Etosha is home to one of Namibia’s most iconic attractions – and with good reason. It offers some of the best safari territory in the country, from the iconic Etosha National Park that lies centred in the land to a variety of private game reserves on its outskirts. Both the park and surrounding reserves and concessions offer wildlife experiences that are as rewarding as they are memorable.
Etosha translates to “place of dry water” and is undeniably one of southern Africa’s best loved and most easily accessible wildlife sanctuaries. Spanning 22 270km², it is also one of the world’s largest national parks with more than 114 mammal species and some 340 bird species to be seen. Visitors can stay in any of the parks lodges, camps and campsites. The neighbouring Ongava Game Reserve is also home to opulent accommodation options promising a decadent safari experience.
