The lounge area overlooking the watering hole is astounding, and the hide is fantastic. During our stay we saw rhinos (black and white), giraffe, warthog, zebra and lions drinking at the hole, and the most astounding flock of birds during the morning. The rooms are...More

I was looking forward to our stay here more than any other but was quite disappointed. Of course, the waterhole was fantastic and the little underground photographic hide was brilliant but the rooms were tiny, hardly anywhere to hang anything. No power points near a...More

If we were to do this trip again I would not stay in Etosha but here. This was an excellent retreat, great staff, terrific location near the water hole. The lodges here were quite special; though stepping into the tin bath of a shower was...More

A lively, rather quaint but comfortable and well-equipped camp. Staff were welcoming, attentive and efficient and our guide, Jakes, knew his stuff. Ideal for accessing Etosha for early morning or day long drives. Evening drives in Ongava great, especially if you want to see black...More

About
Description
Nestled in mopane scrub on white calcrete soils, Andersson's Camp is situated 4.5km from Etosha's Andersson Gate. The camp was named after Swedish explorer Charles Andersson - one of the first More Europeans to 'discover' Etosha, Africa's largest saltpan. The resurrected former farmstead that stands on the site now forms the centre of a charming camp fronting onto a productive waterhole. The 18 tented en-suite units are raised on decks for an enhanced view of the waterhole and surrounding vistas. The camp is an exciting example of sustainable construction; this model of eco-sensitive lodging provides an authentic, safe and down-to-earth experience for small groups, families and independent travellers to the Etosha region and is easily accessible by either road or air. Activities include morning and/or afternoon game drives in Etosha National Park, night drives (on request) and nature walks on Ongava Reserve. Subject to the availability of vehicles and guides, morning and afternoon/evening game drives on Ongava Game Reserve can be arraged at the camp at extra cost. Less

Yes. We saw a group of photographers use the under ground hide but not stay in lodge.

Dear Suzanneseeto, Thank you for contacting us. Yes Andersson's Camp does offer complimentary WiFi, however, this is only available in the main area. And due to the location of our camp there can be sporadic interruptions... More
