Okonjima Nature Reserve

The 200 square kilometres private Okonjima Nature Reserve is home to the AfriCat Foundation, a non-profit organisation committed to long-term conservation of Namibia’s large carnivores since 1991 to ensure significant contributions to conservation, while trying to ensure the survival of Namibia’s predators in their natural habitat. It undertakes research, community support and environmental education projects, as well as conservation work to rehabilitate carnivores such as cheetah and hyena.

Why Okonjima Nature Reserve?

Wildlife Highlights

Namibia is home to over 20% of the world’s cheetah population – the largest concentration in the world. Since 1993, the AfriCat Foundation has rescued over 1,000 cheetahs and leopards from Namibian farmland, returning over 85% of these animals to the wild. This large reserve enables predators brought to the reserve, which may have been orphaned or removed from the wild at an early age, to live independently and to gain the experience that they need to return to the wild. The Okonjima Reserve provides a safe environment for this and often the animals are radio collared, so that they can be monitored closely. Other wildlife that thrives healthily are leopard, lion, oryx, giraffe, zebra, Damara dik-dik, hyena, African wild dog, honey badger and more.
