BUSH CAMP IS NOW OPEN AGAIN
After 14 years of hard labour – Bush Camp deserved a facelift and some real tender love and care.
Our first 2015 Bush Camp guests arrived on the 6th at around 11am and casually entered the lodge, completely unaware that only hours ago – this beautiful and tranquil lodge, was a hive of activity and 12 hours prior, a building site with tractors and trucks and bulldozers chugging away at building rubble, staff working around the clock and stress levels rising sky high . . .
After being closed for 4 months – Bush Camp is back on track and is one of the most popular camps in the Okonjima Nature Reserve. Here are a few ‘Happy Snappies’ . . . the professional pics will follow soon!
“Team Okonjima have been busy labouring over the remodel of Okonjima’s popular Bush Camp. Rather than a few superficial alterations, Okonjima voted for changes almost as sweeping as the British political landscape.
The eight thatched chalets have had a second ‘rondavel’ added to provide a separate lounge space for guests whilst increasing the size of the bedroom. Décor and furnishings have all been enhanced.
Perhaps the biggest difference in sensory terms is that the roll-down canvas/shade cloth blinds have been replaced by glass windows. There are still shade cloth panels to either side to allow for plenty of fresh air in the bedroom.
To echo the original design, the new lounge Lapa at each chalet is completely open to the front so guests can enjoy the sights and sounds of the surrounding bush.
Internal floors have been levelled in both the main Lapa and guest chalets to make the camp more user-friendly. The pathways have also been upgraded to a hard surface. The main Lapa has wood-burning stoves dotted throughout and additional comfy seating. ” Read more: Okonjima’s luxury Bush Camp
