Okonjima - Home of the Africat Foundation
The cost is per person per night, an overnight stay is necessary to take part in the large carnivore tracking activity.
We suggest visiting Okonjima, essentially a rehabilitation centre, if you'd like to see big cats close-up, support the rescue programme and track big predators in the 4500 hectare rehabilitation park. This is a very worthy programme to support. Highlights include seeing wild leopards close-up, hunting for themselves and a 90% chance of seeing spotted hyena in the wild. Tea with the lions and excellent opportunities for photography.
