ETAMBURA CAMP

30/05/2010
  • In Herero etaa mbura means “see the rain all over” and appropriately the construction of Conservancy Safaris latest venture is on the summit of a hilltop in one of the remotest parts of the Kunene Region, with an average rainfall of approximately 100mm per annum.  Rainstorms in these regions can be spectacular events and anyone fortunate enough to witness one of these deluges – often accompanied by a fireworks display of thunder and lightning – from a high vantage point is sure never to forget it.
  • Etambura Camp – for the exclusive use of Conservancy Safaris’ guests – will definitely be something to look forward to on your journey into the semi-arid north-west of Namibia.  Five accommodation units, each in a hand-picked location with a private deck overlooking breath-taking vistas and en-suite bathroom, will certainly be a highlight on your African experience and afford you an opportunity to relax in private and at your own leisure.  The communal lapa area extends to the edge of the hill and is the perfect setting to enjoy a good meal, excellent wine and good conversation with a bird’s eye view over the rolling hills and holy plains of Onjuva.  Enjoy a stroll on top of a hill and explore the diverse selection of indigenous plants that flourish here in their natural habitat.  Watch the sun set and the moon rise, marvel at the endless expanse of a starry sky and listen to the sounds, scents and smells of true Africa.
  • The construction of Etambura Camp in such a remote area is not without its difficulties.  Trucks lugging building materials over rugged tracks, lack of telecommunications and the transport up and down a hill are just a few of the logistical challenges facing Trevor Knott under whose watchful eye construction is taking shape.  A pasture scientist by profession, Trevor has moved into the building industry, and takes extra care to preserve the plants and trees that grow in this area.  The result is that the Camp will have a unique finish incorporating both flora and natural rock as an artistic feature.
