Etosha National Park is Namibia’s premier game viewing area, it is a vast wilderness that, while arid, supports the greatest variety and density of wildlife in the country. The park is know for its remarkably easy access and as part of a greater self driving circuit of Namibia. The two main ways to experience Etosha’s wildlife are either by self driving and staying at one of the campsites or lodges within the National Park or to stay at one of the more authentic private reserves that border the park.For the adventurous a combination of camping and a nice private camp is a fun way to experience this unique location.
Etosha is very different to everywhere else that we visit, even in the way that the game viewing is conducted, the best way to see wildlife in Etosha is to visit during the dry season and to stay close to the watering holes on which the wildlife rely.
Etosha National Park spans an area of 22,270 square kilometres (8,600 sq mi) and gets its name from the large Etosha pan which is almost entirely within the park. The Etosha pan (4,760 square kilometres (1,840 sq mi)) covers 23% of the area of the total area of the Etosha National Park. The park is home to hundreds of species of mammals, birds and reptiles, including several threatened and endangered species such as the black rhinoceros.
