West of the Waterberg Plateau, the vast plains are occasionally broken by the remnants of ancient Sandstone outcrops, which once covered large areas of northern Namibia.
Nestled among the Omboroko Mountains lies Okonjima – a Herero name meaning Place of the Baboons. This is much more than just a lodge. Okonjima is also home to The Africat Foundation.
The Grand African Villa, overlooking a natural waterhole, is situated in a secluded wilderness area approximately 10 km from the Main Camp.
The Villa has 2 separate, private suites, together with 2 select, en-suite bedrooms in the ‘Main House’, which together can accommodate groups of up to 8 adults and 4 children.
The graceful ‘Main House’ consists of chef-designed kitchen with wine and soft drink coolers, both gas and electrical cooking facilities and an endless supply of ice from a double door refrigerator.
The living spaces are punctuated by a spacious lounge and dining area with an open, wood-burning fireplace.
There is a magnificent infinity pool surrounded on three sides by African red teak decking and a walkway to an open, shaded ‘Sala’ - for some serious birding and afternoon napping - incorporating a roof fan to stir the gentle breeze that crosses the adjoining waterhole.
2 separate, exquisite, thatched Suites situated approximately 35m – 50m on either side of ‘The Main House’ are complemented by a well-stocked mini bar in each Suite, the choice of either an inside or a unique, outside bush-shower, and baths and toilets with a bush view.
All the bedrooms in the suites have airconditioning, high airy roofs with fans and when needed, heating facilities. 3 out of the 4 bedrooms have magnificent, wheeled, king size beds, for rolling out onto the terraces to sleep under the stars
There are 2 en-suite, luxury bedrooms. The bathrooms have both an inside shower and a spectacular outside bush-shower, together with a beautiful bath-with-a-view.
All have Wi-Fi or a dial-up, internet connection with ample work space.
No children under the age of 12 years.
Okonjima's Grand African Villa is absolutely ideal for a group of friends or large family wanting complete privacy in a luxurious, exclusive setting during their stay at Okonjima.
The Villa comes with your own personal host and chef to attend to all your needs, and an exclusive, private game vehicle and guide.
