Anderssons Camp review

Compared to the other places we stayed the rooms are now quite tired and small.

Good game drive on the reserve although the jeep was quite full - all seats taken.

Convenient location for visiting Etosha on your own

Anderssons Camp review

This camp was below par. Service and staff friendliness was poor.

We understand the camp will undergo full renovation by the end of 2018, hopefully the camp will return in better shape.

Anderssons Camp

Our stay at Anderssons camp was very nice. Our key memory was the blind located on the camp where you could get really close to the wildlife drinking in the watering hole. The room seemed a little cramped, but other than that was very nice.

We loved Anderssons Camp

Everything about this camp was excellent.

We received a warm welcome and staff were all friendly and attentive throughout. We loved the fact that wherever you were in the main area you could see the waterhole. A giraffe was drinking when we arrived which was fantastic as it was our first giraffe of the trip. We also saw a rhino whilst eating dinner. Food was great and the accommodation lovely.

What a shame this camp is closing to tourists.

Expert Africa comments

As mentioned here and in our write up Anderssons Camp is closing in its current guise at the end of 2017. However it will be re-built in conjunction with the new Ongava Research Centre, the new camp tentatively called Andersson’s at Ongava is currently set to open in March 2019.

Basic, but access to Ongava reserve = great

Room was the most basic we stayed in on our trip. Tent flaps didn't quite do up, so very loud and flappy in wind.

The super thing about this camp though is access to the Ongava reserve + waterhole at the site. We had Rhinos come down to drink 30m away from us both nights at dinner and also lions one night.

The reserve is also the best place to see Rhino's in the area if you go on a driven excursion (we didn't see lions or Rhino's self driving in Etosha but saw both at Anderssons).

Service and food were both ok. Had to inquire about quite a lot of things and got forgotten one night at dinner.

Anderssons Camp review

The situation around the waterhole with a hide was very good. The rooms are due to be refurbished and they need it. Communication of activities when we arrived was rather poor and they were on the expensive side. The trip into Etosha was fine, the one in the Ongava reserve involved a great deal of driving but that was so that we could see a rhino and calf. We think the renovation should make quite a difference.

Great Safari but average camp

We had a great guide named Jakes who had very good knowledge, was very professional and made lots of fun.

Food was average, not very tasty, pasta too cooked, not much variety (had same game for lunch and dinner), they didn't take into account our dietary restrictions at all.

On one afternoon drive we were 9 people in the vehicle, too crowded, we could not really enjoy and take good pictures.

Housekeeping was not very good, I had the same bugs in the bathrooms for the 3 nights I was there, had the hot bottle in the beds only for the 1st night, last night the second room didn't have the bed being ready for sleep.

Lots of food waste, when we ordered one egg, they brought us two eggs, even when we insisted. We were asked to put the first drops of cold water when we had our shower into a bucket, but had the feeling housekeeping was throwing the water away, and one morning after the game drive, I found the tap left open!!!

Great photographer's hide at the waterhole

The tented rooms at Andersson's Camp are deliberately rustic.... in fact they are very simple and modest.

The reason to be here is the great photographer's hide to watch animals drink at the waterhole right in front of the lodge.
