Anderssons Camp overview

**This camp is closed for rebuilding - expected to re-open in mid-March 2019**

Andersson's Camp is named after the Swedish explorer, Charles Andersson who first discovered Ethosa, along with Sir Francis Galton in 1851.  The Ongava Reserve, which is home to Anderssons Camp is adjacent to Etosha, it's a reserve with excellent wildlife populations of its own and is known for having healthy rhino numbers. The region is also home to lions, elephants, oryx, springbok, zebra.

Once a farmstead, the old farmhouse has been totally rennovated to modern standards and now houses the main area of camp which comprises of the lounge, dining room and bar, all open plan and open sided.  It overlooks the waterhole, which is particularly popular in the dry season with a host of wildlife coming down to drink each day, enjoy this view from the comfort of the lounge.  When the rest of the camp was built, one of the prime considerations was to have minimum impact on the environment.  Sustainable materials were used resulting in a unique look.  Fans and lights in tents run on solar powered as is the hot water solar heated.

There are twenty guest tents built on raised decks.  Each room has been carefully designed using reclaimed wood and stone as part of its eco-friendly approach and includes a double or twin beds with ceiling fans, a veranda and a semi-open en-suite bathroom with basin, toilet and shower.
