Etosha NP Sightings

Three restcamps are located in the park. When entering the park from the southwest, soon one will find Camp Okaukuejo, being the biggest of the camps. From the eastside, Camp Namutomi is well within reach. Located just between these camps, Halali Camp can be found. At night, it’s a great experience to enjoy the animals visiting the illuminated watering places nearby the camps. Do not hesitate to buy a map of the park in one of the Camps, in which all routes and accessible loops can be found and moreover: all watering places, that can be visited easily by tourists, are well indicated on those maps. Photographers have not been forgotten either. The map tells you at what time of the day you will have the best possible day-light at the different watering places!

Thoughts about Etosha NP

Situated in the North of Namibia, Etosha NP with its more than 22000 km2, is bigger than half the Netherlands. In the time of its foundation, Etosha was about 5 times bigger, making it the biggest park in the world at that time. During the 1970’s territories for various human tribes were created and that is how e.g. Ovamboland (the former northern part of Etosha) came into existence. A large fence was built, to keep the game inside the park, with the result that various passageways were interrupted, which made it impossible for specific species to go to more humid areas during periods of draught. In order to solve this problem of water shortage, watering places have been set up.

About a quarter of the park consists of the so-called Etosha-hollow. This is a huge whitish untamed marshland, which gets flooded from time to time. The Etosha-hollow is not accessible to the public.

Throughout the park, gravel roads have been constructed to offer tourists the opportunity of admiring this fabulous nature area.
