Fabulous camp

We had a great time at Anderssons.

The staff went out of their way to be helpful and friendly. Getting a week's worth of washing done for us within about 3 hours of arrival was much appreciated! Our safari guide, Jakes, was just great, locating a large pride of lions and a pair of white rhino for us in the Ongave reserve. Lions roaring outside of our tent during the night was a slightly scary but also amazing experience. The tents themselves are very comfortable and the food and drink of extremely high standard.

There were large groups staying both nights of our stay (taking up about 80% of the capacity). This limited the social contacts somewhat but the Andersson's team did a very professional job making the evenings pleasant for everyone.

The camp seems to us to be a perfect base for exploring southern Etosha - rather nicer than staying inside the park at Okaukuejo we thought.

Floodlit waterhole brilliant

One of our favourite camps. It was amazing to be almost "sleeping" amongst lions as they roared seemingly at our door! Wonderful to see giraffe, a pride of 10 lionesses, duiker, black rhino, innumerable helmeted guinea fowl, jackal, zebra at the waterhole on our first night to be followed by African Wildcat on the second night though we missed the brown hyena. The whole atmosphere of the camp was very relaxed and "intimate". Great quirky accommodation!

Anderssons Camp review

The highlight is the camp`s own drinking hole where you can see a lot of animals drinking from the water while you are sitting in your chair on the veranda. We really liked it.

We had a problem with rooms. We travelled with our 7Y old twins, who are willing to sleep in a separate room only when it is next to ours. In the camp we got two tents that were pretty far from each other. We were lucky, because we arrived early enough, so the hotel could rearrange and gave us two tents next to each other, but I really would advise them that next time they should double check in case of families the room allocation (i.e. with small children it is difficult to sleep in far away rooms, in the first place the children may not want to sleep alone, in the second place hotel guests may not be prepared logistically for this case - we packed all our staff together, so sleeping in not neighbouring rooms would have been pretty unpractical and discomfortable for us). Plus in our voucher was written that we get a family room.

Apart from that we enjoyed our stay in the camp. (And they compensated us for the problematic morning arrival with a good sundown tour where we saw not only a whole lion family but also two white rhinos, so we were amazed enough to forgive for the difficult start.)

Anderssons Camp review

Lots to love about Andersson's Camp - the welcome, the beautiful room overlooking the reserve, the quirky showerroom, the waterhole, the hide, the food, the lounge area … it was a great place to stay. And of course, proximity to Etosha!

Really enjoyed sitting in the open lounge/dining area by their waterhole - over the 2 nights we saw giraffe, white rhino, black rhino, zebra, springbok, birds etc. Nice afternoon tea, cake and snacks provided.

Food was very good both nights, and Vegetarian Husband delighted with his own pot of bean & coconut spicy stew and stuffed peppers!

Very easy access to Etosha - which was a fabulous experience. We spent the day there, returning to the calmness of Andersson's Camp for tea at 5pm.

Great place, would stay again.

Anderssons Camp review

The camp is cleverly and carefully designed using a lot of recycled material giving it a different, quirky feel. The hide at the waterhole adds another dimension watching the wildlife. The enthusiastic staff were as helpful as ever.

The game viewing, both in Etosha and on the Ongava Reserve, was excellent though we have never been driven as fast on safari before mainly because we had to get to the far end of Ongava where the best game seemed to be concentrated. And the roads in Etosha itself were both busier and more poorly maintained than the public roads we had travelled on - yet the entrance fee is a trivial amount {some scope for a tourist road tax perhaps?}

Wonderful!

We had a very warm welcome from Elizabeth and Heinrich. They were both very enthusiastic and very friendly, making us feel at home instantly.

Sitting at the water hole with a gin and tonic in hand, watching a cheetah drinking...Amazing. The hide is also excellent and it is possible to be up close to the water hole observing animals at close quarters. The food at Anderssons is also amazing as is their service.

This was a memorable experience for so many reasons. Thank you to all the staff.

Lovely camp right next to the park gate

Very friendly, chatty hosts created a lovely relaxed atmosphere.

Ideal for families (not at all stuffy) - it's surrounded by a fence, so perfectly safe for the kids to run off and explore.
Lovely rooms made out of recycled materials - quite quirky, almost felt like a beach hut!

Very nice food.

They have recently put in a hide next to the waterhole. This will be great - but it seems that the animals are adapting to the very close presence of humans there, and there were hardly any visitors, which was a shame.

Very nice camp.

Anderssons Camp is

The tents are slightly basic, but the tin bath was an absolute triumph! The staff fall over themselves to be helpful and hot water bottles in the beds are fantastic! The restaurant is great and the food lovely.
