In honour of the cattle farming history of the Hanssen family
In the early 1920’s, Okonjima became a cattle farm and was bought by Val & Rose Hanssen in 1970. They were well-established Brahman breeders and continued to farm cattle until the need for solutions to increasing livestock losses became pertinent and post-independence interest in Namibia as a tourist destination, escalated. In 1993, the herds of Brahman and Jersey cattle were sold, changing the face of Okonjima as well as that of carnivore conservation!
Each of the 14 Standard Rooms and 10 exclusive and spacious View Rooms enjoy a view across the Okonjima grass plains!
3 en-suite, twin tents are available for guides & pilots.
