Fulfill most of your Safari dreams in a single stay!
For ratings context….we were at Okonjima, Mowani, Shipwreck, Pelican Point, and andBeyond Sossusvlei. This hotel is a great starting point, and if you are coming for the scenery of Namibia and plan on skipping Etosha, you can see almost everything you’d see in Etosha in a single night here! You come here for the amazing wildlife viewing, and any other criticisms should be taken lightly, as the focus here is clearly the predators, and they do an amazing job at that. Important Information: This hotel is about 2.5 hours from Windhoek, which makes it a great starting point. You will get to see cheetahs, leopards and lions! How long to stay: 1 – 2 days. They are extremely well setup, so you could stay one night (as we did), and see pretty much everything there is to see, not because the place is small, but because it is so efficient. Rooms (5/5): The Chalets are amazing. They all are very private and look out onto a plains area where you have a chance at seeing some wildlife. The main lodge area was also very nice and had a small pool area! Location (5/5): This is extremely easy to get to and one of the closets places to Windhoek, making it a great starting spot. The drive to the hotel is mostly on paved roads until the last 10 miles or so. Food (4/5): The food here was good, but completely uninspiring. The breakfasts were the stars, but this resort was a little lackluster in the food, which makes sense as the focus is around seeing animals. I wouldn’t let this stop you and everyone will be completely satisfied. Service (4/5): Our guide was great, but again, there was nothing inspiring here. Service was good, but not amazing. There was just nothing that took it up to the level of some of the other hotels in Namibia.
A super place to start your trip in Namibia. Sites, service, atmoshere
The setup and service at Okonjima are exceptional. Their attention to detail, the safari drives and walks are magnificent, the chalets just superb,... The Africat organisation is sadly however not able to reintroduce cheetahs at this site as cohabitation of the raised cheetahs with the local leopard population isn't realistic. Thanks to Juuso, we learned so much about the Namibian wildlife and nature.
Beautiful and couldn’t be better!
Wonderful and beautiful stay! Yeh what can I tell? Everything at this lodge is perfect! It’s very very beautiful all of it. Nice place beautiful rooms with views Great staff they will do anything to give you the best stay you wishes.(kariena) Also the rangers(John was ours)do all they can to give you the best game drives you can wish for.Nothing is to much to ask. Also the food is one of the best we had in Namibie. We stayed here for 3 nights and it was really a highlight of our holliday. Thank you all.
The best in Okonjima
Okonjima Bush Camp was amazing. The food was the best food we had during our whole trip Traveling across Namibia — truly 5 star! The rooms were lovely and the separate coffee/tea room with a viewing area was amazing. Each morning we enjoyed our coffee while watching the antelope, giraffe, and other animals graze through the park. Danny was an excellent and knowledgeable guide and we enjoyed both the leopard and cheetah activities with him. All of the staff were welcoming and very helpful. This is one of the best lodges I’ve been to! We loved and appreciated it so much!
One Night Wasn’t Enough
What a shame we had but one night here, as it might have been the best tented lodge we stayed at in Namibia. We were on a small group tour that ended here. The rooms are luxurious and the open area where one has meals is beautifully designed. The food was outstanding as well, as was the service. We went on game drives, seeing a leopard, which was collared, after quite a search. He was sleeping, so we waited patiently for him to awaken. When he did he approached our vehicle, marking the front and rear tires and coming within a foot of me, then went back to sleep behind it. The next morning we went in search of rhinos, which are not collared, which we found sleeping after a 2-hour search. They got up and approached us, though not closer than 15 meters, which was close enough. Do not miss this lodge!
