UNLEASH IT: WITH FULL-DAY SELF-DRIVES OR GUIDED DRIVES INTO THE ETOSHA NATIONAL PARK.
Andersson's Camp is a model of eco-sensitive lodging and provides an authentic, safe and down-to-earth experience for small groups, families and independent travellers to Etosha National Park. It is also easily accessible by road. Energy-saving initiatives include solar-heated water for showers, while throughout the camp most of the natural vegetation has been retained.
This former farmstead has been tastefully rebuilt to modern-day standards. The old farmhouse now forms the main area of Andersson's Camp with 20 tents (16 twin-bedded and 2 family units) radiating outwards into the secluded mopane woodlands typical of the region. Tents are a clever mix of calcrete stone cladding, canvas and wood, with double-door entrances and a small veranda that is an extension of the elevated wooden decks on which the tents are constructed. The en-suite bathrooms continue the unique design. The family units comprise two tents connected by a raised boardwalk.
Etosha is Namibia’s premier game viewing destination. Large herds of plains game concentrate around the waterholes in the dry season, making for exciting wildlife viewing. Most general game are present on Ongava Reserve as well as within Etosha, including springbok, gemsbok, wildebeest, Burchell's zebra, Hartmann's mountain zebra, waterbuck, red hartebeest, giraffe, eland and the endemic black-faced impala. Lion move between the Park and the reserve and both black and white rhino can be seen.
Birding is also good with Ostrich, Kori Bustard and raptors like Greater Kestrel in abundance. Local specials include Short-toed Rock-Thrush, Namaqua Sandgrouse, Double-banded Courser, Yellow-bellied Eremomela, Spike-heeled Lark and Acacia Pied Barbet.
Andersson's Camp's close proximity to Etosha Pan is ideal for full-day self-drives or guided drives into the Etosha National Park to take in the plethora of game found here.
Etosha National Park is Namibia's premier wildlife destination. At almost the size of Switzerland it is certainly one of Africa's largest game parks. Large herds of plains game concentrate around the waterholes in the dry season, whilst the summer months' sporadic rainfall produces a profusion of new life - with pronking baby springbok and comical young wildebeest.
Andersson’s Camp is situated in northern Namibia along the southern boundary of the Etosha National Park, with Anderson Gate being the closest access to Etosha National Park. It is located in a private Ongava Game Reserve. It can be reached by air from Windhoek in 1 hr 30 mins or from Swakopmun in 1 hr 45 mins.
