The Etendeka Concession comprises an area of 50,000 hectares in the foothills of the Grootberg on the edge of the rocky Namib Desert. The ancient basalt has been eroded into a dramatic landscape of flat-topped hills and plains strewn with weathered boulders.
Etendeka Mountain Camp offers a unique, pristine wilderness experience which will appeal to photographer, naturalist, astronomer and geologist alike, as well as lovers of peace, quiet and open space. With a maximum of 16 guests, each guest is assured personal attention in a relaxed atmosphere.
Each of the ten shaded tents is provided with two beds, linen, towels, wash basin, a bush shower with hot and cold water, a flush toilet and electric light.
The Etendeka Concession is part of the old Damaraland where the wildlife, living alongside nomadic pastoralists, is truly wild and free to roam uninhibited. Hartmann's mountain zebra, oryx, springbok, giraffe and desert adapted elephant or black rhino may be seen during your stay. Evidence of these animals is often seen along with less conspicuous inhabitants - reptiles, small mammals, insects and other arthropods.
Many of Namibia's endemic birds occur here, such as Herero Chat, Monteiro's Hornbill, Rüppell's Korhaan and Rockrunner. An average annual rainfall of around 100mm supports scattered and often thick-stemmed desert-adapted trees and shrubs and varying grass cover.
