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

There is a lot of luck involved in what you see on a game drive in sun a massive park but we felt very lucky just to be there. An amazing experience! We did one organised game drive and one self drive. We would have loved more time there!! Obviously you can't get out of your car so don't drink... More

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...

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...
