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.
