Surrounded by mopane scrub, Anderssons at Ongava is a family-friendly destination named after Charles Andersson, the Swedish explorer who was the first European to “discover” the Etosha Pan.
Accommodations consist of eight guests suites all designed with natural elements and colors to harmonize with its environment. There are seven twin-bedded suites with one king-size bed. For families and groups, the family unit consists of two suites which each come with one king-size bed which can be converted to two three-quarter beds. Every suite includes an en suite bathroom featuring a double vanity, both an indoor and outdoor shower, and a flush toilet. Each room also enjoys a private viewing deck with panoramic views of the bush.
The camp is located in the Ongava Game Reserve about three miles from Etosha National Park’s Andersson gate. In 1907, Namibia made Africa’s largest single saltpan the centerpiece of what was then the world’s largest game reserve, Etosha National Park. Amazingly, the massive Etosha Pan can be seen from space and makes up twenty-five percent of the park’s landscape. Millions of years old, it was formed by a slow drying lake. Throughout the year, this region provides amazing wildlife viewing. In the dry season, spectacular concentrations of wildlife converge on the dwindling waterholes, while in the rainy season herd of grazers diffuse across the revived grasslands. In addition, the area is home to excellent populations of elephant, giraffe, lion, cheetah, and leopard as well as the endangered black rhino.
