Travellers' Choice 2018 Winner
Certificate of Excellence
The Plains Camp is 700m from the airstrip within the secluded wilderness area of Okonjima Nature Reserve and has majestic sunset views. Its design honours the Hanssen's family cattle-farming history with its three-tier accommodation facility of 10 large View Rooms, 14 spacious Standard Rooms and six affordable Garden Rooms. It is family-friendly and wheelchair accessible. Okonjima guarantees a unique African safari to remember. Our activities delight and educate even the most experienced of travellers. Mornings begin early with tracking cheetahs on foot in the Okonjima Nature Reserve alongside our experienced guides. In true African style, days end with game drives through the acacia thicket in search of elusive leopards followed by a sundowner. Whether you hike, bike or are an avid bird watcher, there are endless ways to spend your time at Okonjima.

We went on the leopard tracking. If I remember well, it started at 6 o'clock in the morning. There was coffee and tea and also some biscuits for us first, so we did not have to start with an empty stomach. The drive lasted... More

Bush Camp is nice and smaller. I perceived it as quite dark. The Plains Camp is much lighter and open space. I didn't stay at the Bush Camp, but I couldn't see that the extra price would be worth it. Only the activities are... More
