As a tailor-made tour operator, we often have to get creative when designing your perfect itinerary.

For example, your travel consultant might add this property to your itinerary if:

Location is a significant factor
It offers a unique feature that will enhance your experience
This is a last-minute booking and room availability is limited
Cost is a factor and you'd rather splash out on another part of your trip
This is a newly opened or refurbished property that we have not inspected yet

When designing your custom itinerary we have much to consider not least of which is the value proposition of every product and service included in your quote. In all cases we strive to give you the best experience possible within your budget so please feel free to ask your travel consultant to share their reasons for including this property in your itinerary.

Etendeka is pure Namibia: vast open spaces, total tranquility, simple back-to-basics accommodation and warm hospitality.

It's an eco-camp and that means a long game-drive transfer for starters, solar-heated showers, meals cooked over an open fire and a happy absence of paracomforts. And for many, it is this very away-from-it-all-ness that makes Etendeka Mountain Camp the highlight of their Namibia tour.

That's a bold statement but we know Dennis and his right-hand man Boniface (Bonnie) won't let us down. The Etendeka Concession is a county-sized tract of unspoilt wilderness between Etosha and Palmwag encompassing the eponymous plateau, the Namib Desert and the Grootberg Mountains.

A stay at Etendeka Mountain Camp offers an intimate natural encounter with the intriguing Namibian environment and the prolific species of plants, insects, wildlife and birds are treated with equal respect and enthusiasm. Geology, astronomy, history, conservation, culture and the time of day also get a frequent look-in.

Accommodation is simple and comfortable with walk-in tents, twin beds, en suite bathroom with flush toilet – this isn't the dark ages – hot running water and charming open-air showers. Homely meals are served al fresco or in the open-plan living area, most of the cooking is done over the coals - the Etendeka Chicken is a marvel of ingenuity.
