Family-friendly Andersson’s Camp, named for Charles Andersson, the Swedish explorer who first described the Etosha Pan, takes the past and moves it decidedly forward.
Nestled in mopane scrub on white calcrete soils, Andersson’s Camp is situated 4.5 km from Etosha’s Andersson Gate. The camp was named after Swedish explorer Charles Andersson – one of the first Europeans to “discover” Etosha, Africa’s largest saltpan.
The resurrected former farmstead that stands on the site now forms the centre of a charming camp fronting onto a productive waterhole. The 18 tented en-suite units (including two family suites) are raised on decks. The camp is an exciting example of sustainable construction; this model of eco-sensitive lodging provides an authentic, safe and down-to-earth experience for small groups, families and independent travellers to the Etosha region and is easily accessible by either road or air.
Activities include morning and/or afternoon game drives in Etosha National Park, and morning and afternoon/evening drives (on request in camp) and nature walks on Ongava Reserve. The sunken hide at the waterhole in front of camp is an excellent place from which to watch wildlife coming down to drink.
Unique Selling Points
- Closest access to the most productive area of Etosha National Park
- Family friendly, welcoming groups of different sizes
- Quirky, “eco-chic” architecture
- A sunken hide looks out over a popular waterhole
NOTE: Andersson’s Camp will be closed for rebuild from 1 January 2018 to mid-March 2019. Ensuring a high value and exclusive experience, the upmarket Andersson’s at Ongava will have 7 guest units and a family unit. During this closure, the new campus for the Ongava Research Centre will also be established at the Andersson’s Camp site.
