The Etosha National Park is a wildlife sactuary, with over 340 species of birds and 114 animal species. Situated in the north-west of Namibia, the park’s main feature is an immense 5000 km² endorheic pan, spanning through almost the entire park. This ‘great white place’ sets a silver-white stage for playful mirages and animals of different colours and sizes seeking water amidst the savannah grassland and thorn shrub. You may see zebra, springbok, lion, elephant, antelope and even the endangered black rhino and black-faced impala, quench their thirst at surrounding natural springs. And if you are lucky, you could see a lion, cheetah or leopard hunt down its prey. What makes Etosha National Park even more special is the location of its camps; constructed near the edge of water holes, you can enjoy this wildlife spectacle, while enjoying your sun-downer with friends. There are also various private game reserves bordering the Park, with a variety of night game drive, bush walks and other activities available.

WHEN TO GO?

In the rainy season (November to April) the dry Etosha pan floods and this can be a great time of year to visit for birding enthusiasts, however be aware of higher risk of malaria. The drier months of May to October are considered the best for game viewing in Namibia, especially at Etosha, as the animals congregate at the waterholes, however temperatures can get very cold at night in June and July (September and October can be very hot).

TOP ACTIVITIES

Together with exploring one of Namibia’s finest safari destinations, fishermen will also find exciting angling opportunities with over 70 species of fish. The bird viewing is some of the best in Africa in this wetland paradise. Or kick back and enjoy a boat cruise, sipping sun-downers in the heart of wild Africa.

 

WHERE NEXT?

Many combine a trip to Etosha with a visit to the dunes at Sossusvlei or the Fish River Canyon, often flying from Cape Town or Johannesburg. Windhoek is well connected with regional flights and direct connections to most major hubs.
