Activities at Etendeka Camp

Game Drive

Game Drive

Arriving guests are met at the pickup point situated at Palmwag Lodge, where secure parking is
provided, and transferred by game viewing vehicle the 18km to the camp. This limits the number of
vehicles using the concession tracks. The transfer usually takes an hour and a half and provides an
introduction to the area and the guide will explain briefly the geology, fauna and flora and some
general details about the concession.

Nature Walk

Nature Walk

The morning activity is a guided three to three and a half hour nature walk. The distance is between
4 and 6 km with lots of discussion and interpretation. Conservancies are an important subject with
the value of the conservancy to the local communities being explained.

Scenic Drive

The scenic drive in the afternoon allows guests to travel to other parts of the concession and to have
a better opportunity to see the wide varity of animals that have adapted to this harsh environmnet.
All activities are accompanied by a guide; vehicles are restricted to the regular tracks and walks
follow routine paths.

After dinner your hosts, Dennis and Bonnie, will point out some of the more interesting
constellations, stars and planets with the aid of a ‘star pointer’ and a telescope. With minimal light
and air pollution in this area, star gazing is a treat to the eye.

A short ‘sundowner walk’ is offered in the afternoon after arrival at the camp where guests get the
opportunity to walk up a hill behind the camp to get a better idea of the spectacular setting and
location of the camp.
