Andersson's Camp

Lodges near Etosha National Park

Andersson's Camp is located 8kms inside the Ongava Game Reserve. The close proximity to Etosha Park's western gate is also a major drawcard, especially for vistors who wish to game view around both of these excellent wildlife destinations. Andersson's Camps' boundaries are completely fenced which prevents large animals and predators from wandering through, making it relatively safe for guests with children. Other highlights inside the camp include a floodlit waterhole and an excellent hide.

This camp is beautifully set against the backdrop of a low range of dolomite hills, a feature that provides relief to the otherwise flat surrounding area. Good populations of a variety of Namibian wildlife exist here, this includes both black and white rhino, roam the surrounding plains and dominant mopane woodland within the reserve. Populations of the endemic Anchieta's dwarf python, striped tree squirrel and a localized subspecies of rock hyrax can also be found here.

The resurrected farmstead is the central focus of the camp. This model of eco-sensitive lodging provides an authentic, safe and down-to-earth experience for small groups, families and independent travellers to Etosha. There is a waterhole located directly in front of the farmhouse. Strategically placed seating areas throughout the main lodge area, enable you to watch a variety of visiting game.

On either side of the main farmhouse are 20 luxury tents. They are a mixture of calcrete stone-cladding, canvas and wood, elevated on wooden decks for a better view of the surroundings. The en-suite bathrooms, feature a uniquely designed open-air, solar-heated, private shower. Each tent has a fan, mosquito net and a tea/coffee station.

All meals and drinks are served in the restaurants lapa area. There is a breakfast buffet. Lunch and dinner can be ordered from the chef's 'a la carte' menu. Wine and dine under the stars, or have a nightcap or two around the inviting camp fire.

The Ongava Game Reserve is dominated by mopane woodland, whilst a low range of dolomite hills, the Ondundozonanandana Range break up the otherwise flat landscape. Ondundozonanandana is Herero for 'the place where a boy took the calves.' Andersson's Camp has been named after the trader Charles John Andersson (two s's not one!). He travelled through Namibia in the 1840's and 50's. The gate into Etosha National Park, Andersson's Gate, which is south of Okaukuejo Rest camp, is also named after him!
