Anderssons Camp review

Great location right outside the gate to Etosha.

Loved the watering hole right by the main reception and eating area.

The accommodations were unique and fun.

Same comment about kid-friendly food. Otherwise, the food was really great.

A bit run down

The best things are the water-hole in front of the verandah and the private reserve it is set in where we went for a very nice game drive.

The tents are quite old and run down and I found them quite tacky and small. The food was OK.

The least attractive camp in which we stayed

This place seemd rather tired and we did not enjoy the corrugated iron room.

Very noisy moving around at night. Described as quirky.

More accurately somewhat neglected.

Anderssons Camp review

By the high standards of Wilderness Safari lodges, Anderssons Camp wasn't quite there. For me, the quality was good but a notch down.

On the game drive I had, we got up close to lion and rhinos (great in its way) - but too close. The animals were clearly disturbed. The guiding lacked sensitivity and was too-focused on achieving two photo ops. (I realise this is a guiding dilemma.)

Andersson's Camp

A charming, laid-back camp with the feel of an old-school safari as befitting its origins as a 19th century farmhouse. The tented room was small but comfortable with a deck that opened nicely onto areas filled with wandering game. The common areas were extremely open and well-situated for viewing the water hole very nearby. The game blind accessible by easy walk from the common areas afforded absolutely amazing close-up views of various game (including a large pride of lions), and the floodlit water hole attracted several rhinos for more amazing views.

Andersson's location just outside the southern gate (Andersson's/Okaukuejo) to Etosha makes it an ideal jumping off point for visits to the park and the water holes in the vicinity of Okaukuejo, including Okondeka,the water hole with the highest concentration and variety of game we saw on our four separate visits to the park.

Staff inform us that Andersson's is about to undergo an upgrade of facilities, to reduce the number of cabins and provide a more 'luxurious' experience, We hope that the camp doesn't lose its distinctive 'retro' charm in the process.

Excellent Etosha stop. Good waterhole

A well run camp, though not as special and Kualala or Doro !Nawas. A large party made its presence felt and on the first night when the black rhino came to the waterhole they all started moving the very heavy chairs and making a noise, scaring the back rhino away within a few minutes. Frustrating! Maybe a notice on the terrace reminding guests to respect the need for relative quiet when animals come to the waterhole would be good - it was clearly awkward for the staff to say anything to the party.

Staff were excellent and very friendly, well informed and helpful.

I was concerned that Anderssons Camp might not be as good as staying inside Etosha with access to the waterhole in the evening, especially as we saw nothing at waterhole first night. But it was completely worth staying at Andersson - in fact brilliant. We saw black rhino both 2 and 3rd nights and watched a pride of 13 lion for about 2 hours on the third night. Fabulous!

We had no need to use any of the guide services - we saw masses in Etosha driving ourselves, including a lion killing a springbok and lots of birds. It was perfect and we so much enjoyed driving around ourselves and spending as much time as we wanted at various spots.

Black rhino at the waterhole

Wonderful lounge/dining areas overlooking waterhole, which can also be viewed from a 'hide'. Great to watch giraffes, antelopes and others coming to drink.

Rooms were okay, though very hot. Only did one activity: a 'walking safari', which didn't involve much walking! Drove ourselves into Etosha for game viewing and the camp makes a good base for this.

Very good food, excellent staff.

Convenient location, friendly service.

Set on the Ongava reserve which has abundant wildlife and the camp has its own waterhole which attracts lots of wildlife you can see from the terrace. Also very convenient location for visiting Etosha. Great guides who work really hard to make sure you see the wildlife you want to.

Slight negatives are that the accomodation is a bit more basic and tired over the other camps and the quality of the food was quite average but service was always with a smile.
