Nestled in the rugged nature of the Grootberg mountains, Etendeka Mountain Camp takes you back to the basics. For those who are willing to give up superfluous luxury and dare to step out of their accustomed comfort zone, a breathtaking experience awaits you!

The basalt formations and mountains created by ancient lava flows that surround Etendeka Mountain Camp in north-western Namibia provide dramatic views and an almost surreal landscape that you will probably never get tired of.

Ten discreet Meru tents are cleverly embedded in the nature around the main building of the solar-powered camp. The focus here is on environmentally friendly accommodations that respect nature and allow guests to access the pristine environment.
Most tents are equipped with single beds and comfortable mattresses, however double beds are also available. Due to the layout of the tents, you can even enjoy the wonderful view from your bed.To perfect the bush experience, an open-air bucket shower awaits you, which can be enjoyed either hot or cold. Each tent is discreetly furnished with all the necessary amenities such as bedside tables and seating, as well as shady seating in front of the entrance, inviting you to simply enjoy the moment, take a deep breath and immerse yourself in the rugged Namibian wilderness.

The main building of the camp, which is also decorated in a rustic, warm style, includes a bar with the same fantastic views. Here the hot midday hours can be perfectly spent in the cool shade and in the evening, it invites you to have cool drinks and share exciting stories of the adventures of the day. To make relaxation even more perfect, there is also a swimming pool with comfortable deckchairs for the sun lovers amongst you. A lounge in the main part of the building is also the dining room, where breakfast, lunch and dinner are served together at a long banquet table. Simple, fresh, wholesome meals are prepared, either on solar or on open fires, and enjoyed often under African skies.

Etendeka Mountain Camp is all about experiencing nature, so it offers various leisure activities to explore the surrounding nature and animal kingdom. 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.

Besides the sunset walk, which you can even experience privately without a guide, and the stargazing after sunset, the guided morning walk is probably the absolute highlight. Professionally trained guides lead this hike and will give you the opportunity to get to know and understand fascinating details of nature. As there are no game fences anywhere in this area, a hike is even more exciting as you never know what animals you will see today.

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 Namibia’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!
