Andersson's Camp is located in Ongava Game Reserve, adjacent to Etosha National Park, south of the pan, and is named after Swedish explorer Charles Andersson who discovered the vast salt pan in 1851.
Surrounded by scrub-covered plains and set against the backdrop of the low Ondundozonanandana Mountains, the main area of Andersson’s Camp - a tastefully rebuilt former farmstead - overlooks a waterhole. From here 20 tents radiate outwards - secluded in typical mopane woodland.
The unusual tents are a clever mix of calcrete stone cladding, canvas and wood - elevated on a wooden deck with a double-door entrance, a small verandah with an uninterrupted view, and an en suite bathroom with an open-air shower. This eco-sensitive accommodation uses energy-saving initiatives such as solar-heated water for showers, and natural vegetation has been retained throughout the camp. The proximity to Etosha means that activities focus on game drives there, as well as within the private reserve.
