Camp Elephant Erindi Private Game Reserve
Erindi is a resort-like private game reserve in a 70,000-hectare swathe of African bush in central Namibia with a diversity of habitats. Camp Elephant offers self-catering chalets and campsites inside this vast conservation area.
The chalets are arranged in a semi-circle around a busy waterhole which is floodlit for the full 24/7 game viewing experience when most creatures are at their most active.
Each unit comprises two twin bedrooms and an open-plan living area that extends to the shaded verandah; the lounge has a sleeper couch for young children and all the units have fully equipped kitchens and en suite bathrooms.
The campsite features grassy sites with shaded parking and private ablutions with solar-heated water, a bbq stand and a kitchen area with washing facilities.
Activities on offer at Erindi Game Reserve include game drives, night drives, walking safaris and visits to the San village and ancient rock art sites. Children under six are taken on their own safari and there are several wildlife rehabilitation and conservation programmes to learn about.
Erindi is ideally situated for self-drive family tours of Namibia. An easy three hours' drive from either Swakopmund or Windhoek the game reserve is in a malaria-free area and that all boils down to minimal driving time and maximum safety for you and your family without compromising on the African safari experience.
