Reviews of Etendeka Mountain Camp
They do not necessarily represent the views of Expert Africa.
Nice place to stay for 2 nights - it would be too quiet for us with the kids for any longer. The tents were simple and with lovely views - we particularly like the shower set-up.
Bonnie's guided walk was hot but very interesting - In hindsight we would have preferred to do it even earlier before the heat of the day.
Dennis gave us a wonderful lesson on the stars with the aid of his laserbeam and telescope at 5am and that was one of the highlights of our holiday.
Amazing experience and would thoroughly recommend this to anyone who is travelling to Namibia
Considering where they are and how difficult it is to get supplies the standard of food was amazing. This set the standard for the rest of the holiday.
Staff were very friendly and knowledgable, Dennis and Claire made us very welcome and Bonnie was a brilliant guide. I even had a great massage!
Accommodation was good - very clean
Etendeka for that wilderness experience
Location excellent but ambiance of camp site marred by extensive clutter of timber, machinery, work-in-progess air. Tents basic but quite okay. Dining area okay. Food uninspired but okay
Owner absent but staff excellent - welcoming, informative. Guides first rate field skills incl birds, languages, cultural info etc. Good walking in dramatic landcapes with plenty of varied game incl leaopard, aardwolf as well as good nrs of the usual beasts.
This is a camp for people who want to enjoy a wilderness experience and don't mind a somewhat makeshift air about the camp and facilities.
Must Stay location - fabulous
One of our top two locations on our trip. Dennis and Barbara made the whole experience out of this world. Location is fabulous - totally away from everywhere, incredible scenery, totally quiet, extraordinary evenin skies. Camp is comfortable, relaxed, basic and fun. And Dennis' enthusiasm for geology, fauna and flora is infectious. As Chris wrote - what they do they do very well.
Fabulous and informative hiking in the morning and great animal viewing in the afternoon - so different from Etosha; were rally lucky to see a leopard as well as herds of Hartmann Zebra and giraffe etc
Two days is too short
