Just a happy guy who loves travelling, loves Africa and feels that travelling changes you forever.

Ghanzi – Windhoek – Etosha National Park, Namibia

Today we leave Botswana behind and travel to Windhoek, the capital of Namibia. Enjoy your evening out at a local restaurant or pay a visit to Joe’s Beer House.

We wake up early and leave Windhoek only 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. Here, we spend two nights usually setting up camp near a floodlit waterhole. If you keep a lookout, chances are you will most probably 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. We game around Etosha National Park, an enormous reserve of over 22,270 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. In the afternoon of our arrival we adventure on a short game drive, followed by a full day’s game drive the next day.
