Anderssons Camp is

The tents are slightly basic, but the tin bath was an absolute triumph! The staff fall over themselves to be helpful and hot water bottles in the beds are fantastic! The restaurant is great and the food lovely.

Anderssons Camp - Hmmm.

I believe that the Camp is under the same ownership as Kulala - how different could two places be? Elizabeth and Heinrich (?) are very efficient hosts and responded extremely well when something went wrong but, compared to Kulala, there was no "warmth" in the greeting or interaction with guests. One felt that everything was scripted rather than natural.

The afternoon game drive was very poor, saved only by a fortuitous encounter with a white rhino very late on. We discussed this with Elizabeth and, when we came to pay the bill, there was no charge for the drive - we did offer to pay half but Elizabeth refused to accept it and, for that, we have to give full marks for good client relations.

The staff were very good and attentive, with good humour.

Anderssons Camp review

We loved the water hole. A lot of animals (including a black rhino) came to visit us.

The staff was very, very welcoming and acommodated our late check-out.

Anderssons Camp review

The accomodation was as anticiapated and the balance between 'camping out' and some elements of luxury were achieved. Unfortunately the weather was extremely cold during our stay so the overall experience ( especially in the bathroom) was marred by the weather. No fault of the lodge. The laundry service was quick and efficient.

Food was average, with no choice for starter or desert. The main courses were not particularly memorable or hot. The waiting staff were very friendly and helpful. Breakfast was disjointed and not sufficent time was allowed between the start of service and the departure time of the morning activity.

One guide was allocated to us throughout our stay which was good as it gave you a chance to get to know him. He was extremely good on the afternoon property guide ( ie in Ongava itself ) but the day excursion in Estosha was less productive. It was not helped by the fact that we were extremely cold throughout the morning which took the edge of the trip. It was a shame that more blankets etc had not been provided.

A convenient lodge south of Etosha

There aren't many placed where your arrival is greeted by a rare black rhino!

A waterhole just in front of the lounge/dining area was always busy with game and birds. Our tent looked straight over the reserve and was simple, with the use of recycled materials in keeping with the camp's green aspirations. Like many of the places we stayed, there were only 2-3 tents occupied which meant we received very personal service. The meals were excellent and varied.

We did not experience the Camp's own activities as we drove ourselves through Etosha, for which the camp, just 5km from the main park gate, was very convenient.

Nice Tent camp

The camp was nicely set in front of the water pan so you can watch some animals come and go all day long and even giraffe walked by our tent.

The canvas tent was basic, but there was enough hot water for shower, and no complain. The food was delicious, home cooking taste. The staff was very friendly and helpful. We had Ramon as our guide, and he was very good in his energy, knowledge and he was very sincere.

Etosha park was a litte drive from the camp, and we wonder why we needed to leave so early when it was so cold and animals were even not at the water pan. He took us to the night drive in the reserve.

Anderssons Camp review

There was a very different feel to this camp, with its tented accommodation, again which we all loved. Cleverly done with all of its eco touches. Being based around the watering hole meant we saw a black rhino, and water buck plus other animals whilst eating more delicious food.

The staff were lovely and friendly

The camp gave great access to Etosha and we really enjoyed being able to drive ourselves around the Park. We did not see quite as many animals as we had hoped but that did not matter, we still had a great day on a self drive safari.
