ANDERSSON'S CAMP

Situated on the boundary of the world renowned Etosha National Park, amidst the game rich savannah of the Ongava Game Reserve, Andersson's Camp is a modern-day retreat for guests to explore the breathtaking diversity of fauna and flora in the region.

Andersson's Camp takes its name from famed explorers Charles Andersson and Sir Francis Galton, who in 1851 were the first Europeans to set foot at Etosha Pan, the world's largest saltpan.

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.

Andersson's Camp's close proximity to the Etosha National Park is ideal for full-day self-drives or guided drives into the Park to take in the plethora of game found here.

Etosha 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 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.
