Okonjima Plains Camp

Classic A deluxe lodge or tented camp, almost all with swimming pools, excellent food and service, large nicely appointed rooms or tents with comfortable beds and tasteful decor; most of the lodges have air-conditioning and the tents are usually fan-cooled.

Okonjima Plains Camp honors the Okonjima cattle-farming history, dating back to the 1920’s.  The lodge features 24 rooms each with views across these plains and equipped with a mini-fridge, tea/coffee station, safe, telephone, roof fans, spacious en suite bathroom with twin basins and a large shower, and a balcony to relax and soak up the peaceful setting.

Plains Camp is family-friendly, as well as providing wheelchair accessibility. The main lodge area, named The Barn, includes the dining and lounge area, pool and the curio-shop. The open, grass-plains were 'recovered' by removing and burning invasive Acacia bushes during 2012 and 2013, creating the plains-view, ensuring a great sunset most evenings.

Okonjima is a remote guest farm on a private nature reserve, run by the Hanssen family. With its scenic location it is an excellent and relaxing place to end your safari. There are some good walks and the bird life in the area is particularly good. Learn about the Africats project, which gives you excellent opportunities to photograph cheetah and leopard and other species. Optional excursions include: Cheetah tracking on foot with telemetry equipment to monitor project animals, Visiting the orphaned cats at The AfriCat Foundation, Leopard trails (leopard viewing is not guaranteed), Guided & Self-Guided Nature Trails, and Nocturnal & Bird hides can be visited throughout their stay
