Okonjima

Call 01242 547 702 to speak to a specialist Enquire


West of the Waterberg Plateau Park, vast plains are occasionally broken by remnants of ancient Sandstone outcrops, which once covered large areas of northern Namibia. Nestled among the "Omboroko Mountains" lies OKONJIMA - a Herero name meaning "Place of the baboons".  Okonjima is a two and a half hour drive from Windhoek and is half way between the Etosha National Park and Windhoek.

Okonjima is home to the AFRICAT project which has had to take on a large number of captive cats / carnivores no longer wanted by other establishments. Among the carnivores being rescued, researched and rehabilitated by AFRICAT are cheetah, leopard, lion, caracal, wild dog and hyena. AFRICAT has saved more than a 1000 carnivores since 1993. 86% have been released back into the wild.
