Etosha National Park: Namibia's crown


If you are planning a safari trip to Southern Africa be sure to consider Etosha National Park, Namibia's great wildlife sanctuary, with its unique animal and bird life, and beautiful rest camps and luxury lodges. 

Etosha National Park is a national park in northwestern Namibia, located in the Kunene region, and shares boundaries with the regions of Oshana, Oshikoto and Otjozondjupa. The park spans an area of 22,270 square kilometres and is named after the Etosha pan which is almost entirely within the park, this salt pan is so large it can be seen from space. 

The Etosha pan (4,760 square kilometres) covers 23% of the area of the total area of the Etosha National Park. The park is home to hundreds of species of wildlife, mammals, birds and reptiles, including several threatened and endangered species such as the black rhinoceros, that congregate around the waterholes. 

Visit the park's website for more information and to reserve a booking: etoshanationalpark.org
