The Plains Camp

IN HONOUR OF THE CATTLE-FARMING HISTORY OF THE HANSSEN FAMILY

The NEW, Plains Camp design honours the Okonjima cattle-farming history. In the early 1920’s, Okonjima became a cattle farm and was bought by Val (VJ) & Rose Hanssen in 1970. They were well-established Brahman breeders and continued to farm cattle until the need for solutions to increasing livestock losses became pertinent and post-independence interest in Namibia as a tourist destination, escalated. In 1993, the herds of Brahman and Jersey cattle were sold, changing the face of Okonjima as well as that of Carnivore Conservation!

The Barn/ Entertainment area - AKA 'The Lapa', meaning 'Gathering Place', - includes, the dining and lounge area, the pool and the curio-shop; and hosts the 3-tier accommodation facility. Plains Camp is family & wheel-chair friendly!

The open, grass-plains were 'recovered' by removing and burning invasive Acacia-bush during 2012 and 2013, creating the plains-view, ensuring a great sunset most evenings.
