Days 6 - 7: Etosha N.P.

Established in 1907, Etosha was Namibia’s first conservation area and it’s one of the world’s finest game parks, home to many rare and endangered species. The Etosha Pan dominates the park which is usually dry, but fills with water briefly in the summer months, attracting pelicans and flamingos in particular. Periannual springs attract a variety of game and birds throughout the year, including the endangered black rhino and the endemic black face impala. A San 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.

In the evening the floodlit waterholes are always teeming with the park's diverse inhabitants from rhino and elephant to giraffe, oryx, springbok, warthog and zebra. You may even be lucky enough to catch sight of lions who sometimes come down to the waterholes to drink. Overnight - Etosha N.P. (B:2, L:2, D:2)
