Okonjima’s Omboroko Campsite

Camping in Okonjima Nature Reserve epitomises the African safari experience. Your small group or family can become one with nature as they visit the Carnivore Care Centre, track leopards and cheetahs, learn about the indigenous people during the Bushman trail, and grow attuned to the sights, sounds and ways of Namibia’s grassy plains. The four, partially-equipped, private campsites share a swimming pool at the foot of the Ombokoro Mountains and are located in the 2000ha non-rehabilitation area. All four sites boast spectacular sundowner viewpoints.

Omboroko Campsite Information

Become one with nature

For a truly African safari experience track cheetahs and leopards through the 20 000ha Okonjima Nature Reserve with a guide, followed by a sundowner viewpoint and bonfire, before falling asleep beneath the stars to the sounds of hyaena calls and cicada songs.

Each of the four private, self-catering campsite consists of:

  • A fixed light and a multipurpose power point
  • Private, under cover hot-water showers, (except for Camp Chilala where you shower beneath the stars)
  • Private flush toilets
  • A covered washing-up area
  • A sundowner viewpoint
  • Two inclusive bundles of fire wood per night. More firewood can be arranged with your guide at an additional cost.

Camp Chilala, Chimelo and Kendi cater for more than one vehicle, while Camp Koshi is the smallest campsite and only caters for one vehicle.

 

Please note:

  • Guests need to bring their own tents, food and drinks, and additional fuel, as the various campsites are not catered for by Okonjima Lodge.
  • Our Ombokoro Campsite rates are split between a camping site and an activity rate. All trails and wildlife tracking activities are excluded and need to be pre-booked on arrival at an additional cost, subject to availability, as preference is given to lodge guests.
  • Campers are welcome to reserve breakfast, lunch or dinner at any of Okonjima’s lodges or eat lunch at the AfriCat Carnivore Care and Information Centre with a booking.

 

All subject to availability and booking on arrival, as preference is given to lodge guests. In terms of lodge facilities, the curio shop is also open to campers.

Children are welcome, however due to the nature of some of our activities, child participation may be restricted depending on age.
