Experience a Wild and Luxurious African Safari
Etosha National Park is regarded as the greatest wildlife sanctuary in Namibia. The park’s main feature is a salt pan, the Etosha Pan, which is so large it can be seen from space. This huge salt pan is surrounded by grassy plains that after heavy rains becomes a lake and attracts large flocks of flamingos, colouring the landscape candy-floss pink.
When dry, the wildlife that roam this stark landscape have adapted to its arid conditions and they all rely on numerous waterholes that are dotted throughout the reserve, some man-made and some natural. The park boasts the largest population of black rhino in the world and is home to 4 of the Big 5 species, with only the exclusion of buffalo. The park is also famously home of some rare and unusual wildlife species including the black-faced impala, Hartmann’s mountain zebra and the smallest antelope in the world, the Damara dik-dik.
Etosha National Park has a selection of lodges that have waterholes, which are floodlit at night, to get the best sightings of black rhino, lion, elephant and the evasive leopard. This area is a wildlife photographer’s dream and a safari enthusiast’s delight.
Walking safaris are popular in Etosha and are a humbling and awe-inspiring experience. The slow pace of the walk and the knowledgeable insights of trained guides, opens your eyes to a fascinating part of the world, where nature reigns supreme.
