Etosha National Park, Namibia Photo Tour

Etosha National Park, located in Northern Namibia, is one of Africa’s most unique National Parks. It’s main characteristics – apart form boasting 4 out of the big 5 – is that at its center is a salt pan large enough to be seen from space! Believed to have been formed over 100 million years ago it is 130km long and 50km wide. That’s pretty big and it looks bigger than that in real life!

Etosha can be loosely translated as “Great White Place” in the Ovambo language – and it is their traditional name for the land that stands to this day.
