Excellent Game Reserve and Drive!

We had a great time and saw many white Rhinos and also many other wild animals. The Game Drive Team is too excellent. Thank you so much.

It couldn't have been a better experience.
Great in all senses: the staff, the place, the activities, the views, the educational side of it, the information provided and the food.
Everything really well done and the care for the animals top of the pops!
We're locals to Namibia; we'll come back for sure.
Thanks for the splendid experience!!

Waterber Plateau Namibia
Feb 2020 • Family
Rising as an Island of colour some 200 Metres above the ground. With it's eye-catching brick-red sandstones formations you can do some cool photographs .
You can also explore the parks and surrounding on a proper 4X4 off-road and Camping adventure.
You can also view a variety of birding and games as possible with a guided tour in one of the national parks around.
Hiking the Waterberg Plateau is also Superb.

Simply the best campsite
Aug 2019
We visited a lot of very good campsites in Namibia, but this was the best of the lot. It has wonderful facilities including a large, covered, concrete-based kitchen area with a free supply of wood for the brai pit. The campsite had 2 (private) outdoor toilets - and what a view from them, and two outdoor showers. It even had its own viewpoint over the reserve. 100 m away there is a swimming pool. A short climb up the path takes you to the day centre with lovely cafe and shop. You can buy meat for the brai from there. Continue upwards from the day centre to reach the top of the hills for a fantastic viewpoint. The day centre will book you on a tour if you want; you can view the leopards and cheetahs which are kept temporarily in large compounds before release, or you can take a tour out into the wider reserve tracking the animals. The tour guides are friendly and knowledgeable, This campsite came highly recommended in the Lonely Planet guide- and we could see why.

We got wonderful view of leopard
Jul 2019
There are quite a few animals in the game reserve and we were particularly lucky to see an ardwark. However, the main purposes of the visit is to try and get close to one of the leopards. We did and saw her marking her ground by rubbing and squirting. The other highlight is the cheetah enclosure, though this are effectively in a large holding area and not in the wild.
One word of warning: in the Southern hemisphere winter, it can get bitterly cold in the jeeps.

Fantastic Campsite
May 2019 • Couples
Wow, what a campsite. We stayed in a total of 15 campsites during our 5 week trip around Namibia and Botswana. Omboroko is in our top 3 for sure.
Huge site, 2 showers and 2 toilets, electricity, water, kitchen area, shade area, fire pit and braai. Clean and well cared for. Lots of bird life to see along with a duiker or two.
We stayed here for 2 nights and it was fantastic. So quiet and peaceful. My husband took some beautiful "milky way" photos from our campsite.
We went on the tour to see the Africat Centre along with a game drive, enjoyed it very much. Informative with a great guide.
The next morning we went on the leopard tracking drive, again it was very good. We were collected at our campsite and driven to the main building where we had coffee and muffins before setting off.
We'd come back here in a heart beat. From the staff on the gates when you first arrive into the game reserve, each and every member of staff we met was friendly and helpful.

Great vibe here and very good food.
Mar 2019 • Couples
Before arriving here we had been forewarned by the Travel Agent who we had seen in Windhoek that there had been late changes as a result of falling number of cheetahs, who were now confined to a separate area in the Camp. The alternative to the cancelled walking Cheetah Tour didn’t sound particularly attractive but there wasn’t an alternative so off on Leopard tracking at 6:30am which was good. See leopard and his kill, a Kudu.

We were on the Africat session in the afternoon. This started by an explanation of the Foundation and then into a museum and a hall with stuffed animals which gave a very good idea of the relative size of the various animals — not just the Cat family. From here we went to the Cheetah enclosure and there were six there to greet us!

Magical game drives, lovely campsite
Dec 2018 • Family
The close encounters with leopards and cheetah in the reserve were extraordinary. We went leopard tracking in the evening and cheetah tracking in the morning with Martin and learned all about AfriCat. We walked with a cheetah and stood as he strolled past us just a couple of metres away. It was a wonderful experience. Some of the big cats are collared so the guides and researchers can find them by radio tracking but they live wild. They are not that easy to find anyway!

We stayed in the Omboroko campsite where our site was enormous and completely private, with our own loos and showers with bush views. The campsite manager brought us firewood. All the staff were really nice and helpful. We would highly recommend this to everyone and next time will stay longer.

Amazing
Mar 2018 • Couples
Superb accomodation and food coupled with excellent opportunites to view cheetahs, leopards and other animals with really expert professional guides. We only wish we had been there for longer than our one night stay to really appreciate and benefit from all that the Reserve offered. The drives were just brilliant, we got really close to cheetahs and had 3 separate leopard sightings - including one at night - just amazing.
