Holidays to Etosha National Park

An expanse of open plains and vast salt pan, safari holidays to Etosha National Park have an otherworldly edge to them. A protected area in northern Namibia, Etosha is famously one of the best places to see the endangered black rhino, along with four out of the Big Five (plus it is malaria free!) While an expansive of desert-like (and water-less) terrain, game viewing is excellent here as wildlife concentrate around the only reliable sources of water: natural and man-made watering holes. Easily accessible, Etosha is a popular destination for fly drive or self-drive holidays – ask our Africa Travel Specialists about creating a tailor-made itinerary just for you.

Travel Tips & Advice for Etosha National Park

Etosha Activities


It’ll came as no surprise that the primary activity in Etosha National Park is wildlife watching – either on game drives or sitting round the watering holes. You’ll find that the best time to spot lion, elephant and rhino is at first light or late evening. And during the heat of the day, when wildlife activity is at its lowest, we suggest taking a cooling dip in the swimming pool of your camp or lodge.

Etosha Food & Drink


As part of your luxury safari experience in Etosha National Park you’ll find that all meals are included in the price of your stay – which camp or lodge you choose will determine the type of cuisine you are served up. You’re likely to dine al fresco with boma dinners underneath the stars or round a traditional braai (BBQ) both popular options.

Etosha Attractions


The biggest draw-card for both the wildlife and visitors to Etosha National Park are the watering holes. Game – sometimes in big numbers – gather round these sources of water; one of the most popular and well-known is Okaukuejo, which is lit by floodlights in the evening – be sure to grab your spot on one of the benches!
