Okonjima Bush Suite

Okonjima Bush Suite

Just two miles from Okonjima Main Camp and hidden in the acacia thorn-veld lies Okonjima Select Private Bush Suite, a special destination in northwestern Namibia. A massive thatched roof covers this spacious bush-cottage, which overlooks a busy waterhole and opens to stunning views of the sandstone Omboroko Mountains. With a personal host or hostess and chef attending to every need, the suite’s amenities are exceptional. Large lounge, inside dining area, shaded outdoor dining area, wood-burning fireplace, pool, and kitchenette all contribute to the exclusive, luxury atmosphere.

Two private, en-suite bedrooms can accommodate a family or couples traveling together. The cottage is structured with some canvas-screened walls to allow guests to experience the ambience of the African wild in safety and comfort. The bedrooms feature high ceilings, queen-sized beds, air-conditioning and heating, indoor and outdoor showers, colonial bath-with-a-view, and more.

Activities at Okonjima center around the spectacular wildlife. From leopard-viewing and tracking on foot to game drives in search of cheetah and spotted hyena, guests enjoy the many opportunities to see these animals thriving in their natural habitat. Learning about the AfriCat Foundation, experiencing a day in the life of a bushman, taking a self-guided nature walk, birdwatching, enjoying evening game drives, and viewing game at the nocturnal hide are just some of the adventures waiting at Okonjima.

Guests can expect to see a great diversity of wildlife here including leopard, cheetah, caracal, African wild cat, brown and spotted hyena, black-backed jackal, aardwolf, bat-eared fox, aardvark, pangolin, honey-badger, porcupine, kudu, oryx, red hartebeest, gnu (blue wildebeest), eland, impala, giraffe, Hartmann’s (mountain) zebra, Burchell’s zebra, steenbok, common duiker, Damara dik-dik, warthog, chacma baboon, and many more.

With its small beginnings in 1992, the AfriCat Foundation has grown immensely, saving over 1,000 carnivores since its inception. A vast majority (86%) have been rehabilitated and released into the wild, but Okonjima has provided a safe haven for those too injured to be set free. Ensuring the long-term survival of these magnificent creatures through environmental education, ongoing research, and mitigation of human-wildlife conflict, AfriCat continues to be a strong leader in habitat and wildlife conservation.
