Etosha National Park

4.2
For nature lovers, a trip to Etosha National Park seems like a dream: the vast salt desert houses hundreds of animal species, which roam the arid lands and gather near the many waterholes. Book a guided trip or explore in your own vehicle, discovering the unusual landscape and the massive salt pan at its center. On a tour of Etosha National Park, depending on the places you visit and the time of the year, you'll likely encounter herds of elephants, giraffes, jackals, lions, rhinos, and others, drawn to the local springs to quench their thirst. A bird-watching haven, the park also encompasses woodland, savannahs, endless barren plains, and forests of eerie moringa trees. Find what you're looking for from your Etosha National Park holiday, by planning the whole thing with us using our handy Namibia trip planner.

Where to stay in Etosha National Park

Etosha National Park provides a couple of fenced camping areas for visitors who choose to stay in the vicinity, some of which have both private lodges as well as designated campsites. Camping outside of these areas is not allowed, and you can only check in or leave before the sun sets. Every campsite features waterholes equipped with floodlights, so you can admire the animals throughout your stay--especially at night, when you might see rhinos gathering to drink.
