  • We visited a lot of very good campsites in Namibia, but this was the best of the lot. It has wonderful facilities including a large, covered, concrete-based kitchen area with a free supply of wood for...  more »
  • Within the Okonjima Game Reserve works Africat Foundation that deals with the recovery of large felines, cheetahs and leopards in particular, injured or orphaned. The aim is to put them back into the wild, unfortunately it is not always possible. The tour we did lasted about 2 hours, before we were at the foundation headquarters where they explained how they operate and gave information about the animals we would see. Afterwards we had the chance to see some cheetahs and a leopard, it actually looks like a visit to a safari zoo, but the purpose of the foundation is well deserved and these tours are a way to fund yourself. We stayed overnight at Omboroko Campsite in Camp Chilala. The place is beautiful, the pitch equipped and wide, the wild part concerns the toilets that consist of 2 toilets surrounded by a fence with no closed roof in front of a tent and 2 showers structured in the same way. It was an exciting experience for us, and I think it's right to support them in their work.
