Located in northern Namibia Etosha National Park is dominated by a huge, dried out salt pan surrounded by grassland and woodland and has Namibia’s best game viewing. This popular park is well set up for tourists and has a number of rest camps with floodlit waterholes, accommodation, shops and swimming pools and is a great park for self drivers to explore, moving between the numerous waterholes on the edges of the pan that attract all manner of game including elephants and giraffe as well as zebra, oryx and wildebeest and large herds of springbok. Black rhino may also be found and lion, cheetah and leopard are also present, although the latter is very elusive.
There are a number of lodges located just outside the park gates offering a choice of accommodation from chalets and tents to luxury villas. Guests can take game drives with expert guides inside the park and additional activities such as night drives and walks are possible on some of the adjacent private reserves.
