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.

Anderssons Camp review

Wonderful - Corrie is a star and so are the other staff - guides/cleaners/cook etc. Fabulous place and would go back here any day.

The water hole and everypone's passion for what they are doing stays in the mind's eye. MArvellous

Anderssons Camp review

Unfortunately we only had 1 night here, best rooms and service of the entire trip.

Food and facilities excellent, the safari to view the Rhino was expensive but well worth it, a fantastic experience.

Anderssons Camp review

This lodge was an interesting and enjoyable experience.

Fabulous location although half of the rooms were tucked away at the back, without a view and not facing the area where the animals appeared.

Service was exceptional and the food and (included) wine were excellent.

Tremendous animal viewing

This was a wonderful camp.

The management was very hands on, came and talked to everyone each evening and advised on the best waterholes etc. It had a really friendly atmosphere and for my birthday I had a cake, personal sing song from the staff and a present from our waitress.

We saw all the animals we could have wished for in Etosha and then at night we had the rhino. What else could you ask for?

Comfortable and stylish Anderssons camp

Couldn't be better placed for the park unless you stayed at a restcamp.

We loved the reclaimed and recyled nature of the place - very stylish in an understated way. Very clean everywhere.
Animals right outside your room verandah - giraffe, rhino, wilderbeest, springbok etc. and lions roaring in the night. Very exciting.
Very friendly atmosphere.

Food for the vegetarian was a little hit and miss - nothing on the first night apart from the main meal minus the meat. On the second night we were told that the starter was Carrot and Lentil soup - Dave swallowed a mouthfull and screwed up his face - it was full of finely shredded meat. This is not a good thing at all.

We then both waited for well over an hour for the main course. Everyone else had gone on to dessert. They must have been trying to do something vegetarian for Dave. When it finally arrived he had the same as me, minus the veg, but with a great big potoato. On the third night they had prepared something in advance and it was fine. So, it would seem that his dietary requirements did not reach the kitchen even though we told them when we arrived.

We had chance to use the pool, but I was put off because there was nowhere to sit by it in shade. Maybe they had a sun shade they could bring out, but I didn't try and find out.

Anderssons Camp review

Lovely camp, quirky decor in accomodation.

Felt very close to nature, roar of the lions during breakfast before our first venture into Etosha. Good view of waterhole in front of camp.
Easy access to Etosha, first view of two lionesses on road between camp and gate.....fantastic!
