This was our first visit to Etosha, which was highly anticipated. Unfortunately we were DISSAPOINTED on almost all fronts. The reception staff were unfriendly. Arriving at the campsites we were shocked to see the many tour operators and the close proximity of the sites to one another. Each site has electricity and a tap with running water. The sites are...

Got to Etosha early at 07.45 Came in through Andersson's Gate. Reception staff not very friendly, infact quite rude, was told we could not check in until after 10 o'clock (we were camping) Drove to the west side of the park, and at the second or third watering hole saw the most amazing sight as many different species of animals...

A savannah and semi desert landscape. It is the best place in Africa to find the endangered Black Rhino and cheetah. I saw both in one day drive along with two lion prides and a lot of game. You can call this enough...

Had an amazing experience for 3 days as we drove through the park. Easy to get around on own. Helpful staff at the camps....ask them for recent sightings. Just sit back and watch nature at its best

I have travelled all over the world and in particular across the African continent and this place was awful. We went here last year and I was disgusted by what we found. Etosha was overpriced and not worth the trip. We felt sorry for people who may have booked this place for a honeymoon or romantic get-away because this place... More

Absolutely wonderful! We saw so many animals. Just the biggest privilege to see them in their own environment, as they should be. A must for all animal lovers.

We entered with our rented VW Polo from Anderson gate and already on the nicely paved road to Okaukuejo we saw many animals including ostriches and a herd of giraffes crossing the road just in front of us. From Okaukuejo west to Leeubron the road was bumpy but doable. There we saw so many beautiful animals, some of them just... More

We visited in March 2015. There had been quite a lot of rain, although it seems to not have covered the park evenly. However this did have the effect of meaning there was little game at the waterholes. My companions did not rise early, and were very keen on sundowners, so our idea of staying inside the park was probably... More

We have visited Etosha before, about five years ago, but this year we entered the Park by the Galton Gate so that we could stay overnight at Dolomite Camp. Very much in the wilderness of Etosha, however we had great sightings on our way. Safely installed in our upmarket 'chalet', we spent time on our terrace watching giraffe, impala, springbok,...
