Get to Know Etosha National Park

Larger than the Kruger or Serengeti, Namibia’s premier safari reserve protects the Etosha Pan, which is fringed by a series of perennial waterholes that attract abundant wildlife in the dry season

Extending over 22,750 square kilometres, Etosha National Park is situated in northern Namibia, a relatively moist part of a country otherwise dominated by desert landscapes. The park’s centrepiece is the seasonal Etosha Pan, a vast salt-encrusted depression that accounts for a quarter of its surface area. The pan is fringed by dozens of perennial waterholes that act as powerful magnets for wildlife in the dry season, and are particularly rewarding for wildlife photographers.

FAQs about Etosha

  • June to October is the best time to visit Namibia - wildlife viewing in the dry season is the best in all national parks, especially in Etosha National Park. The newborn animals are also born in summer.
  • Some areas won’t suit the family and it's also wise to be aware of malaria in others, however, South Africa has a few malaria-free safari locations and there are other safari lodges and bush camps throughout Africa that cater to young children and toddlers, just do the research beforehand.
  • You are putting yourself in a position where you are exposed to wild animals for which many of them are dangerous. However, on a safari every precaution is made to ensure your safety when going on a game drives or walks. This is why it is of absolute importance that you listen to your well-trained guide at all times, failure to do so might result in harm, however, if you are respectful of your surroundings and the fact that you are in a wild place you will be perfectly safe and have an experience of a lifetime.
