Etosha Game Park, Namibia

Day 6124 January, 2020 in Namibia ⋅ ⛅ 34 °C

The park’s main characteristic is a salt pan so large it can be seen from space and is the most distinctive feature of the park. It is believed that it was formed over 100 million years ago and is 130 km long and up to 50 km wide in certain places. This means that the pan covers almost a quarter of the entire park!

Yet there is abundant wildlife that congregates around the waterholes, giving you almost guaranteed game sightings. At the same time Etosha National Park is one of the most accessible game reserves in Namibia and Southern Africa. We stayed in a campsite in the park.

The area is home to hundreds of species of mammals, birds and reptiles, including several threatened and endangered species such as the black rhinoceros.
