Okonjima Nature Reserve

Discover iconic Okonjima Nature Reserve

Okonjima, born of the desire to find balance for cattle farmers and predators, is now a game reserve home to the beloved AfriCat foundation.

Half way between Windhoek and Etosha lies the well-known Okonjima Nature Reserve. The 96 kilometre fence surrounding the 22,000 ha Okonjima private, Nature Reserve was finally completed in 2010.

Okonjima, home of The AfriCat Foundation, was established as a small ‘guest farm’ in 1986. For many years, Val (VJ) & Rose Hanssen had been avid cattle farmers until the need for solutions to increasing livestock losses and post-independence interest in Namibia as a tourist destination, changed the face of Okonjima, as well as that of Carnivore Conservation.
