For those of you who love to stay fit on holiday or just need to stretch your legs . . . Okonjima offers self guided Hiking trails and a mountain bike trail!
Walking trails of 4 – 6 km’s, for those of you who want to spend some time alone in the solitude of the Okonjima wilderness. Walk amongst various game and enjoy glorious views. . . . However, most of the trails do not start from the lodge, but require a short drive with your private vehicle to the start of the trail.
Your choice of 3 trails:
The Dik-Dik Trail: 3km along the edge of a dry river-bed and 3km along a flat bush-road.
The Chacma Trail: A 4km, rocky trail that winds over along the edge of the Omboroko mountain range.
The Giraffe Trail: This 5km trail constitutes an easy walk through a Terminalia forest, with a look-out point over the 20 000ha Reserve.
END YOUR TRAIL with a cold beer or ‘cuppa’ at AfriCat’s new Day Centre.
The smaller, 2 000 ha Okonjima Reserve that surrounds most of the lodges the schools and the campsite is large enough to be home to several antelope species roaming free within this area. The ‘wildlife’ within this section of the Nature Reserve are free-ranging and have not been rehabilitated thus, they have a natural respect of man and are no threat.
The MTB route is 26 km of mixed terrain including, technical, single track and climbs, as well as technical down-hill and open terrain. Approximate time: 2-3 hours.
Summer / during main, wet months it will be a challenge, but a fun one. The route is mapped and accompanied with numbered sign posts along the way.
