This spectacular safari experience combines stays at two of Namibia’s most important conservation-focussed camps; Desert Rhino Camp, home of the Save the Rhino Trust, and Okonjima, home of the AfriCat Foundation.
The Namibia Conservation Safari is a wildlife experience like no other in Africa, and by choosing to stay at these unique camps you will be supporting the vital, Tusk funded work, of two of Africa’s leading conservation organisations, Save the Rhino Trust and AfriCat.
This unforgettable week not only offers the opportunity to get close to some of the world’s most iconic species, but also in Damaraland, rare sightings of desert rhino, elephant and lion, not seen anywhere else in Africa. And at Okonjima, home to AfriCat, you will see the cheetah and leopard whose survival here is one of conservations great success stories.
The Desert Rhino Camp is located in a wide valley sometimes flush with grass and sleeps up to 16 guests in eight Meru-style canvas tents that sleep up to 16 guests. Lying amongst rolling, rocky hills this camp not only has a truly beautiful setting, but functions as a collaborative effort between Wilderness Safaris and the Save the Rhino Trust, who work to protect the endangered Black Rhino.
Okonjima Bush Camp is situated at the edge of a wilderness area, west of the Waterberg Plateau Park. Comprised of eight thatched, African-stye chalets. Much more than a beautiful lodge, Okonjima is home to the work of AfriCat, who rescue, research and rehabilitate cheetah, leopard, lion, caracal, wild dog and hyena.
This unique journey not only offers an insight into one of Africa's most visually stunning countries, but also the all important work of two very significant forces driving the conservation of wildlife in Namibia.
