About Etosha National Park

The Etosha Pan, located within the Etosha National Park is one of the finest examples of a salt pan in the world. Stretching out over 120km, the dried up lake glistens white in the sun because of the salty mineral deposit spread across its surface. During exceptionally heavy rains the pan may well acquire a thin layer of water, but otherwise the area remains bone dry. However, while the saline flat has a smattering of water, it becomes a mecca for hundreds of flamingos and pelicans who flock to it as one of the few sources of hydration in the area. This certainly makes for some spectacular viewing.

The park has been designed in such a way so as to cater for self-guided game tours. Visitors to the area can grab themselves a vehicle and, following the clear sign posts that are dotted around the park, head out in search of exotic creatures. Elephants, giraffes, springboks and impalas are among some of the usual suspects that can be spotted in the Etosha National Park. The black rhino has also been known to make to the odd appearance, although they are becoming increasingly more rare.

Seeing the wildlife of the Etosha National Park is much easier than in most other reserves in other parts of Africa. Rather than driving around for, potentially, days on end, in this park you can simply drive over to one of the waterholes, park your vehicle and wait. Needless to say you won't be there long before you'll be whipping out the camera in order to capture some incredible snapshots as various animals flock en masse for a drink. In the meantime, be sure to admire the diverse landscape, presided over by mopane.
