DAY 2: Etosha National Park

your first Safari is awaiting!  you travel to the border of the famous and well-renowned wildlife haven – Etosha National Park. The afternoon is devoted to the abundant wildlife found in the National Park, which surrounds a parched salt desert known as the Etosha Pan. Despite the size of the Etosha National Park, only the edges of the pan are accessible to visitors. Game viewing in the park is primarily focused around the waterholes, some of which are spring fed and some supplied from a borehole, 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 such as 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 link the over 30 water holes allowing the visitor an opportunity to do a real game viewing safari throughout the park as each different area will provide various encounters. Late afternoon you will exit the park and head to your lodge located outside the park.

DAY 3: Etosha National Park

Today your guide takes you on a game drive exploring the Etosha National Park. You may encounter wildlife you have not seen the previous day. Dominating the Etosha National Park is the endless salt pan desert, which is nearly completely enclosed by the park. It is roughly 130 km long and as wide as 50 km in places. During Etosha’s notorious dry spells the pan is an eerie place, lying parched and cracked under the unforgiving African sun. It is claimed that game viewing is best during the dry periods as animals will then 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 foals, cubs and chicks are seen frolicking with their parents, and the sprouting new green shrubs and grasses create a pleasing green oasis. In the afternoon you travel back to your camp, where you enjoy the rest of the evening at leisure recalling the sightings of the last two days.
