Good location for Etosha & great safari drive

Location of this camp was great for Etosha. Having seen the standard of accomodation within Etosha National Park I would definitely recommend staying here or similar as Anderssons Camp was much better!

Out of all the places we stayed, the room here was the smallest and the bathroom felt quite cramped. There was no view from our room. However, this is a tented camp and it was all clean and well presented so no complaints! I also think that this is being re-furbished in the near future. Mosquito nets were provided around the bed.

We booked onto a game drive to look for rhino and had an amazing trip where we saw lots of animals including a mother and baby white rhino! Sundowner drinks were great and we stopped for these in a beautiful plain.

The dining area was well set up with a watering hole nearby. We were able to observe some antelope coming down to drink in the early evening.

Afternoon tea and cakes were good. Staff were all polite and friendly and made us feel welcome. They also allowed us to call our car hire company using their satellite phone after we had a flat tire in Etosha.

There is a nice-looking pool, which was bigger than most pools at other lodges, but we didn't have time to use it.

Anderssons Camp review

What a great place. We never saw any animals at the water hole, but it was at the end of the wet season so it wasn't to be expected.

The staff also gave us a full briefing upon arrival that it was the wet season and we wouldn't have a high chance of seeing animals there. They gave us a private guide for our duration whom we got to know well and was very responsive to our questions and wishes. We went on so many game drives and it was very memorable. The food was repetitive but good. We were unusual because we stayed three nights instead of the usual two.

The waterhole was a holiday highlight!

Warm welcome with ice cold very tasty lemonade and towels . Luggage whisked to room - no hassle . Dinner excellent .

The after dinner waterhole experience was a holiday highlight - very close to antelope , a male rhino , a female rhino with calf and whirling above our heads a troupe of night jars .

Anderssons Camp review

Another amazing place , amazing trips,great food, right next to Etosha. Let down by the rooms which were small, scruffy and had a lot of spiders, however they are very aware and are having a big upgrade this year. All the things to see more than made up for the rooms.

A good place to stay

Andersoons Camp is well located near the west part of Etosha National Park. We had a great guide who went out of his way to show us the wildlife.

Unfortunately it rained before our visit to Etosha and most of the animals found many sources of water and were not attracted to the waterholes. Nevertheless we did see many animals and we enjoyed our stay.

Anderssons Camp review

We opted for a game drive into Etosha on our first evening,We saw plenty of game but no Elephants, Rhino or Lion, just our bad luck. The guide was excellent.
In hindsight we should have taken the reserve game drive as they have Elephants and Rhino on the reserve..

The second day we self drove into Etosha, still no Elephants or Rhino although we did see a Lion at the camp waterhole after dark.

A two night stay would have been sufficient time for us.

Anderssons Camp review

Gorgeous camp - we loved it! Food was excellent, service very good and a we had a superb early morning drive.

The hideout was brilliant, as a black rhino appeared at the water hole just before dinner was served.

Pure magic!

Anderssons Camp review

Simple but well designed accommodation in particular the quirky bathrooms. Very friendly, attentive and helpful service. Although we were on a self drive the lodge guides were happy to chat around the fire in the evening sharing their knowledge and thoughts. The camp waterhole and hide are a highlight of the lodge. Very easy to spend hours into the late evening watching from the hide with a glass of red. Five lion and a cub drinking feet away one night and then a Gennet cat the next was a highlight of five weeks in the bush. Great for children as the overall lodge atmosphere is quite relaxed. Great location if one does not want to be in the park.
