More than a century of continuous conservation has ensured that wildlife flourishes in Etosha National Park, much the same as it has over the past millennia. This unspoiled, well-loved park’s striking feature is an immense seasonal salt pan of more than 1,900 square miles set in almost 8,500 square miles of gracious African savannah and dry woodland. This is home to more than 110 species of mammals, reptiles galore, and almost 400 species of birds.  Etosha National Park offers one of Africa’s greatest and most accessible safari experiences.

Highlights:

  • The heart-stopping roaring of lions and eerie call and response of jackals in an authentic and beautiful African wilderness; as well as special sightings of desert-adapted antelopes such as gemsbok and the endemic black-faced impala
  • Big-game viewing of lion, leopard, hyena, cheetah, elephant, giraffe, black and white rhino, as well as the many smaller and fascinating species
  • Incredible concentrations of graceful plains animals congregating at the waterholes alongside Etosha Pan including zebra, wildebeest and springbok

Day 2: ETOSHA NATIONAL PARK

The morning will be spent in the Etosha National Park, exploring the waterholes along this enormous saltpan in your closed touring vehicle. Return to the lodge for lunch (on own account). There will be another opportunity in the afternoon for a game drive (in the closed touring vehicle) in the Etosha National park. There are close to 114 species of mammal in Etosha, including the black faced impala and the threatened black and white rhino. The Etosha Pan (a flat caliche depression) contains water only after very good rains and sometimes only for a few days each year, but is enough to stimulate the growth of a blue green algae which lures thousands of flamingos.
