Etendeka Mountain Camp is a small, rustic eco camp, located in a private 500km2 concession area (effectively a private reserve) in the foothills of the Grootberg massif. It’s an area of 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 1991 and has been run since then by Dennis Liebenberg, ably assisted by his wife Claire and head guide, Bonny.

Our view of Etendeka Camp

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