Okonjima's 22 000 hectare private nature reserve successfully combines luxury safari accommodation with a world famous conservation programme. Bush Camp exudes a wonderful African ambience, with its ten spacious open plan rooms designed to offer maximum privacy, overlooking natural bushveld on the edge of a wilderness area.
Bush Camp's African themed décor is striking, with each room framed by ochre and green canvas walls under a thatched roof. Eight of the rooms offer two double beds, bar fridge and roof fan, plus a private verandah. A special feature is the ability to roll up the canvas panelling to feel at one with nature. Two additional suites offer two queen-size beds each, a private lounge with fire place and en suite bathroom with bath and outside shower. Bush Camp has a central swimming pool and an atmospheric bush lapa built in the shape of the indigenous camelthorn pod.
Okonjima is home to the Africat Foundation, which has received worldwide acclaim for its work in protecting cheetahs and large carnivores in Namibia. Guests are able to venture out tracking these magnificent and endangered cats with expert rangers. Guests can also experience a day in the life of a San Bushman, learning about the art of making traditional artefacts and how the San survive in this unforgiving wilderness environment. Walking trails of up to eight kms are also offered to those who want to experience the beauty of the Okonjima Wilderness. The overall experience at Okonjima is fascinating, with its emphasis on the protection of large carnivores and the education of rural Namibian communities.
