Etendeka Mountain Camp is found at the ancient and rocky foothills of Nothern Damaraland. The powerful and dramatic landscape serves as a home for both wildlife and nomadic pastoralists. The basalt rock of the mountain has been slowly eroded over the centuries, leaving a rugged and uninhibited landscape, unlike anything you've ever seen. The emphasis here is on nature, and this eco-friendly camp bears testimony to her many riches.
Accommodation is in ten en-suite meru tents, which are connected by pathways to the main dining tent. Extensive use is made of solar power throughout, both in the kitchen and the guest bathrooms, as well as for general electricity requirements. Necessary comforts have not been overlooked though, and these include flush toilets, hot-and-cold running water and the stunning open-air “bucket” shower. The camp's focal point is the open-sided dining area, with its small, fully inclusive 'bar'.
In terms of activities, one cannot miss the unique and unforgettable "Quartz Walk", where guides will lead you through an untainted terrain, littered with amazing quartz and agates. There are game drives to get you better aquainted with the locals - the sighting of Hartman's Mountain Zebra, oryx, springbok, giraffe or perhaps even the desert adapted elephant or black rhino may add an exciting bonus to your stay.
There is no rivaling the Namibian night sky. Stars upon stars will greet you after the sun has said its goodnight. And guests are encouraged to come out and take it all in. Whether it be to congregate for meals, sundowners around the campfire or just to stare up at the ilimitable cosmos.
