Dramatically set in the foothills of the Grootberg massif, Etendeka Mountain Camp appeals to the traveller who is prepared to step outside of their comfort zone and experience this remote wilderness with its harsh beauty in an authentic way. Here one is reminded that we are all guests of Mother Nature.
Pathways lead to ten private shaded en-suite Meru tents with their stunning eco-friendly open-air “bucket” showers. It is simple comfort in a rugged and harsh landscape
A rich and diverse environment to be explored on foot or on a scenic drive. The Etendeka basalt lava flows and flat top mountains are nothing short of spectacular and although seemingly inhospitable are full of hidden life.
A highly successful Joint Venture Tourism agreement exists between The Omatendeka and Anabeb Communal Conservancies, Big Sky Lodges and Dennis Liebenberg for the management of the 400km² Etendeka Concession. All operations on this Concession directly benefit the people of these two Conservancies who live in remote and isolated areas bordering the concession in the north.
This stamp certifies Etendeka Mountain Camp as 100% compliant to the Covid-19 protocols of both the NTB and the World Health Organisation. Eco Awards Namibia had been certifying tourism businesses, in terms of environmental sustainability, since 2005, and Eco Awards Namibia assessors are qualified and trained to do third party audits. An independent external review system ensures objectivity and lends validity to assessment outcomes.
