Etosha National Park

Etosha National Park is located in the north western Namibia in the Kunene region covering more than 20,000 sq. km, the park is one of the world’s great wildlife-viewing venues due to the vast wildlife found in this park, while other parks are stressful to see the games, it’s not the case with this park where animals are the order of the day as from the time a visitor enters the park up to when he/she leaves only watch animals.

This is one of the best activities which attracts tourist to this park in this country and one of the experience guide in this park urges visitor to just have a visit to the water hole within the park as hundreds of animals converge around to take water due to the heat around the areas since it is somehow a desert. Lions, elephants, springboks, gemsboks, Angolan giraffe, Black backed jackal, South African Wild cat, Cape Fox, Banded Mongoose, Warthogs and the blue wildebeest among others come in hundreds.

Birders enjoy a vast free exposure to the different bird species from the park which includes, Lappet-faced vulture, white backed vulture, martial eagles, tawny eagle, Blue crane, pied crow, Cape crow, Greater flamingo, Secretary bird, Red-billed teal, Sand grouse, Egyptian goose, Emerald spotted Wood dove, Giant eagle owl, Purple rollers, Cape sparrow, Laughing Dove, Pygmy falcon, Grey heron and the Cattle egrets.

Etosha is home to four of the big five which are elephant, rhino, leopard, and lion as well as a vast quantity of game and bird life. Morning and afternoon game drives can be done on a daily basis and this can be arranged with Nature Adventure Africa Safari Limited

Another interesting place that can’t be left visited from the park is the Etosha Pan which is almost 4,800km²; this is about a quarter of the amazing Etosha national park. At 130 km’s long and up to 50km’s wide in places. It is considered to be the largest salt pan in Africa and is the park’s most unique spot which is visible even from space. The pan was originally a lake but over time the earth movements that took place forced the rivers that once fed the lake to change course and flow into the Atlantic Ocean.

Okaukuejo Wildlife Resort, Dolomite Camp, Namutoni Camp, Onkoshi Camp is some of the place where visitors can sleep.
