"Andersson's at Ongava review"

3 nights Arrived 25 Sep 2023
"Great property, clean and modern rooms, great food, staff not as motivated as those at Wilderness Camps but still great, trip to Etosha park was least favorite part of trip because of traffic, dust.

Too many people for me so we only went once but did see a lot of animals. We felt that staying in Ongava itself was more interesting so the rest of our rides occurred here.

Walk tracking rhino was fun and got very close to 2 of them" See all these reviews: 11n in Namibia

"Andersson's at Ongava review"

2 nights Arrived 28 Aug 2023
"We had a brilliant time here.

The rooms are very high spec and spacious. The staff were great and so attentive - they all knew our names which is impressive. The food was great too.

The best thing by far is the watering hole and hide. While we were there we saw at various times a herd of elephants and a pride of lions by the watering hole and we got within a metre or two of them by going into the hide.

Our guide, Jason, was hugely knowledgeable and great company. He took us on a walking approach to two white rhinos - we were within 3 or 4 metres of them - a fantastic experience." See all these reviews: 12n in Namibia

"Andersson's at Ongava review"

3 nights Arrived 26 Jun 2023
"Very nice upmarket lodge, but it misses somehow a genuine safari feel
Restaurant area not protected from wind and/or cold for breakfast or diner! Movable screens should be installed in winter to protect guests.
Wifi was always faulty and waterhole camera was not visible on room tv screen (for 3 nights)
Sleepers would be nice in the room
All drives in private reserve were very nice (drive in Etosha a bit disapointing as far as game viewing is concerned)
Jason was a very nice guide" See all these reviews: 14n in Namibia

"Exquisite lodge, recently updated, with a convenient location near the southern entrance to Etosha.

Spacious modern rooms that spread out along the waterhole area. Our group of 6 had our own guide for the 2 days while we were there, exploring different areas of the large Ongava preserve and adjacent Etosha NP." See all these reviews: 15n in Namibia; 5n in South Africa

"Everything was excellent. A fantastic location and lodge.

The gravel roads in Etosha are awful and very uncomfortable, but it’s because so many use them.

Had wonderful game sightings, and also visited the Salt Pan, which we enjoyed." See all these reviews: 9n in Namibia; 6n in Botswana; 3n in Zimbabwe; 1n in South Africa
