We visited in a safari drive and went to several waterholes. We had good luck: we saw many animals and a pair of lions mating near a water hole. That keep the other animals away, but we saw them at other water holes! Park was quite dusty as rains won't start for 6 weeks. Also went to view the Etosha... More

Amazing national park with animals everywhere. You can see the big five. Prices in the shops are a little high.

Etosha Pan was on my bucket list and it did not disappoint. The waterhole chalets were really fab, staff were great, we took the DBB option and the food was fine. Best experience was 9 black rhinos at the waterhole one evening and 32 elephants arriving to drink.

Great place where to see many animals of different species, especially around a waterhole where they come to drink. Don't be hasty, they will arrive. The best experiences were: the arrival of several giraffes at the waterhole during the day and the that of a family of black rhinos (male, female and juvenile) in the evening. Zebras, elephants and antelopes... More

We went last August to Etosha National Park, spent 2 days there and were amazed by the number of antelopes, zebras, and all sorts of animals we could spot at the waterholes. Harder to see the big cats though, but a wonderful stay!

If you go to Namibia, you MUST go to Etosha National Park, full stop. I visited in August, well into the dry season, so the waterholes were very active throughout the day. Of course, you have to stay on the roads, so wildlife sightings are limited to what you come across. Fortunately, much of the eastern and central areas are... More

Stayed in Etosha for 2 nights in July. Did 2 long game drives throughout the park. Stunning. Lots of wildlife to be seen. Saw so many animals. Felt like we were in a National Geographic special! I totally recommend the park. Roads well maintained and well signed.

After visiting Botswana the last 2 years, with less tourists, no big tourist buses and trucks roaming through the national parks, Etosha and Namibia overall left the impresson of a place of mass tourism, noisy and crowded, where the intimate experience of being in nature among the stunning wildlife was just not possible. We stayed 10 nights in Etosha, 6... More
