Etendeka Mountain Camp is a small, rustic camp, located in a private 500km² concession area (effectively a private reserve) in the foothills of the Grootberg massif, which stands in stunning scenery amidst the ancient Etendeka lava flows of northern Damaraland. Here the basalt rock has been slowly eroded over millennia, leaving scattered boulders lying upon dramatic flat-topped mountains. One of the first 'real' safari camps in Namibia, Etendeka opened around 1993 and has been run since then by Dennis Liebenberg, ably assisted by his head guide, Bonnie.

Our view of Etendeka Mountain Camp

Etendeka is relatively simple by the standards of modern safari camps, and is exceptional in being owner-run for around two decades – a major achievement. What's even more impressive if that Dennis & Bonnie have retained their enthusiasm, and still manage to make sure that all of their guests have a really individual experience. Helped by Etendeka's fairly small size (max. 20 guests), communal dining arrangements, and simple but excellent home-cooked food, make this a friendly and relaxed camp. It will appeal strongly to those who love solitude, great scenery and walking – whilst the wildlife which is increasingly visible here comes as a real bonus!
