Okonjima Plains Camp, Otjiwarongo


A stylish safari lodge in the Okonjima Nature Reserve

Within the Okonjima Nature Reserve, home of the famous AfriCat Foundation, this newly-developed lodge looks out across the beautiful Okonjima grass plains. A fantastic safari destination known for its large carnivore sightings, there's so much to see and do here including cheetah tracking, bushman trails and game drives in search of the elusive leopard.

With its design honouring the Hanssen family's cattle-farming history, the lodge features three tiers and rooms with stunning views. When it comes to social areas, the word 'spacious' is not quite adequate to describe The Barn, where you can sit and soak in the view over dinner and a drink. The pool, located beneath an iconic wind wheel, is the perfect place to end the day. A short distance from the original homestead, the Standard Rooms are private hideaways with a small furnished veranda and contemporary en-suite bathrooms. The View Rooms take their name from their stunning vistas, which bask in the surrounding grass plains. Stylish and spacious, these rooms are set further apart, ensuring more privacy and space, and a unique wilderness experience.
