Okonjima Bush Suite
Okonjima Nature Reserve is a 20 000 ha nature reserve in the heart of Namibia, midway between Windhoek and Etosha National Park. It is surrounded by the sandstone Omboroko Mountains and renowned for its wildlife sightings and picturesque landscapes. It is here where you will find Okonjima – or “place of the baboons”. The property offers a number of accommodation options, including Okonjima’s Private Bush Suite, which offers an unparalleled luxury safari experience, indulging guests with a private chef, guide and safari vehicle.
Situated on the edge of a natural waterhole in the secluded wilderness area of the Okonjima valley, the Private Bush Suite consists of two separate, en-suite bedrooms under a double-volume thatched roof and can accommodate a family or group of four. It has a modern, chef-designed kitchen with gas and electrical cooking facilities, a double-door refrigerator with a built-in ice maker, a wood-burning fireplace that brings together the spacious lounge and dining areas, as well as outdoor dining options. It also has a 13 m private swimming pool.
Okonjima is also home to The AfriCat Foundation, a non-profit organisation committed to long-term conservation of Namibia’s large carnivores, especially cheetahs, lions and leopards. It started off as a sanctuary for cheetah and leopard that had been rescued
from irate, livestock farmers and today is dedicated to the protection and long-term conservation of all large carnivores in Namibia.
