"Malansrus Tented Camp Post Covid Sept 2022"
All of the staff were exceptionally friendly and helpful, the tents were great and the food wonderful. Again huge thanks from the 2 vegans in our group who were very impressed with the meals they had!
We did a sundowner drive and elephant tracking the following day and we were lucky enough to have the same guide - Dios. He was knowledgeable and went out of his way to make sure that both trips were successful. He had a great sense of humour and we all thoroughly enjoyed our time at Malansarus and would love to return at some point.
I wouldn't hesitate in recommending Malansarus to other travellers." See all these reviews: 11n in Namibia
"Wonderful tented camp"
The initial greeting on arrival was a little rushed with explaining the facilities and tours available. A little bit more time could have been allowed to settle in before we had to decide on what to do.
We declined the elephant drive as we had already done one for half the price. However we were were very impressed and thoroughly enjoyed the other activities that were offered such as hiking around the hills surrounding the property, the visit to the living museum, a visit to Twyefelfontaine and a very special sundowner drive, all with Lazarus the guide who was most friendly and informative."

"Malansrus Tented Camp review"
We found the check in easy, tents clean and showers fine. The dinner was average, with overcooked chicken, but we enjoyed the meal overall, and indulged in a glass of wine. A nice touch and much appreciated.
Breakfast was quick and good." See all these reviews: 15n in Namibia
We did a game drive from here to see the elephants and our guide was very good but the distance we drove to reach the elephants along very bad roads was too much.
Should have done a game drive from Damaraland camp but were too tired from our previous days travel." See all these reviews: 22n in Namibia; 2n in Zimbabwe
"Malansrus Tented Camp review"
The two excursions available were good, our guide, Peter was excellent. The only drawback was that it was a long drive to see the desert elephants.
The food was good except for the chicken served on the first night which was severely undercooked so we didn't eat it." See all these reviews: 14n in Namibia
"Malansrus Tented Camp review"
a bit "end of season" (though wasn't!)
Because of the drought (no proper rain for 3 years) there is nothing to do or see here because the river is completely dry.
We did a day trip to Twyfelfontein to see the Desert Elephants and the rock engravings (both of which are fabulous and a MUST) but it would have been easier to stay closer to Twyfelfontein." See all these reviews: 15n in Namibia
