Etendeka Mountain Camp, Damaraland
Etendeka Mountain Camp
Our rating: Superior | Property style: Tented Camp
A gem of a property in Northern Damaraland, Etendeka Mountain Camp is nestled at the foot of the Grootberg Massif and overlooks the Etendeka lava flow, meaning guests here enjoy stunning, almost moon-like views wherever they look. The accommodation is ten simple yet comfortable meru-style tents with en suite bathrooms, each boasting flush toilets, running water and bucket showers, and offering beautiful views out to the surrounding area. Pathways lead guests to the main dining tent where simple, rustic food is lovingly prepared and enjoyed around a large communal dining table. The focus at Etendeka really is one of simplicity and being at one with nature – enjoying the vast open skies, being in good company and learning more about this extraordinary area from the experienced team of guides. Activities here vary between guided nature drives and walks with your guides. Whilst there is plenty of game in the area, including desert adapted elephant and rhino, as well as cheetah and antelope such as oryx, sightings are never guaranteed to these are regarded as nature drives as opposed to game drives. Walks will allow guests to see smaller animals, learn about the varied plant life of the area and how it has adapted to living in such a harsh, waterless environment.
