Okonjima Camp Review

Located about halfway between Windhoek and Etosha, this camp is an excellent stopover point on your way to the park. Nestled among the Omboroko Mountains, this lovely but very busy lodge is also home to the environmental-award-winning Africat Foundation (www.africat.org), which has rehabilitated and cared for leopards and cheetahs for many years. You can get a close look at these magnificent cats feeding, and there are also guided San and Bantu walking trails. A bonus is the spacious hide, within walking distance of your thatched room, where you can sit and watch some of the smaller animals and hundreds of birds. In addition to lodging in the farmhouse with either garden or mountain views, there's a villa that sleeps up to 12, a suite that sleeps four, and a bush camp of eight thatch chalets with a canvas "front wall" that can be lifted during the day so you can enjoy the view. If you're looking for ultimate exclusivity, treat yourself to the gorgeous bush suite.
