Etosha National Park

Etosha National Park

Etosha National Park is unique in Africa. The park’s main characteristic is a salt pan so large it can be seen from space. Yet there is abundant wildlife that congregates around the waterholes, giving you almost guaranteed game sightings. At the same time Etosha National Park is one of the most accessible game reserves in Namibia and Southern Africa.

The park is malaria free, accessible in a regular sedan car and the rest camps provide a range of accommodation as well as restaurants, viewing decks, shops and petrol stations. Luxurious camps in Etosha’s remote areas have now added top end accommodation to the park’s offerings.

Since Etosha National Park is the gateway to Northern Namibia and Ovamboland, it’s a very popular stop on any Namibian tour. Above all, it is known as Namibia’s foremost wildlife sanctuary.

The landscape is unique and varied and subsequently home to a wide variety of animals. For example lion, elephant, leopard, giraffe, cheetah, hyena, springbok, two kinds of zebra, eland and many more species of wildlife are found here.

What makes this park unique is the floodlit waterholes at all the main camps. In addition some of the camps even have photography hides near the waterholes. Of course, Etosha National Park is any photographer or nature lover’s dream. Moreover, most of the lodges have private decks or verandas to observe the pristine landscape.

In addition to providing up-to-date information about Etosha, we can help you book your ideal accommodation and safari package. Visit Etosha National Park in Namibia this season so you can share in this amazing experience of Namibia’s wildlife.


The Unique Experience

At sunrise the gates open to the ‘Great White Place’ or ‘Place of Dry Water’, as the Owambo people have called the heart of the country since time immemorial. Unlike its name, however, the 22 912-square-kilometre national park is a place of sanctuary and abundance.

In addition with a variety of vegetation types, from thorn bush and woodland savannah, stands of makalani palms and the ‘phantom’ moringa trees (sprokiesbome) to the chalky white pan, Etosha National Park is home to myriad species of wildlife. One-hundred-and-fourteen mammal species are found in the park including the antisocial black rhino and the endemic black-faced impala.

Waterholes are dotted along the southern section of the pan providing effortless viewing. While unequalled Earthly experiences can be garnered here: watching a family of elephants silently appear and hurry excitedly towards the water, lions lazing contentedly in the shade of a bush, elegant giraffe loping across the road and a herd of handsome zebra nuzzling each other affectionately.


Etosha National Park offers a wide selection of Accommodation and Camps. This accommodation varies from bush chalets, family chalets, premier accommodation and campsites. In addition the park has six main camps. We explain more about what guests can experience at the wide variety of accommodation options.

The six Etosha camps are all run and managed by Namibian Wildlife Resorts, which is a government incentive for wildlife resorts in Namibia. The properties are all located near the main roads through the park.

It’s a good idea to plan your route during your visit. You can also incorporate private lodges near Etosha National Park on the game reserves nearby. We can help you plan an exciting adventure through Namibia.
