The Etendeka Overnight Walking Trail Experience

 Set in the foothills of the Grootberg Massif is a unique new offering from Etendeka Mountain Camp and the Etendeka Community Trust (comprising the Anabeb and Omatendeka Community Conservancies). The experience promises to be an authentic and exhilarating engagement with nature. Trek through one of Namibia’s most remote and untouched landscapes on foot, have sundowners as you look out over never ending vistas of ancient rock formations and sleep under a blanket of stars. This is a once in a lifetime opportunity to connect with nature.

A unique guided journey into a remote conservation area filled with desert life.

Join some of Namibia’s most experienced and knowledgeable guides as they introduce you to the incredible life that lies largely hidden in this seemingly harsh but breath-taking landscape. With magnificent views of the ancient Etendeka basalt lava flows and flat top mountains, these rocky plains are home to an array of desert adapted plants and animals. Our passionate guides know the area intimately and will share anecdotes and information about this geologically rich and diverse environment. Track through dry Mopani shaded river beds and past other-worldly rocky outcrops as our guides identify spoor, indigenous animal, bird and plant species. Exploring this terrain on foot is a heightened and invigorating meeting of man and nature.

This is a slack pack hike through amazing, rough and rugged Namibian landscapes…Absolutely stunning experience!! Our guide gave us tons of interesting information about the area’s fauna and flora.
The Etendeka staff is wonderful and spoiled us beyond words! Food was delicious and plenty! The sleeping & bathroom structures are solid and beautifully set. We hiked in the middle of winter but were very comfortable and warm in the sleeping rolls supplied.

A must do!!

Sleeping under open Namibian skies

Namibia is one of the top destinations in the world for stargazing with its unusually dark night skies. On a cloudless night you will be overwhelmed by the spectacular sight of the Milky Way stretching overhead. The two rustic overnight camps make the most of sleeping under the breath-taking desert sky.
