Etosha Nationalpark
Namibia’s most important National Park
Game drives to busy waterholes
Salt pan at the park’s centre
The 22’000 km² Etosha National Park is the most important national park in Namibia. It is situated some 400 km north of the capital Windhoek, and includes the 5’000 km² Etosha Salt Pan, the relic of a former inland lake. The region’s waterholes attract an abundance of wildlife during the dry season.
A visit to Etosha National Park requires careful planning in order to avoid disappointment. The park relies entirely on its artificial waterholes, which attract high concentrations of wildlife during the dry season. The animals leave the waterholes again when the wet season arrives, making them much more difficult to find. Etosha Pan itself can be under 10 cm of water, making it more attractive to bird lovers.

Accommodation also needs to be selected carefully. The park is home to several state camps, which are usually and unfortunately not very well managed. Good accommodation can be found outside the park in private reserves, such as the Mushara and Onguma camps in the east, and more particularly, in the Ongava Private Reserve at Anderson's Gate in the south, which supports more game than the others.
