Andersson’s Camp is located in the Ongava Game Reserve which shares a common boundary with Etosha National Park. Andersson’s Camp takes its name from Charles Andersson, the Swedish explorer who first ‘discovered’ the Etosha Pan with Sir Francis Galton in 1851.
The lodge is located a short drive from Andersson’s Gate, the southern entranceway to Etosha National Park. At 30,000 hectares, Ongava is one of the largest private game reserves in Namibia and a haven to large concentrations of wildlife including lion, black and white rhino, elephant, giraffe, cheetah and several species of antelope including the rare black-faced impala.
This former farmstead has been tastefully rebuilt to modern-day standards. The main area comprises an under-cover and open-air dining area, a spacious lounge and bar and looks out onto a thriving waterhole. Andersson’s Camp is environmentally conscious. Energy saving initiatives include solar-heated water for showers.
Andersson’s Camp features 18 tents, including two suitable for families. The tents are a mix of 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 family units comprise two tents connected by a raised boardwalk.

Please note Anderssons Camp will temporarily shut at the end of 2017 and is set to re-open in 2018 when it will include the Ongava Centre of Environmental Excellence.
