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.

Our recent awards
Just a short note to thank you for all your efforts in putting together our itinerary for our honeymoon. We had the most utterly fantastic time and we were impressed time and again by the A&K service; all of the transfers happened perfectly and we were looked after from the minute our journey began. We also got a sense that we were staying in places that we would not have found had it not been booked through you. In particular The Elephant Camp, The Hide and Ongava Lodge stand out as the most wonderful places to stay, with exceptional guides and hosts, and where we had the best experiences. It was just wonderful- better than we could have imagined. Thank you again and we will book with A&K in the future (just maybe not again this year!) Best wishes Tom
