ETOSHA NATIONAL PARK
TRAVEL TO ETOSHA NATIONAL PARK
Etosha National Park is one of Africa’s finest game reserves for safari and was claimed Namibia’s first conservation area in 1907. Its eastern territory is dominated by a vast, shallow pan of silvery sand while the rest of the park is covered with sparse shrubs, grassy plains and mopane trees.
During the dry season, from May to October, thousands of animals converge to drink at the waterholes – elephant, giraffe, rhino and lion, occasionally leopard, cheetah and various types of antelope. This is the best time to view wildlife. For the greater part of the year, the pan is a bleak expanse of white cracked mud which shimmers with mirages created by heat.
In November, dramatic thunderstorms light up the heavens, followed by heavy rain, causing a dramatic change from the bleak landscape to a vast expanse of water, which attracts large colonies of birds, including the greater white pelican and hordes of pink and orange flamingos, flaming the waters with their colour and creating a unique and unforgettable sight.
BEST TIMES TO GO
May to October: Winter months bring cooler weather ideal for exploring the coast, inland and going on safari further north in Etosha National Park.
