Who says encountering animals in the wild, or watching birds in their natural habitat, has to be anything less than completely comfortable? Why does having an authentic wilderness adventure mean sacrificing the luxuries that make a vacation so relaxing?
At Okonjima Luxury Bush Camp you live the natural experience, but you stay in a beautiful private African chalet, with a thatched roof and a bedroom wall that opens to give you a sensational 180° view of the passing wildlife and birds. There’s a sumptuous open dining area and bar with outdoor and indoor fireplaces, a secluded swimming pool and a watering hole nearby for unrivalled game-watching and excellent photo opportunities. That’s before you even embark on the thrilling game drives that are such a big part of Okonjima.
