Andersson’s Camp, Etosha, Namibia

Family-friendly Andersson’s Camp takes its name from Charles Andersson, the Swedish explorer who first ‘discovered’ the Etosha Pan.Set in the private Ongava Game Reserve, Andersson’s Camp looks over a large waterhole which attracts plenty of thirsty wildlife.

This former farmstead has been tastefully rebuilt to modern-day standards and combines comfort with eco-friendly living.The old farmhouse forms the main area of Andersson’s Camp with 18 elevated tents, including two family suites, radiating outwards into secluded mopane woodlands. Tents are a mix of calcrete stone cladding, canvas and wood, with a small veranda.

  • The Ongava Reserve is famous for its good populations of both white and black rhino
