Windhoek – Etosha National Park, Namibia
We wake up early and leave Windhoek to make our way north to Etosha National Park, an enormous reserve of over 20, 000 square kilometres surrounding a central salt depression or ‘pan’. Seasonally, the pan is full of water, but specially managed waterholes sustain around 114 mammals and about 340 species of bird. We spend two nights here usually setting up camp near a floodlit waterhole. If you keep a lookout, you could witness a range of frequent night visitors including elephant, giraffe, zebra and even lion and hyena. This makes for one of the most unforgettable wildlife encounters in Namibia – a true ‘African’ experience and most definitely a highlight of any trip to Namibia. In the afternoon of our arrival we adventure on a short game drive, followed by a full day’s game drive the next day.
