Etusis Lodge Karibib
Etusis Lodge is situated in the Etusis Nature Reserve which covers more than 12,000 hectares. It is approximately 2 hours of driving from the cities of Windhoek and Swakopmund.
The lodge fits in harmoniously with the environment. The landscape changes
between the Otjipatera mountain range that rises up to nearly 2,000 meters, the
white marble hills, Savannah and arid areas. An unbelievable variety of wild
animals, plants and minerals can be found on ETUSIS.
Hiking on marked tracks This trail is approximately 30 km long and really only
suitable for the more experienced hiker, although there are several shortcuts
described under different letters. Should you choose this trail, it is
strongly advised that you take sufficient water, a packed lunch and a radio
telephone, as well as keys for the rest huts on the way.
The initial 23 km are relatively flat Savannah. There is a good chance that you will catch sightings on this route of Kudu, Oryx, Blesbok, Springbok, Warthog, Steenbok, Bat-eared fox, Suricate and many different kinds of birds. Further on the trail leads through a valley between the white marble hills and the red Otjipatera mountain range, where the Hartmann's mountain zebra, the Klipspringer, Rock dassies and Chacma baboons roam. Kudu and Impala are also a frequent sight.

Etusis has a very good quality red quartzite and is a fine place for the climber wanting to practice his skills. The Etusis Game Reserve is also ideally situated 19 kilometers south west from the town of Karibib on route from Windhoek to the Spitzkoppe mountain. Etusis has a rustic but comfortable mountain hut overlooking a river with rock pools where game come s to drink. It is only a 5 minute walk to the climbing rock face. Meals are supplied from the Lodge upon request on a daily basis at a very reasonable rate. Sleeping facilities are 2 double bunk beds with mattresses in a single room.
