Artist's Description

Originally started as a small guest farm, Okonjima expanded the Hanssen family’s hospitality to eco-lodge bush camps on approximately 54,000 acres (22,000 hectares) of Nature Reserve. And not just any nature reserve, the home of the AfriCat Foundation, a non-profit organization for the conservation, protection and rehabilitation of threatened cheetah, leopard, and other wild carnivores.

This Africat sign hangs at the entrance to the wildlife area of the reserve. Look closely, for the letter “I” is dotted “EE” because the foundation’s founding principle was that any “AfriCat” they rehabilitated would be successfully released as “A free Cat”. So as the sun goes down on another day at Okonjima, one of it’s wild guest climbs a tall anthill to look out beyond the reserve, and wonder, if tomorrow, he will again be a free cat.
