Lots of options for viewing you can drive around all day or just sit at the water holes and the animals will come to you. We stayed at NWR camp inside... More

The camping sites could do with some improvement, including the curios shop and the market. The park covers a vast surface area but most of the animals are usually seen near the waterholes. So generally it might be best to just stay situated at a waterhole for a period of time. Lots of areas where there is literally nothing to... More

We thoroughly enjoyed our visit to etosha np. The wildlife viewing was spectacular. The hide at olfantrus was spectacular, along with the campsite (as no lodges or restaurants here). Many of the waterholes are man made, and in a country that is so dry and has experienced years of drought, it does assure a water supply for the animals and... More

I have always wanted to go to Etosha, yes the wildlife was awesome, the scenery spectacular and this all lived up to my expectations, and I would urge anyone to go, now now because unless it gets some TLC you will be disappointed as I was, speeding game scouts, inconsiderate game drive vehicles, and belligerent staff, run down facilities, animals...

Arrived at the park in time for an afternoon game drive with our tour group Intrepid, seeing more animals than we have seen since in Africa. There were elephants, giraffes, rino's Zebra and many springbok. We were even lucky enough to see a couple of male lions having an afternoon siesta. The following morning we also went for a early...

Etosha is a must-visit park in Northern Namibia. It is larger than Serengeti, with a different landscape, less game, and clearly designed for closer contact with animals. We prefer the wilder Serengeti, but that said, Etosha has a uniqueness that is unparalled. Because there are numerous water holes - both natural and man-made - situated around the park, especially in... More

Etosha is simply a fantastic place and a dreamworld for any photographer at any level. The wildlife is spectacular with one of Africa's highest populations of both black and white rhino. The white soil/sand and open landscapes are just excellent for wildlife photography. Waterholes are plenty and some will give you great shots of the "ghost elephants". Being completely white...

I have been all over southern Africa, and Etosha is definitely my favorite game park. Due to the dry conditions of the land (salt pans and desert savannah), the animals here must survive a much harsher environment than those in a more lush environment, like Chobe for example. It amazes me how resilient some of them can be. Since most... More
