Both campsites offer secluded tent pitches (8 and 4 respectively) on the soft, red sand of the Kalahari, separated by bushes and trees, and a pool. Each pitch is equipped with shade roof, tap and grill and has its own shower/toilet in the central ablution block with hot and cold water.

We arrived after a slow drive due to rain and a very muddy drive to the campsite. When we arrived the reception was not at all friendly and we were directed to our campsites. Unfortunately, nobody had been to clean the ablutions or empty the bins and the shower was cold.

Our staff were taken by surprise by the rainfalls end of September which is unusually early. There was a lot of extra cleaning up to do and the firewood obviously got wet. Please accept our apologies for the hiccups during your stay. Usually our staff is praised for their friendliness and helpfulness. They clean the ablution buildings (offering each pitch its own shower and WC) every morning after departure of the guests and make sure in the evenings that the fire is burning in the "donkeys" to heat up the shower water. We hope you at least enjoyed exploring our valley on one of the five nature trails including our "botanical garden"... Greetings from the private nature reserve Waterberg Wilderness

We had a very warm welcome from the lady at the first reception who looks after the pitches. Beautiful camp but basic. There is water and a braii on the pitch with wood provided, but no electricity. You have you own shower and toilet which are basic and lack privacy because the

We are delighted to hear that you enjoyed "meeting" our white rhinos ;-) Just to avoid any misunderstanding: We offer six hiking trails in the valley of our private nature reserve (including our "botanical garden" and our History Path) which guests are welcome to walk on their own. The hike onto the plateau, however, is only allowed with a guide, as we have an open border to the national Waterberg Plateau Park which is home to dangerous game such as buffalo and black rhino. Best regards from the private nature reserve Waterberg Wilderness

Thank you for your feedback. We like to apologise for the lack of firewood and hot water. Our campsite team does collect firewood which is for sale at the campsite reception and usually lights the fire at the "donkeys" (flow heaters). Maybe there was a misunderstanding concerning your campsite: Except the few sites for groups our sites are laid out for one car only. Kindly accept our apologies. Unfortunately our solar power system does not allow plugs on the campsites. Please understand. For smooth payment we recommend to make use of our secure online payment facility (see link on our website). Great to hear that you enjoyed our Plateau Hike. Best regards from the private nature reserve Waterberg Wilderness

We stayed at Anderssons Camp for 2 nights and it was absolutely beautiful! 4 great campsites and a nice braai area with wood provided. It was great to have our own loo, however, the showers could do with a coat of stoep paint to brighten them up..however, nothing wrong with the

Yep, our campsite staff reported the damage, too, and our maintenance team is attending to it. We do our best to keep the baboons at bay, but it's an ongoing task. Please allow us to use this opportunity to ask all future guests to help us by not feeding the baboons and other wild animals and by making sure that food is stored away safely in the car. You are welcome to come back in a heartbeat - there are three more nature trails and a history path to explore, not even to mention our guided Plateau hike, Rhino drive and Cultural tour to Hereroland... Heartily greetings ;-) from the private nature reserve Waterberg Wilderness

Great to hear that you enjoyed your stay on our Waterberg Plateau Campsite. In fact, we have two pools since we extended the campsite in December ;-) Sorry for our staff at Waterberg Valley Lodge serving dinner too quick. Our manager told them to be more attentive. However, we are sure that our waiters would have waited a bit with the next course if you had asked them to. Best greetings from private nature reserve Waterberg Wilderness

Yes, with a good 4x4 is everything accesable. Most of the times is a normal car good enough.
