Overlooking a small waterhole, Okonjima Villa is about 10km from Okonjima's Plains Camp and its Bush Camp. The Okonjima reserve is home to the AfriCat Foundation, and visitors here get the chance to view some of Namibia's large cats and other carnivores and learn about their conservation.
The villa has two separate, private suites, together with a 'main house' which contains two bedrooms, each with an en suite bathroom. This whole 'villa' is kept for the exclusive use of one group – and can accommodate up to eight adults.
The lovely main house has two bedrooms each have their own en suite bathrooms, which have indoor and outdoor showers, and a bath with a very special view. Plus a large lounge and dining area, complete with an open, wood-burning fireplace. The modern kitchen has wine and soft drink coolers, gas and electric cookers, and a large refrigerator.
Outside is a stunning infinity swimming pool, surrounded on three sides by wooden decking, and a walkway to an open, shaded 'sala' – which has a roof fan for the days when the air is still!
The two separate and very stylish thatched suites each stand about 40–50m from the main house; one on each side. They have air-conditioning, high airy roofs with fans and heating, for the cooler months.
Large, glass-panelled folding doors look out onto spectacular panoramic views of the surrounding area, and these open doorways roll-down canvas gauze screens. Each an internet connection, work spaceand a well-stocked mini bar. The en suite bathroom has inside or outdoor bush-shower – with a view, of course.
A personal host(ess) and chef run the villa, and there's a dedicated guide and 4WD to ensure exclusive activities here – which follow the same patterns that Okonjima follows. So you can walk around the ranch on your own, hop on a guided 4WD, or follow a trail with one of your hosts, who will illustrate the lifestyle of some of the region's original peoples. A night hide helps enormously in spotting elusive nocturnal animals, like honey badger and porcupine.
Fondly known as the warm heart of Africa, Malawi is an undiscovered gem full of adventure.

We travelled with Falcon Safaris in Zimbabwe and Botswana for 16 days. Falcon designed a wonderful trip with private guide to the most interesting sites in both countries. The organization of the whole trip was excellent, flights within the country, accommodation and activites. The guides were very knowledgable and told us a lot about the countries, their history, people, economy and much more. Wevisited the Great Zimbabwe Ruins, the Victoria Falls and a number of national parks in both countries.
Rhino tracking was a real adventure! We had tremendous further game drives and saw very many animals - we did the Big Five. We had much more activities than planned and enjoyed very much.We strongly recommend Falcon Safaris to everyone planning a trip to Southern Africa and East Africa.
Our Consultant Vimbai was very helpful and accommodating. We stayed at the Elephant hills hotel which was nothing short of amazing.Our activities included a helicopter flight, dinner cruise as well as a morning game drive. All the activities were absolutely amazing.
We worked with Gertrude to schedule and organize everything and she did an excellent job. I asked a lot of questions via e-mail and she answered everyone in a timely helpful manner. Our guide at Victoria Falls was also great. He met us at the airport, provided a thoughtful tour of the Falls and got us to our next guide in Botswana. Our lodgings at River View Lodge were just as described- very comfortable and excellent food. All the staff were so pleasant and helpful. If I had to do it again I would arrange a morning boat ride as well. We only did the sunset boat rides and they were the high point of our entire trip- we saw so many animals and our guide was very knowledgeable. Just a great experience. Our lodgings at Oddball's Enclave was rustic and we loved it. So great to disconnect from the world for a bit. Leo, our guide, was the best - got us out and about, saw fantastic wildlife and got back to camp safely each time. Doc manages the camp so well. This whole trip was planned and organized by Falcon Safaris and we could not have been happier.
Falcon safaris have given my the correct advice with excellent service. The only suggestion will be to work closer with the lodges to confirm bookings as soon as possible. We have booked and pay our deposit a year in advance. We have only receive our final convermation from Chobe Safari lodge a week before departure. I do realize its not within your controle but with limit alternatives and a group of 14 people it becomes an issue to find alternative accomodation if the booking was cancelled.
Our passion for Africa and her rich diversity is what drives us to deliver superior itineraries for you. With over 30 years’ unrivalled experience, we believe your trip should be as unique as you are and so we tailor-make them for you as an individual.
