This is a day centre so you're welcome to stop by and see what this project is all about.
Other activity options would include a visit to the Carnivore Care Centre, track leopards, hyaena and rhino. Take the Bushman trail and learn about the indigenous people.
Note: Keep in mind that the 'other' activities cannot be booked in advance. Activities must be booked direct at the lodge as this is on an availability basis - lodge guests get first pick.
