Etosha National Park
Spanning over 20,000 square kilometres, the Etosha National Park is one of the largest and most fascinating wildlife sanctuaries in Africa. With its dry arid landscape consisting of mainly salt pans, yet offers sweet waterholes that congregates wildlife and those who can thrive here can count themselves to be in the league of the desert-adapted. Rich in minerals, this is also home to a large variety of migratory birds such as the impressive flock of flamingos as well as reptiles in perhaps Namibia's greatest gladiatorial venue.
Why Etosha National Park?
Etosha National Park is home to a dense population of 4 of the Big 5 - elephant, lion, leopard and a healthy population of black rhinos, the undoubted stars of Etosha. This archaic beast is endangered and the waterholes are probably among the best places in the world to see this precious animal. Other mammals thriving are the likes of giraffe, wildebeest, cheetah, hyena, mountain and plain zebras, springbok, kudu, gemsbok as well as a large number of smaller mammals.
