About This Accommodation

Okonjima Bush Camp rests among the Omboroko Mountains just south of Otjiwarongo. The camp has just 8 Rondavel-style thatch and canvas rooms (although they have an upcoming expansion planned) with khaki-green canvas flaps that open wide so you can feel close to nature and enjoy the bird baths outside attracting a range of wildlife. Each room is nicely decorated and planned. We like the main areas, finding them very inviting. There is a pool, a big braai fireplace, and a manicured lawn with a firepit.

The real essence of Okonjima is that it’s the home of the Africat Foundation. Here, you have the opportunity to see research in action, and even track some of their collared leopard, cheetah, hyena, and wild dog. Excellent guiding and the use of open-top vehicles means there is a chance for some truly exceptional game viewing. This camp isn’t glamorous, but we enjoy it and we love how much conservation and education is tied into the experience. This camp is wonderfully fuss-free and is affordable for those on a budget.
