"Etendeka Mountain Camp review"

2 nights Arrived 18 Jun 2008
"We are real outdoors people so this suited us fine but I'm not sure it quite matched its description. For example Etendeka and Erongo Wilderness both describe themselves as wilderness BUT luxury in tents However there is a big difference between the 2 and someone expecting the same might be disappointed in Etendeka.

Bonny the guide was brilliant. The walking and game drives really suited us" See all these reviews: 14n in Namibia

"Etendeka Mountain Camp review"

2 nights Arrived 4 Jun 2008
"Simply the best camp around - forget the luxury camps, this is the one to stay in and spend time at, nowhere gets you closer to nature and you can't beat a few drinks at the end of the day with Dennis and then looking at the night skies." See all these reviews: 19n in Namibia

"Etendeka Mountain Camp review"

2 nights Arrived 15 May 2008
"A split opinion on this one. Two of our party would have liked a little more comfort, two of us just absolutely loved the remoteness of this place and the sensitive way the place is run in the surroundings - run by two families we felt very welcome.

It is not an easy place to live, but to share it for a time a priviledge. It will be interesting to see how they develop the reserve whilst maintaining its integrity.

To see the game trully in the wild, not in a reserve was wonderful - thank you to the elephant who wandered by and the zebra who were in their own heaven as the grass was so good - but beware the lions will be back." See all these reviews: 14n in Namibia

"Etendeka Mountain Camp review"

2 nights Arrived 26 Apr 2008
"An unexpected highlight of the trip. The tents were really comfortable, and the bucket showers were amusing and effective.

The highlights were the morning walk and the evening game drives, all of them with Boni, an exceptional mine of information about geology, the natural environment and local customs, all imparted with enthusiasm and modesty.

Also a superb careful driver, and a great scout - he retraced our steps to find lost sunglasses, which were then posted on to our next destination by our host, Claire. Surely beyond the call of duty !" See all these reviews: 13n in Namibia; 3n in Zambia

"Etendeka review"

2 nights Arrived 23 Oct 2007
"As mentioned previously, this was our favourite place, along with Mowani. Such a comfortable camp, yet very environmentally responsible.

The location in the Etendeka mountains was superb. The walks were interesting and we learnt a lot about the geology and the flora. The game drive with Dennis was great - we saw lots of Hartmanns mountain zebras as well as the usual other animals." See all these reviews: 17n in Namibia

"Etendeka review"

2 nights Arrived 22 Oct 2007
"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." See all these reviews: 7n in Namibia

"Amazing Etendeka"

2 nights Arrived 20 Oct 2007
"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"

2 nights Arrived 16 Oct 2007
"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." See all these reviews: 13n in Namibia

"Must Stay location - fabulous"

2 nights Arrived 25 Jul 2007
"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" See all these reviews: 13n in Namibia; 2n in Botswana
