Scheduled Tour | 2 nights / 3 days |
Day 1: Etosha National Park
Your experienced safari-guide will fetch you from your hotel in Windhoek and you depart at around 08h30 from Windhoek towards Okahandja via Outjo into the famous Etosha National Park. Today we will already explore the Etosha National Park. We will stop at various waterholes and look out for antelopes, birds and carnivores. Before sunset we will leave the park and head to our accommodation.
Etosha National Park
Etosha was declared a game reserve by the German colonial administration back in 1907 and covers an area of more than 22 000 km². At a stage it covered a vast area of 93 240 km² and was the largest game reserve in the world. For various political reasons, the park was progressively diminished in size until by 1975 it had been reduced to its current size. In its centre lies a vast saltpan surrounded by grass and thorn savannah, Mopane bushland in the west and dry forest in the north-east. About two million years ago, this area was an enormous lake, fed by the Kunene River. However the lake slowly dried up because over time, the river changed its course. Today the pan is a shallow depression and has an approximate size of 5000 km².
Of the 114 mammals species found in the park, several are rare and endangered, such as the black Rhino and cheetah. Etosha’s current population of +- 600 Black Rhinos represents one of the few growing populations in the world.
The National Park has three Rest camps Okaukuejo, Halali and Namutoni. These all have restaurants, stores and swimming pools. The main entrance to the park is called the Andersson Gate at Okaukuejo in the south and the Von Lindequist Gate in the east near Namutoni.
Day 2: Etosha National Park
A full day in the Park lies ahead of us. Except for the rainy season, Etosha’s animals are depending on artificial waterholes and natural springs. Explore the various waterholes along this enormous saltpan. Lunch stop at one of the rest camps (lunch excluded). Encounter the big variety of wildlife in the Park during the course of the morning. More than 114 mammals species are found in the Park, several of them are rare and endangered like the black rhino of the black faced impala. You have a great chance of seeing some of the bigger mammals, like elephant and rhino and of course a highlight in any safari, the predators.
Day 3: Departure
