Namibian Safari in Etosha National Park

Etosha is one of Africa’s most famous National Parks covering 22 000 square kilometres. At its centre lies a vast saltpan surrounded by grassy plains and thorn savannah bordered by Mopane bushland in the west and dry forest in the north-east.

Around two million years ago, this area was a vast lake, fed by the Kunene river. However over time the river fluxed and changed in course and hence the salt lake receeded leaving just a few waterholes to the south of the park which draws the game out of the shade for replenishment and the salt pan - a saline flat, 130 km long by 50km at its widest in the eastern sector of the park.

The Pan itself is thought to have emerged over 12 million years ago as a shallow lake fed by the Kunene River. Since then environmental change has since lowered the water level so that the pan only holds water for a brief period each year when it teems with flamingos and pelicans.

As well as the Salt pan that attracts fabulous wildlife Etosha is known for its impala, the black faced variety and is believed to have the tallest elephants in Africa, measuring up to 4m at the shoulder. The park is also known as being one of the last wild sanctuaries of the endangered black rhino.

Etosha National Park is a must for a safari in Namibia as there is a rich array of wildlife, including elephant, giraffe, lion, leopard and a wide range of antelope making game drives here are superb. There are also of course the smaller creatures such as warthog, jackal and baboon that provide a continual and often entertaining sideshow while the birdlife here and throughout Namibia is prolific, with over 400 species present.
