"Wonderful tented camp"

2 nights Arrived 22 Oct 2019
"A nice welcome with cold towels to freshen up. The tents were spacious and very well appointed and located. The full board meals were all excellent.

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"

1 night Arrived 12 Oct 2019
"We overnighted here and didn't spend a lot of time.

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

"Average"

1 night Arrived 21 Sep 2019
"The road to this place is horrendous, the room was OK but the food was poor.

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"

2 nights Arrived 17 Sep 2019
"This is a lovely camp, very welcoming with excellent staff. Drinks were included on the Full board basis.

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"

2 nights Arrived 2 Aug 2019
"The camp is delightful with very friendly staff and lovely tented rooms. However, we did feel it was a little under-staffed and felt
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
