Head to Etendeka Mountain Camp for an exhilarating experience

15 April 2019 | Supplements

Set in the foothills of the Grootberg massif, Etendeka Mountain Camp appeals to the traveler who is prepared to step outside of his or her comfort zone and experience this remote wilderness with its harsh beauty in an authentic way.

Etendeka Mountain Camp and its environment remind a person that we are all guests of Mother Nature.

Pathways lead to ten private shaded en suite Meru tents with eco-friendly open-air “bucket” showers. This is the epitome of simple comfort in a rugged and harsh landscape.

The accommodation area is connected by pathways to the main dining area where simple, fresh, wholesome meals are prepared, either on solar or open fires to be enjoyed under African skies.

Your days here are spent exploring the area on foot and in open game drive vehicles with the exceptionally knowledgeable guides. Safaris are not fast paced, but rather a privileged introduction to an environment that holds many of Namibia’s unique natural attractions.

A rich and diverse environment can be explored on foot or with a scenic drive.

The Etendeka basalt lava flows and flat top mountains are nothing short of spectacular and although seemingly inhospitable full of hidden life.

The Etendeka overnight walking trail experience set in the foothills of the Grootberg Massif is a unique new offering from the Etendeka Lodge Company and the Etendeka Community Trust (comprising the Anabeb and Omatendeka Community Conservancies).

The experience promises to be an authentic and exhilarating engagement with nature. Trek through one of Nambia’s most remote and untouched landscapes on foot, have sundowners as you look out over never ending vistas of ancient rock formations and sleep under a blanket of stars. This is a once in a lifetime opportunity to connect with nature.

A highly successful Joint Venture Tourism agreement exists between the Omatendeka and Anabeb Communal Conservancies, Big Sky Lodges and Dennis Liebenberg for the management of the 400 km² Etendeka Concession.

All operations on this concession directly benefit the people of these two conservancies who live in remote and isolated areas bordering the concession in the North.
