Etosha National Park is Namibias's top wildlife area offering a huge variety of wildlife and a real sense of wilderness that has been lost from its more well-known counterparts in other African nations.
The Etosha National Park prides itself on its careful management of its resources, keeping a tight control on the size of the rest camps and preventing any feeling of commercialism from invading the park.

Look out for elephants making their way to a waterhole, eland antelope leaping over the plains, hyenas skulking around at night and rhinos lying in the shade. You might well see several kinds of wild cat, including lion, cheetah and leopard. You will be constantly delighted by the many different types of bird that are to be found in the park.

There are a variety of types of accomodation available, from campsites to bungalows. Perhaps the best place is Okaukuejo camp which has its own floodlit waterhole where you can watch the animals come down to drink at night. The winter months of May to September are the best time to visit. The heat is bearable, and the rainfall is minimal, so the animals will be concentrated around the waterholes.
