Okonjima Villa


Okonjima Villa is situated within the 20,000 hectare private Cheetah rehabilitation park and is a true 'home away from home', complete with a rambling series of beautiful thatched buildings, a sparkling swimming pool, waterhole and plenty of space.

The graceful 'Main House' of Okonjima Villa consists of an up-to-date, 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 at Okonjima Villa are punctuated by a spacious lounge and dining area with an open, wood-burning fireplace and 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.

'The Main House' also sports 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.

Two separate, exquisite, thatched Suites situated on either side of 'The Main House' are completed by a well-stocked mini bar in each Suite. Guests, once again, have the choice of either an inside or a unique, outside bush-shower. Toilets and bidets accompany the baths, all with a bush view.

Fittingly, 3 of the 4 bedrooms have magnificent, wheeled, king size beds, for rolling out onto the terraces to sleep under the stars. All the bedrooms have air-conditioning, high airy roofs with fans and when needed, heating facilities. An array of three concertinaing, glass-paneled doors easily fold away to give magnificent, panoramic views of the surrounding vistas. These open doorways may be substituted with an elegant but practical, 'roll-down' canvas partitioning that contains heavy-duty gauze screens. This zip-fastened, secure, tent-style canvassing not only provides sufficient light, but also contributes to the impression of living in the wild by delivering the audible ambience of your surroundings, while still maintaining a degree of comfort and safety.

A personal host or hostess and chef attend to all your needs whilst you enjoy your exclusive guide and game-drive vehicle, thus setting the leisurely pace that bests suits you, your family or small group of friends, during your stay at Okonjima Villa.
