Etosha National Park

Etosha National Park, considered one of southern Africa’s finest wildlife parks, is Namibia’s prime wilderness conservation area. Spanning a vast 22 300 km² (8 610 square miles), the Park consists of a mosaic of vegetation types that surround a huge salt pan, which becomes a lovely lake after heavy rains. Etosha, meaning “Great White Place”, hosts a vast array of wildlife, including four of the Big Five, as well as giraffes and rare species such as the black-faced impala, Hartmann’s Mountain zebra or the dimunutive Damara dik-dik.

Highlights:

  • Temporary water in the Etosha pan attracts huge flocks of flamingos
  • Annual migration of wildebeest, zebra, springbok and oryx
  • Frequent sightings of leopard
  • Floodlit waterholes
  • Excellent game viewing
