Okonjima Plains Camp

A renovated cattle farm set within the rich Okonjima Private Reserve

Okonjima Plains Camp

Located in the pristine wilderness of the Okonjima Nature Reserve, Okonjima Plains Camp stands out as an exceptional destination for family safaris. 

Rooted in the history of the Hanssen family’s cattle-farming legacy, the camp’s main barn has been repurposed as a stylish living and dining area. Featuring leather materials and earthy tones, the barn opens out onto a veranda overlooking a bustling watering hole. The camp’s spacious View and Classic Rooms, also all offer their own veranda with panoramic bush views. 

The Okonjima Nature Reserve is the home of a thriving population of big cats as well as the Africat Foundation, a registered non-profit organisation focused on conserving Namibia’s biggest carnivores. Game drives through the reserve give families the opportunity to take part in real-life data collection, tracking elusive leopards, rhinos and brown hyena. 

Or gain a more intimate perspective of Namibia’s wildlife on a guided bush walk, spotting the reserve’s many bird species and rich flora and fauna. Finally, retreat back to camp for a chilled afternoon by the pool or game-spotting at the watering hole. 

Okonjima Plains Camp ensures an enriching and educational safari experience for families, providing a memorable experience for nature enthusiasts of all ages.
