Friday. You will be picked up between 08:00 to 08:30 from anywhere within the Windhoek city limits.

We travel north, stopping at small towns along the way including Okahandjima, where we have time to visit Namibia’s largest wood carving market.

Continuing north, passing through farmland, we aim to arrive at Okonjima during the middle of the afternoon, giving us time to set up our camp and to relax in the shade for a while before heading out on to the property to take part in the afternoon.

In the afternoon, you will be taken on a tour to view some cheetahs that are part of the Africat rehabilitation programme. Most of the animals currently living at Okonjima have been rescued from various desperate situations, being orphaned or caught in a trap and the aim of the rehabilitation process is to re-introduce them into the wild.

After our educational tour, we will return to camp and prepare for dinner under the African stars. Overnight at the camp.
