Perfect!

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,...

We had a magnificent experience by visiting Etosha. In this national park the animals have an enormous space to develop their sort. As a visitor you only can take one road and you have to let the animals to enjoy their privacy. But with all the waterholes nicely divided along the road you are able to spot them and see... More

As a SA I had the privilege to live in Namibia. One of the highlights during the time i lived in Namibia is the visit to Etosha Game Park. What an amasingly beautiful part of Africa. Our first sighting was a lion and his partner. For the first time in my life i could really observe this majestically beautiful King... More

First of all I would like to admit we made a mistake: we stayed overnight outside the park and that precludes you from being inside at dusk and dawn, right when the big animals feed and drink. Secondly in the inside camps you have the opportunity ti hire the tour guide and being their specific job and having experience and... More

We visited Etosha December/ January and I had the best game viewing experience in Etosha so far. Elephant, Rhino, Lion, Hyena, and an abundance of zebra, wildebeest, hartebeest, springbok, .... It was still very hot and very dry, so the few waterholes that still had water were fantastic spots to view the coming-and-going of the thirsty wild-life.

Stay at the Halali accomodations and visit the waterhole around 6pm. High chance of spotting a rhino up close. The Okaukuejo accommodation waterhole also provides great vantage point for lions and elephants in the mornings and evenings. Could probably give the evening safari rides a miss as the 3 hrs felt a little too long without a toilet break! Food... More
