Experience the work of the AfriCat Foundation


Okonjima Nature Reserve is situated between Windhoek and Etosha National Park, making it a convenient stopover en-route between the two and a taster of what awaits visitors in the game abundant Etosha. Okonjima has a variety of excellent accommodation options from Villas to Bush Suites; Luxury Camps to campsites - there is something for everyone.

This family-run 22 000ha private reserve devotes the majority of its land to the AfriCat Foundation project dedicated to the rehabilitation of captive carnivores - particularly cheetah and leopard. The foundation is intent on allowing the cats to perfect their hunting skills in the hope that they will become self-sufficient and candidates to return to the wild. A trip to AfriCat not only allows visitors to get up close to the inhabitants but also to learn more about the rehabilitation, human-wildlife conflict issues and the constructive wildlife research occurring on the reserve.

Activities available on the reserve include a visit to the AfriCat Foundation, leopard viewing and tracking carnivores on foot with guides. Visitors can trek along the Bushman trail to gain valuable insight into the daily life of Bushmen who survive in the surrounding wilderness. Daily game drives (including off-road night drives) and walking trails are just some of the other activities on offer.
