Etosha National Park is one of Namibia's most spectacular parks. This huge wildlife sanctuary of over 27,000 square kilometers has had a protected status for over a hundred years. Etosha is unique as a wildlife park even for seasoned wildlife viewers. Visitors can drive to waterholes and across open spaces at one’s own pace using one’s own vehicle for a more intimate experience with nature.
Etosha national park’s main attraction is the very large salt pan which is even visible from space. Along with this, there is abundant wildlife that congregates around waterholes, giving visitors almost guaranteed game sightings. Etosha National Park remains one of Africa’s most accessible game reserves.
Layout of Etosha National Park:-The Park has an area of nearly 22,912 Sq km which is fully fenced to prevent poaching. At the eastern part of the park is the large 5000 Sq km Salt pan which is about Two million years old and was formed when the Kunene Delta dried up and its riverbed shifted.
The Etosha National Park is home to more than 340 species of birds of which 46 of them are raptors. During Summer (November to April) visitors can easily spot birds of different species with myriad colors and brightness including eagles and vultures.
The Etosha Salt Pan is a huge expanse of land covering around 25% of the Park. The Salt pan attracts different species of wildlife who use the mineral rich salts while taking advantage of any remaining water pools.
The Etosha Safari Camp is located Nine Km south of Andersson Gate entrance to the National Park. This Safari camp has 50 chalets, a swimming pool, the Okambashu Restaurant and the Oshebeena Bar, styled like a typical little township bar.
