Rhino rules

Not sign posted but take first right after leaving Etosha via Anderson gate, pass through the security gate and its a short drive.

Well laid out camp with a floodlite waterhole as the centre point to the restaurant. Black Rhino's, lions and jackals. Activities are limited but there was a walking trail around the camp with a guide. Staff were extremely friendly and informative.

Anderssons Camp review

We arrived early afternoon and were offered lumch. Our cabin was a semi-tented one built in an eco-style with reclaimed materials, with its washroom open to the sky. It was basic but fully comfortable. The cabin was on the perimeter of the camp, within the camp's electric fence although its verandah opened onto the open countryside beyond the electric fence. It was a few feet above ground level but we felt a little uneasy that there was little protection between us and what might be roaming outside!

We were excited to see the silhouette of a giraffe's head looking through the window just before dawn. It was grazing on a tree about five yards away.

The dining area and lounge for the camp overlooked its own waterhole, and we could sit on comfortable settees and wait for animals to approach. The waterhole is relatively new and as yet gets only occasional animal visits, although during our dinner we watched a giraffe approaching and drinking.

We were taken a guided walk outside the camp by Frans, armed with rifle, who pointed out to us some of the more interesting trees, plants and insects, animal tracks and a few kudu and oryx. Just outside the electric fence, yards from our cabin, he pointed out recent lion paw marks. (This increased the concern, noted above, that there were only a couple of strands of unelectrified wire between this and our verandah!)

Once again we were struck by the friendliness and helpfulness of all the staff. The manager in particular was both helpful and very concerned when my wife suffered a bout of sickness, bringing her medicaments and ensuring that she had all that was needed.

The camp is still waiting to have mains electricity connected, and as a result electricity is turned off during the night. This was particularly awkward for us, with my wife being sick, and our torch batteries not having sufficient juice to last fully when needed. Water pressure for flushing the loo also seemed to depend on the availability of electricity.

Anderssons Camp review

A new camp which neds time to mature. It is close to Etosha but within its own reserve.

The staff were veryfriendly and helpfiul.

Our game drive was a little frenetic but would probably satisfy those new to wildlife viewing.

Anderssons Camp review

Very good . Imaginative use of recycled material and outside bathroom fitted very well and comfortably with room, less spartan than Entendeka.

Water hole attracted game easily viewed from outdoor lounge. Distance from game park should be noted, nearly half an hour drive to actual beginning of Park. Lack of signposting to camp at Anderssons Gate . Charges for activities not publisied , we were surprised to be charged 700 dollars for a one and a half hour walk - was it an error ? Range of activities available not very clear

Staff very friendlyand helpful (prticularly trainee Agnes). Three nights sufficient as two days in Park enough to cover western and central area ,and two days sitting in car is enough. Wish there were possibilities for guided walk within park.

Anderssons Camp review

A good location with it's own waterhole but somehow we did not take to this camp, the food was average and a bit cold.

Despite the over attentive service we did not feel that relaxed here.

Our first rhino!

This is a great place and has been newly built. We got off to a bad start here in that we couldn't find it - the only sign you see from the road (just before the entrance to Etosha) is for Ongawa, not Anderssons Camp. However, the camp is part of Ongawa so after clarifying that, we went in and found the place easily enough - spotting our first giraffe on the way! What a thrill.

This place has its own water-hole, which attracts a wide variety of birds and animals. We saw our first rhino of our holiday here, which generated much excitement! The camp has been built according to ecological principles (reduce, reuse and recycle being in evidence when you look closely) and has used many of the materials from the previous farmhouse.

Their swimming pool used to be the farm's water reservoir, and they use solar panels (what better place to use them than Namibia!) The staff are very young here and a young couple manage the place. We found the manager very pleasant and lovely with the guests. All the staff are very enthusiastic and speak excellent English (along with many other local languages of course). The food here was excellent.
