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 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.

Lovely spot

Anderssons Camp was a lovely spot.

Proximity to the water hole is fantastic with the hide so close you feel like you are practically sitting in the middle of the animals. Bring warm jammies if you are sleeping there in the winter.

Staff was very attentive to our kids.

Anderssons Camp review

Anderssons camp is a due an overhaul later in the year and this would definitely improve the lodge BUT, given this, it was still a great stay.

The rooms are more basic than many of the others but quirky and fun.and the waterhole and hide are absolutely excellent viewing.

Recommended.

Anderssons Camp review

The best waterhole we have come across in this area. Sit back and relax with a drink and wait for the game to come to you. Also excellent hide right by the waterhole gives a different perspective. Don't miss out on the sundowner game drive with a good chance of seeing lions.

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.

Anderssons Camp review

This place is closing this year and it shows.

It is very tired and has no energy.
