It is just unimaginable that this vast, arid National Park could sustain life. In fact, it would not if the Government does not pump water to the Park in certain places. And yet, we had such an experience here. We saw the Big four, Lions, Rhinoceri,Elephants and the elusive leopard (two of them!!). We did not see the buffalo as... More

Absolutely magnificent! This humongous national park will give you the chance to watch a lot of wild animals in their natural environment and you will not even need a binocular! The waterholes are the perfect places where to meet Jackals, Ostriches, Kudus, Zebras, Blue Wildebeests, Elephants just a few yards away. The eastern part seems to be the most populated.... More

Since it was a dry for a while the waterholes were well frequented by animals. So we were lucky and saw many, many animals - even a joung leopard on the hunt. You are restricted to the given roads - which is a good thing for the nature but you may end up not seeing as much animals. But the... More

Great place for seeing wildlife without loads of safari vehicles crowding round the same poor animal. Saw Rhino, Giraffe, Elephant, many species of bird, lots of game.

We visited Etosha at the end of the dry season, september 2014. Loads of animals close to the waterholes. Herds of Elephants crossing the desert in search of precious water (one herd had 44 elephants, another had 35 elephants) Loads of black and white rhino's, lions, we even spotted a Leopard. I can recommend to visit etosha at the end... More

Large herds of animals - mainly zebra, springbok, blouwildebeest, kudu and giraffe - personally I prefer quality sightings and experiences rather than quantity - therefore my vote for a safari experience will definately go to one of the RSA private parks - i.e. Sabi Sand, Londolozi etc. The other point is that the waterhole set-up seems artificial - although the...
