Get to Know Otjiwarongo

This neat junction town is the main springboard for safaris to Etosha National Park and the Waterberg Plateau, with the option of an overnight stay at the award-winning AfriCat Foundation.

This neat junction town is not only the springboard for safaris to Etosha National Park and the Waterberg Plateau, but also the home to the award-winning AfriCat Foundation.

One of the largest towns in northern Namibia, Otjiwarongo and environs is best known as the site of the AfriCat Foundation, which lies on a guest farm 35km south of town. Serviced by two small luxury lodges, AfriCat has earned several ecological and ecotourism awards for its pioneering work in the rescue and release of big cats since it opened in 1997.

It also some unparalleled close-up encounters and photographic opportunities with all the big cats, i.e. leopard, lion and cheetah. A tour of the clinic and information centre offers deeper insight into its annual rescue of more than 50 cheetahs and leopards annually, more than 80 percent of which are released back into the wild.
