Guide Sightings Report Peak Season at Okonjima

August – November 2013

Namibian safaris are truly wonderful and as The AfriCat Foundation rehabilitates cheetahs, wild dogs, hyenas and leopards, there are opportunities to see these beautiful carnivores in their natural environment either from game vehicles or from tracking activities on foot within the 20 000ha / 200km2 rehabilitation nature reserves.

OKONJIMA and AFRICAT had a very successful peak season and our guests had wonderful sightings of cheetah, wild dogs, hyenas and of course of the 2 popular leopard mothers with their cubs, as well as rehabilitated Dizzy and cub and rescued Penta and her family.

Leopards were still our most popular trail, but tracking rehabilitated carnivores that once lived a ‘life in captivity’, but are now hunting independently – always touches the hearts of any animal lover.

A total of 596 leopard sightings were recorded and the other carnivores added up to; cheetahs 461 sightings, wild dogs 18 sightings and hyenas 16 sightings.
