Although Etosha is well suited to DIY safaris, Etosha National Park accommodation is some of Africa’s finest, featuring luxury Etosha National Park safari lodges, world-class game lodges and spectacular tented camps.
Central and Eastern Etosha is probably best known: the expanse of land fringing the eastern and southern rim of the enormous depression that is the ancient salt pan itself.
Safari Lodges, Game Lodges & Tented Camps in Etosha National Park
Nothing grows in the salty, lime-rich pan except algae, but it and other smaller pans such as Okahakana are surrounded by grassland, mopane shrublands, and some woodland, and the area sustains a remarkable variety of life. Of the Big 5, only buffalo don’t reside here and that is more than made up for by exceptional sightings of black rhino, seldom seen in most other safari destinations.
The park’s 300-odd lions are relaxed around vehicles. Slinky, secretive leopards are of course harder to spot but certain waterholes are known to have a resident spotted cat. Etosha National Park safari lodges have excellent guides guaranteed to get you closest to the action. Etosha National Park tented camps likewise feature their own skilled safari staff.
There are some notable private reserves on Etosha’s borders, impressive not only in size but for the quality of game viewing on offer. Many also have waterholes, and while predators are scarcer, some harbour a good selection of game including specials such as sable, roan and rhino.
As they are also not bound by park rules, guests can be offered more diverse activities like guided walks or rhino tracking. Nature trails wind through some properties without dangerous game, perfect for downtime hours around Etosha National Park game lodges.
