A vast and starkly beautiful desert pan – Namibia’s top safari destination and one of the finest game reserves in Africa.
Recommended place to stay:
Okonjima Nature Reserve, Otjozondjupa Region, Namibia|okonjima.com|
Official star rating:
Cast away in blissful isolation, in the Omboroko mountains between Windhoek and Etosha, the main attraction of Okonjima is a visit to the groundbreaking AfriCat Foundation that has pioneered predator conservation in southern Africa, with walks and game drives available.
Okonjima owns several farms, split into large enclosures where cheetah and leopard roam. Accommodation is in two lodges; Okonjima Main Camp, and the Bush Camp, offering more luxurious rooms in huge clay rondavels, with king-sized beds draped in luxurious linens, African art on the walls and sparkling en suite bathrooms.
From tracking cheetah on foot, to self-guided trails in the Okonjima wilderness, there are wonderful opportunities here for bush walking. It’s not all about the big cats either – the reserve teems with birdlife. Pack your binoculars to tick off the 250-plus species.
All of the various rooms and suites make the most of Okonjima’s 20,000 hectares of open space, with wonderful wide-open views on offer. Warthogs may trot past your room, and at night the bush comes alive with sound. It’s wild – and well worth the price tag.
