ETOSHA NATIONAL PARK

Area Overview

Etosha National Park is home to four of the Big 5. Elephants and lions are common in the park, while the elusive leopard hides in the densely vegetated areas. However, one of the best reasons to visit Etosha is its healthy population of black rhinoceros. This archaic beast is endangered and the waterholes are probably among the best places in the world to see this precious animal.

Believed to have originated over 12 million years ago as a shallow lake, Etosha National Park is said to have the tallest Elephants in Africa, (up to 12 feet the shoulder), Etosha is recognized as being one of the last wild sanctuaries of the endangered Black Rhino.

Home to 114 mammal species, 340 bird species, 110 reptile species, 16 amphibian species and, surprisingly, one species of fish. Largely flat with vast grasslands surrounding its famous Etosha Pan. The bush is scanty and the animals that call this area home have adapted to these arid conditions. Most of the year, they have to rely on the numerous waterholes (some natural, some man-made) that are dotted throughout this vast reserve.

Twice daily game drives!

The park is home to 114 species of mammals! The large mammals  include elephant, giraffe, lion, leopard, rhino, wildebeest, hyena, springbok, cheetah, mountain and plains zebra, kudu, gemsbok and eland. Among the smaller species you will find warthog, jackal, bat-eared fox, honey badger and ground squirrels.

Safari days!

Each day on safari in Africa is a magical experience, whether you’re exploring the savanna on foot or in a 4x4 vehicle in search of the Big 5 or taking to the sky in a hot-air balloon to witness the Great Wildebeest Migration. Every single day is steeped in the promise of a unique adventure and cherished memories.

Although each day is unpredictable to a certain extent, based on the time of year or location, there is a general format or schedule that safaris tend to follow, but, as a rule, safaris do follow a familiar rhythm that combines thrilling game viewing with ample time to relax in between—a dream vacation in anyone’s book. One rule of thumb is that there are usually two game drives a day: one in the early morning and one in the late afternoon, when animals are at their most active.

ETOSHA NATIONAL PARK

Area Overview

Etosha National Park is undoubtedly the feather in Namibia’s safari cap. It’s a unique and dramatic destination that may spoil you for life with its fascinating smorgasbord of wildlife – and its unique way of viewing them. The game viewing in Etosha National Park is excellent! A series of waterholes along the southern edge of the pan guarantee rewarding and often spectacular viewing! Home to 114 mammal species, 340 bird species, 110 reptile species, 16 amphibian species and, surprisingly, one species of fish.

Dominated by the pancake-flat Etosha Pan, a 5 000km² seasonally flooded depression, Etosha National Park is an area of open, grassy woodland and thick scrub, studded with waterholes. Yet despite its arid appearance, the park is packed with an eclectic mix of familiar faces such as elephant, giraffe, lion, leopard and zebra as well as the desert specialists like springbok and  gemsbok.

Believed to have originated over 12 million years ago as a shallow lake, Etosha National Park is said to have the tallest Elephants in Africa, (up to 12 feet the shoulder), Etosha is recognized as being one of the last wild sanctuaries of the endangered Black Rhino.

A San (Bushman) legend about the formation of the Etosha Pan tells of how a village was raided and everyone but the women slaughtered. One woman was so upset about the death of her family she cried until her tears formed a massive lake. When the lake dried up nothing was left apart from a huge white pan.

Twice daily game drives!

Morning and evening game drives through the park are a veritable feast for the senses, encompassing unbelievable scenery, fresh breezes that caress your face as the open-sided 4×4 ambles along, natural dusky perfumes that permeate the air and a veritable orchestra of African sounds.

Game drives are led by experienced and trained guides who tailor excursions to suit the preferences of every guest, whether it’s to view a certain animal, learn about the mannerisms of different species and their habitats or simply to enjoy the vast expanse of the pans and the panoramic surroundings.

Guides are always eager and willing to impart their vast knowledge and expertise to interested travelers.
