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.

Nice camp!

Nothing special, it's just a nice place with nice staff right at the gate of Etosha.

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.

Good rather than super.

Friendly and helpful welcome. Good rather than excellent 'room'. Meal OK.

Not the 'intimacy' of Kulala or Damaraland, and somewhat less striking location.

Anderssons Camp review

An excellent location for visiting the Etosha Game park and a lovely welcome from the Manager and team.The atmosphere at the Camp was very friendly overall.One evening we were invited to attend a talk on rhino conservation being given to a small group. An added bonus !

Our only criticism of the tent was that it was a little on the small size and very close to an electric fence - parallel to our verandah.

During our short stay there was not a great deal of activity at the waterhole nut the underground hide was appreciated.

Anderssons Camp Exceeded Expectations

We had previously stayed at Ongava Lodge but had opted for the less expensive Anderssons Camp on this trip and I'm so glad we did. This camp is charming. Well located with a waterhole and hide for viewing, though not many animals around on our visit. We loved the accommodation, so different from others we stayed in as it was based on using local materials. The bathroom was particularly charming with stone walls, an old tin bath as shower tray and corrugated iron roofing. The beds were very comfortable and there was water and tea/coffee facilities. Not hugely spacious but plenty of room for bags, clothes etc. Doors led out to a veranda with overhanging trees where a number of birds were observed.

The lounge and dining area are comfortable with plenty of seating and they overlook the waterhole. Meals are at individual tables. The food was very good and service friendly. An effort is made to make your dining experience special.
Staff at Anderssons Camp were warm in their greetings, efficient in their organisation and the guide who took us for an afternoon drive in Ongava was excellent.

We drove ourselves into Etosha and found the Camp to be well located for doing so. Okaukuejo waterhole is in a lovely situation with a variety of animals coming and going, the down side is that there are likely to be a number of other people around. Driving west to Ozonjuitji m' Bari waterhole was well worth it. Large numbers of animals and the place to ourselves. Returning towards Camp we took the detour to Sprokieswoud which has a slightly different feel with quite a few trees including baobabs.

Back to the Homestead

Coolest, most holistically integrated camp I've ever seen anywhere. It just proves that a camp does not need to be luxurious in order to be outstanding. The facility had a feel of a renovated homestead (many renovated old buildings in downtown Manhattan have the same feel) that fit into their environment without flash or unnecessary decoration/fru-fru.

The staff, an extension of the homestead, has similarly toned-down but very smooth operating manner. It is about attitude: a confident but well-wraped demeanor who never forgets that he/she works in the hospitality industry and is facing a client. Food, another expression of life on the homestead could lean more heavily on recreating a past life style.

The guides were hilarious, funny, knowledgeable and had a cool confident attitude that says: you are in professional hands. They seemed they wanted to be there rather than it was just a job. Whoever put this camp & team together had a point to prove and did it flawlessly. This camp spoke both to my mind and heart.
