Get up close to lion and elephant at the gushing springs of Etosha National park
The perennial springs of Namibia’s Etosha National Park offers a precious oasis for the locals to enjoy. And here the locals are giraffe, elephant, big cat and other wildlife. On your Etosha holiday you’ll see creatures wild and wonderful pausing for a well-earned drink on their journey across the vast flats of the Etosha Pan.
Covering 22,270km2, there is an amazing diversity of wildlife that you’ll encounter as you explore Etosha on your holiday safari. You’ll find around 114 species of mammal, and more than 400 different kinds of bird. It’s hardly surprisingly that this is one of Namibia’s most popular destinations for wildlife and nature lovers.
Etosha National Park is dominated by the Etosha salt pan, which in Ondonga means ‘the place where no plants grow’. Part of the Kalahari basin, the white plains of Etosha Pan formed over 100 million years ago and extend 130km. This means that life for the wildlife is not always easy.
With a guided 4X4 safari, you’ll have the chance to see elephant, rhino, lion and giraffe as they roam the plains seeking much-needed waterholes. These life-giving springs attract creatures from miles around, making them the ideal spot for a game and birdlife safari. With expert guides, Namibian desert safaris and photo opportunities that come round only once in a lifetime, our Etosha holidays offer a truly unique travel experience.
