The park is home to 4 of the Big Five – elephant, lion, leopard, and rhino. Despite the size of the Etosha National Park, only the southern edge of the pan is accessible to visitors. Game viewing in the park is primarily focused around the waterholes. Some of which are spring fed and some are from a borehole. The ideal places to sit and watch over 114 different game species. Or for an avid birder, more than 340 bird species.

Popular game species such as giraffe, blue wildebeest, plains and mountain zebra, hyena, lion, leopard. Antelopes include kudu, oryx, eland. As well as some of the endangered species. Such as Black rhino, cheetah, and the black-faced impala are all found here. An extensive network of roads links the over 30 water holes. Allowing visitors the opportunity of a comprehensive game viewing safari throughout the park as each different area will provide various encounters.

Day 6: Etosha National Park

Today your guide again takes you on a game drive in the Etosha National Park. We may encounter animal species we have not seen the previous day. Look forward to any new surprises at the different waterholes visited. The Etosha Pan dominates the park. This salt pan desert is lined by numerous watering holes. Roughly 130 km long and as wide as 50 km in places.

During Etosha’s notorious dry spells the pan is a deathly place, lying parched and cracked under the molten African sun. It is claimed that game viewing is best during the dry periods. This is because animals will congregate closer to water. But even in the rainy season; the park remains an abundant wildlife haven. You then have the pleasure of experiencing the rebirth of life. As the young play with their parents. And the sprouting of new green shrubs and grasses create a pleasing green oasis. In the afternoon we travel back to our lodge where we enjoy the rest of the evening at leisure. Enjoy an optional open vehicle game drive. Your guide will assist you with this booking.

Classic: La Rochelle Lodge – Breakfast
Superior: Overnight at Onguma Collection – Breakfast, light lunch, and Dinner (incl. a selection of local drinks)
