Etosha National Park – Namibia
Welcome to the Etosha National Park, being one of the biggest and most populated National Parks worldwide, this is a must that cannot be missed. The north is a contrast to the rest of Namibia. Embossed with grasslands, big camelthorn trees, green landscapes, Savanna and a vivid wild- and birdlife the Etosha National Park is a haven for wildlife photographers and wildlife lovers.
The abundance of game in Etosha National Park is somewhat unexpected, showcasing some of the most common and rarest wildlife species. The areas with thicker vegetation are home to elephant (some of the largest in Africa due to the vitamins and nutrients found in the ground), the endangered black rhino and even leopard. Lions are camouflaged in the pale- golden colour of the grasslands, while giraffes rise- high above most of the dry vegetation.
Birders will love the rainy season in Etosha. After good rains the salt pan fills with water attracting a cloud of flamingos. More than 340 bird species have been counted in Etosha National Park. Among the migratory species, the European bee-eater is possibly the most popular sighting. The game reserve is also home to the world’s largest bird, the ostrich, and the heaviest flying bird, the kori bustard.
Be sure to encounter a once in life time experience at the Etosha National Park.
