This is the second time we visited Etosha and it didn't fail to impress. There is a large variety in vegetation from the greener more lush areas towards the west, to the vast open salt pan to the expansive plains. As with visiting any national park, there are lots of "regulars" as we like to call them: springbok, black faced... More

This huge park offers lots of animals. Out of the Big 5 only the buffalo are not in this park. We have mostly seen Zebras and Giraffes, but also had stunning Elephant encounters and saw white Rhinos. We spend 2,5 days in the park, but you can easily spend more time and absolutely enjoy it. The only negative point is... More

You must absolutely visit this park. Not only is it a massive game park with everything you can imagine, the scenery is also beautiful. If you are in Namibia, do not miss out on Etosha. you can spend hours staring at elephants bathing or hyenas being jerks to other animals. Its a good time

I was really excited about going there. Many good reviews and as it was dry a good time for going there. We started at Okaukuejo and moved up to Namutoni. If I'd ever go there again, which I definitely won't, I'd go just to Namutoni. The landscape there is much nicer than around Okaukuejo and you can see more animals.... More

What a fantastic park. Oodles of animals and an awesome landscape. Game viewing is brilliant. Traffic and the camp situation is pretty ordinary though. Kind of feels like people are on top of you if camping at public sites. At least you can escape the crowds during game drives by going a little further afield. Give yourself at least three... More

We have been to Kruger Nationalpark two weeks before going to Etosha and we have been that lucky there that we did not have to see too many animals in Etosha anymore. But we saw them anyway. Herds of zebras, impalas, wildebeest, elephants, springbock etc. 5 lions two meters next to the street were also a highlight. But what I... More
