Anderssons Camp review

The camp is cleverly and carefully designed using a lot of recycled material giving it a different, quirky feel. The hide at the waterhole adds another dimension watching the wildlife. The enthusiastic staff were as helpful as ever.

The game viewing, both in Etosha and on the Ongava Reserve, was excellent though we have never been driven as fast on safari before mainly because we had to get to the far end of Ongava where the best game seemed to be concentrated. And the roads in Etosha itself were both busier and more poorly maintained than the public roads we had travelled on - yet the entrance fee is a trivial amount {some scope for a tourist road tax perhaps?}

Wonderful!

We had a very warm welcome from Elizabeth and Heinrich. They were both very enthusiastic and very friendly, making us feel at home instantly.

Sitting at the water hole with a gin and tonic in hand, watching a cheetah drinking...Amazing. The hide is also excellent and it is possible to be up close to the water hole observing animals at close quarters. The food at Anderssons is also amazing as is their service.

This was a memorable experience for so many reasons. Thank you to all the staff.

Lovely camp right next to the park gate

Very friendly, chatty hosts created a lovely relaxed atmosphere.

Ideal for families (not at all stuffy) - it's surrounded by a fence, so perfectly safe for the kids to run off and explore.
Lovely rooms made out of recycled materials - quite quirky, almost felt like a beach hut!

Very nice food.

They have recently put in a hide next to the waterhole. This will be great - but it seems that the animals are adapting to the very close presence of humans there, and there were hardly any visitors, which was a shame.

Very nice camp.

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.
