An exciting development has just opened; the Okonjima/AfriCat day centre:
The Okonjima/AfriCat Day Centre caters for parties that want to see first-hand what AfriCat is all about, also have some lunch and a swim. Okonjima is situated perfectly half-way between Windhoek, the capital and international airport, and the Etosha National Park.
Time at Okonjima/AfriCat day centre is well spent; fun, informative and an opportunity to see the beautiful Okonjima reserve from the sandstone hills overlooking the plains below. Although as a day visitor, you won’t be able to go on a safari – however once visited you will want to come back and stay and see it all.
Day visitors will be able to see the work that AfriCat is doing, have lunch and a swim and feel refreshed both physically and mentally by the experience. AfriCat has a number of key objectives including creating awareness and promoting tolerance of large carnivores, educating youth about them, providing valuable research and a suitable environment for treating and caring for orphaned and injured animals.
A visit to the Okonjima/AfriCat day centre will take about one-and-a-half hours, departing at 11.00 in the summer and 10.00 in the winter time.
Samantha Bailey, a supporter of AfriCat, said “It looks amazing – you have done a fabulous job! And I love the Okonjima ochre on the walls…”
So, if you are coming to Namibia, make sure that Okonjima and AfriCat are on you agenda.
