Okonjima Lodge is a luxurious family-run property that is located below the Omboroko Mountains in Namibia. This exclusive and remote setting allows visitors to experience the African wilderness in all its glory, while Okonjima Nature Reserve is renowned for providing guests with sightings of leopards and cheetahs. Indeed, the AfriCat Foundation,who undertake important conservation work to protect Namibia’s native big cats, are highly active in this region.
Wilderness camping to suite luxury
There is a selection of accommodation on offer to guests at Okonjima Lodge, from superbly-appointed private camps to luxury safari lodges. At the top end of the scale are the Private Bush Suite and Okonjima African Villa, which provide visitors with their own chef as well as a dedicated safari vehicle and guide. At entry level are the Okonjima Omboroko Campsites, which allow residents to be at one with nature while staying at one of the four sites. The four partially equipped campsites share a swimming pool, and all have viewing points for making the most of those uniquely Namibian views. There is also the Okonjima Luxury Bush Camp, made up of African huts as well as safari tents and one suite, while the Okonjima Plains Camp comprises a range of hotel-style rooms.
Tracking big cats and birdwatching
Okonjima Nature Reserve is spread over a site of around 200 square kilometres. Within this are rocky outcrops, vast plains and dense thickets, the latter of which is the frequent haunt of the beautiful leopard. The reserve has been researching these big cats, their habitat and behaviour for over 30 years, with a view to their future protection. Activities at Okonjima centre around tracking these big cats, as well as other native species, via bush walks and game drives. Birdwatching is also a popular pastime, as is delving deeper into the details of the conservation and research projects that are currently underway.

Find out what our clients have to say about their experiences
We have been using Azure to arrange our holidays for over 12 years. Every year usually twice a year, sometimes more, we rely on the experienced team at Chester to provide expert information on our chosen destinations. Be it a return to our established favorites in Barbados and Dubai or a new and exiting destination chosen from Azures brochure it is always handled in a friendly and competent manner. The small details are not missed such as do we need late check out or early arrival, which can make such a difference after sometimes long hours travelling. For us using Azure takes the uncertainty out of booking holidays.
We have been booking our holidays through Azure for 10 years and we can thoroughly recommend them. The Azure team arrange amazing holidays, well chosen destinations and hotels with a tailored itinerary that runs like clockwork with so many wonderful extras, it really takes the time and stress out of planning. When the weather has disrupted our journeys, their 24 hour service has provided us with 5* rescues! Nothing is too much trouble for Azure staff and the same goes for all the staff we have met on our Azure holidays which really are out of this world. We continue to recommend your company and all your wonderful team and look forward to our next holiday with you.
My first experience with Azure was when they came to my rescue when my family and I were stranded abroad on holiday without accommodation, their professionalism and ability to make things happen at very very short notice was second to none. They were very knowledgeable and were able to utilise their many relationships within the industry to get things resolved for me within an hour. I can't praise them enough for rescuing my family's holiday and making it a truly memorable time. Since then the team always do their best to make my holidays the best they can possibly be based on their own vast travel knowledge and experiences. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend them and wouldn't use anyone else for luxurious travel.
