Okonjima Nature Reserve
Luxe Namibia & Conservation of the Big CatsThe AfriCat Foundation & Okonjima Lodge are located on a vast nature reserve just south of Otjiworongo. If you're driving around Namibia on a personal adventure, this lodge is conveniently located along the way from the capitol city of Windhoek on the journey to Etosha.
The Hanssens, a Namibian farming family, settled on the property of Okonjima and converted to a mission of conservation and rehabilitating the land. Over the past twenty years they've restored the reserve to its natural, wild beauty with all the animals that go with it including this stunning leopard you see in the photo above.
Known for their work with cheetahs, recent successes in 2013 have seen new cubs in the wild! Visit for the scenery, the education in conservation, the top-notch chefs, and knowing you are supporting a vision for the future Namibia's people and wildlife.
