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.
