Okonjima AfriCat Extension

Join the AfriCat Foundation for Close-Up Photos & Interactions with Feline & Other Carnivores
3 Days
From $2095
Okonjima Game Reserve is a 55,000-acre sanctuary providing a protected home for Namibia’s large carnivores, especially leopard but also wild dog and brown hyena. Okonjima is home to the AfriCat Foundation, dedicated to researching and rehabilitating Namibia’s threatened wild cat population. AfriCat rescues felines that are casualties of human-wildlife conflict on Namibia’s farmlands, returning 86% to the wild. Get close to big cats on 4x4 drives as we join experts to track radio-collared leopards, and hear about research projects on the brown hyena and endangered pangolin. We also learn about the ancient San tribal culture, the region's indigenous inhabitants. This onsite project offers an outstanding educational experience as well as an opportunity to capture thrilling photos during unusually close encounters with some of Africa's most captivating wild cats.

Trip Highlights

  • Big Cat Rescue & RehabilitationLearn about AfriCat's efforts to rescue, rehabilitate and release at-risk felines into the wild, with the best opportunity in Namibia to observe wild leopards up close
  • Cutting-Edge Conservation ResearchDiscover how state-of-the-art technologies are helping scientists support carnivore welfare and reduce human-wildlife conflict
  • Exclusive Nighttime ObservationFrom a nocturnal hide, view "night life" on the reserve, including creatures such as porcupine, honey badger and caracal
