Etendeka Mountain Camp

Northern Namibia

Rating: Basic    

Etendeka Mountain Camp overview

The emphasis at Etendeka Mountain Lodge is on nature.  The surroundings are simply stunning with the vistas going on for miles. You will be able to go on nature walks and game drives to explore the area and seek out the wildlife.  It may seem that there is very little at first, but it's amazing to see how many different species can survive in this hostile environment, from the larger mammals such as the desert-adapted elephant and black rhino down to the smaller insects, snakes and scorpions.

The tented lodge was built with nature in mind and operates on environmentally sound principles as much as possible.  Most of the electricity is provided from solar power for both the tents and the main areas. But you won't be roughing it, all home comforts are catered for; comfortable beds, flush toilets, hot water and a delightful 'bucket shower'.  Delicious food is prepared using solar powered appliances and open fires and you can dine under the beautiful star filled African sky - this is luxury in its simplest form.

There is a pathway that connects the guest tents to the main area where you can mingle with your hosts and other guests and exchange stories and ideas. There is a new additon of a swimming pool by the main area, a refreshing dip is often welcome after a morning walk or game drive. There is no rush at Etendeka, it's more of a slow-paced safari, taking in the beautiful sights that mother nature has gifted.


Open:  Etendeka Mountain Camp is open all year.

Location:  The camp is located within a private concession in the foothills of the Grootberg Massif in the Kunene region of northern Namibia. Self-drivers meet at Palmwag Lodge and are picked up from there for a 'game-drive' to the lodge.

Rooms:  There are 10 tents with en-suite facilities, hot water, bucket shower and flush toilet.  The tents are simply furnished but have everything you would need.

Activities:  The camp offers game drives, but one of the main attractions here are the guided walks.

Facilities:    There is an open-sided main area with swimming pool. The camp is run by owner Dennis Liebenberg, and his head guide Bonnie, the camp has been open in excess of 20 years and these two know the area like the back of their hand.

Children:  Children over the age of 8 are welcome at Etendeka.

Health:  This is a malarial area.

Communication: Mobile phone signal is intermittent at best and there is no internet available.

Mrs. Mair Nott

"we were well looked after here. The tented accomodation was very good and the food was excellent, especially as it was so remote. The staff all made an effort to give us information on the area and animals."

Mr. Brian Samuel (05/09/2019)
"A different (more wilderness) experience to other accommodation which we really enjoyed. Great location miles away from anything."
