Andersson’s Camp

Quirky and affordable bush camp close to Etosha National Park

Andersson’s Camp

Andersson's Camp oozes character; the overall vibe is authentic, homely and relaxed, helped by its friendly staff. The least expensive of the four camps on the Ongava Reserve, guests here have the option to do guided walks and night game drives on their private reserve - much quieter than the Park itself. That said, due to its great location, fifteen minutes' drive from Andersson's Gate on the southern side of Etosha National Park, the camp is very popular with self-drivers too. It's a lovely option for families with an adventurous streak, children over 6 years are welcomed with open arms.

The hotel

The main area is a converted farmhouse, filled with black and white photos and recycled furniture - upside down pallettes for coffee tables. There is a curio shop and plenty of sofas to relax in, outside there is a large patio with long family-style dining tables. The farmhouse directly overlooks the camps private watering hole which is a magnet for game in the area. There is a campfire and small pool.

The rooms

There are twenty rooms in total; sixteen twin rooms and two family units. The small tents are canvas-sided and roofed, set on slightly raised wooden decks. The interiors are rustic yet stylish. The bathroom is at the back of the tent with a stone clad wall enclosing a tin bath/ shower and flush loo. There are ceiling fans, no AC. The family tents are two tented units linked by a boardwalk.
