One of Africa’s greatest National Parks

Views: 173 Visited: Jan 2019 Reviewed: Mar 30, 2019

One of Nature Travel Namibia’s guides who loves exploring the Etosha National Park writes the following review about this spectacular Namibian National Park:

"In my opinion, Etosha is one of Africa’s greatest National Parks. It covers more than 20,000 km2, is one of the world's great wildlife-viewing venues. The Etosha Pan, meaning “ The Great White Place”, is believed to be formed over 100 million years ago and it is 130km’s long and up t... read more

Lots and lots of animals

Views: 183 Visited: Apr 2012 Reviewed: Mar 22, 2019

I visited Etosha a few years ago and it was totally memorable. The park is very flat and you can see animals for miles, most were around the huge salt pan inside the park which is incredible to see. We stayed in a tented camp just outside the park close to the Anderson Gate. We spent a few days driving around the park and there was never any time that we did not see animals, big or small, especially lots and lots of field game. My favourite an... read more

Etosha National Park Namibia – a Wildlife Photographer’s Paradise

Views: 264 Visited: Nov 2019 Reviewed: Mar 08, 2019

I’m often asked why Etosha holds such a special place in my heart?

I could say that it is the chance to view vast numbers of wildlife species drinking together, the stark arid landscape or the camps’ floodlit waterholes that put on nightly spectacles, but really I think it is the countless photo opportunities.

There is nowhere quite like Etosha for imagery. I’m not sure whether it’s the light or the dust or a combination of both, but th... read more

Wildlife & landscapes

Views: 542 Visited: Jun 2015 Reviewed: Mar 09, 2016

If we had to explain Namibia in a few words, it would be a photographer's dream. On a recent trip to Sossusvlei, Damarland and Etosha National Park we were left dumbfounded once again by this country's amazing natural beauty.

Etosha National Park, specifically, has some amazing lodges with spotlit waterholes where you can spend your day, and night, watching animals in their natural environment.

A visit to Etosha National park in Namibia

Views: 606 Visited: May 2015 Reviewed: Jun 05, 2015

The Etosha National park is one of the biggest wildlife resorts in Namibia and it provides accommodation, camping, sleeping under the stars. The waterholes is something you don't see every day. I will recommend this trip to any tourist who wants to go on a journey of a lifetime.

'Touching' the wildlife!

Views: 743 Visited: Jul 2014 Reviewed: Jul 15, 2014

Etosha National Park offers unequal wildlife sightings and it's a definite 'must-see' for visitors to Namibia! During my journeys through the park I experienced very close, yet undisturbed encounters with animals: a female leopard with two small cubs sunbathing in the middle of the main road in the early morning sun (caution to all who exceed speed limits in the park!), springbok giving birth next to pride of lions, over 60 elephants crossing ... read more

Amazing safari in Namibia

Views: 626 Visited: Feb 2004 Reviewed: Jun 02, 2014

This was our first safari and visit to Namibia, we drove throughout the country and had no idea how to visit the game park, we simply rented a saloon car which I will not recommend, of course! We felt very small...the wildlife was amazing and we saw a great variety of game including lions. Safaris in Namibia are unlike other places. Etosha is huge and not crowded, you feel the wildlife environment. I will always remember the stunning landscape... read more

Exit from the dunes

Views: 659 Visited: Dec 2008 Reviewed: Apr 12, 2014

My camping in Etosha was set up at Halali near waterhole and we spent most of the days traversing through the park from view point to view point, which was great! Although our group was travelling during rainy season I enjoyed viewing abundant wildlife everywhere! I also enjoyed coast and dunes, especially sandboarding in the dunes, even at my age as I'm considered a senior. Food served on tour was excellent, I especially appreciate quick, eff... read more

Heart-stopping Namibian Safari

Views: 664 Visited: Oct 2011 Reviewed: Feb 07, 2014

Namibia is a country full of contrasts and contradictory landscapes. From the million year old sands of Namib-Naukluft National Park to the lushness of the Waterberg Plateau, the diversity is breathtaking. After the desolation of sand dunes, Etosha in October was delightfully teeming with antelope of all varieties. The best part, most herds had healthy contingent of babies in their midst. Most notable was the unusually high concentration of Ha... read more

Great wildlife, good roads, but…

Views: 835 Visited: Jul 2011 Reviewed: Jan 12, 2014

No trip to Namibia is complete without a visit to the Etosha National Park. This huge game reserve in the north of the country is a must for wildlife lovers as it is not only possible to see the Big Five but game is plentiful and visitors are guaranteed good animal sightings.

Park facilities are good, roads are maintained and the accommodation is clean and perfectly adequate although not exactly luxurious. Visitors who like rose petals in t... read more

Land of Shimmering Images

Views: 791 Visited: Jan 2001 Reviewed: Nov 19, 2013

There is something about Etosha that inspires descriptive text; shimmering mirages over salt pans, herds of springbok daintily tip toeing through the grass, herds of wildebeest dotted on an endless horizon all blended with an air of expectancy. You never know what you’re going to see or experience in Etosha.

I remember the first time I visited Etosha, which was over a decade ago, and I was blown away by the scenery. It was in January and I’... read more

Who likes chips?

Views: 919 Visited: Jul 2011 Reviewed: Jun 14, 2013

Children will have a lot to eat when they order Chips (French Fries). Very often they are made too oily and it´s nearly impossible to eat them all.

But you will find enough animals here wanting to be fed:
Banded Mongooses (at Fort Namutoni)& Smith´s Bush Squirrels at (at Halili, the Camp in the middle of Etosha)

Enjoy the pictures

Sea of White

If southwestern Bolivia had creatures bigger than cars wandering around waiting to shock you with their enormity, there would be a place to on earth to compare Etosha National Park to.
It doesn't, and there isn't.
This park is centered around an immense salt flat that big game likes to congregate around. The plains surrounding the blinding beautiful natural wonder are strewn with zebra, giraffes, elephants and lions, and you're likely to se... read more

'the floodlit waters'

Views: 769 Visited: Aug 2013 Reviewed: May 09, 2013

Etosha National park is superb. The view of the park from the sky is a vast bare, open expanse of shimmering green and white that covers almost half of the beautiful Etosha National park. We finally landed in South Africa in Windhoek. We drove to the park and had to first pick up a permit at the entrance then later stopped at the registration office to pay for our entrance fee which was $90 we had already booked a month in advance for our one ... read more

A feast of game

Views: 784 Visited: Mar 2012 Reviewed: May 01, 2013

For many decades, Etosha National Park has been a firm favorite among local and international travelers and rightly so - Etosha is one of Southern Africa’s greatest game park gems. Rest camps Halali, Namutoni, Okaukuejo and the latest editions Camp Onkoshi and Camp Dolomite flank the huge salt and mineral pan. The pan serves as a lifeline for mammals and birds roaming the 22,000 km2 of the park.

Staying at Etosha National Park for at lea... read more
