Etosha & Zambezi

Africa at its most authentic!

Head to northern Namibia and Etosha National Park, famous for its vast amount of wildlife and unique landscape. Then explore the lush Zambezi region in the north east.

Etosha National Park is famous for its abundance of wildlife and unique landscape. The park surrounds a parched salt desert, known as the Etosha Pan, and is home to four of the Big 5 – elephant, lion, leopard and rhino. 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 over 30 water holes allowing visitors the opportunity of an extensive game viewing safari over the stretch of the park as each different area will provide different encounters.

Namibia’s lush Zambezi region boasts magnificent woodlands and perennial rivers. Despite the fact that most of Namibia is arid, this area is lush, the soil rich and the wildlife plentiful. It is a lively hotbed where one can see subsistence and cattle farming and the well-known traditional wood carvings. This is also where you will see traditional huts and homesteads, still in popular use today.

ETOSHA NATIONAL PARK

The day is devoted purely to the abundant wildlife found in the Etosha National Park, which surrounds a parched salt desert known as the Etosha Pan. The park is home to 4 of the Big Five - elephant, lion, leopard and rhino. The Park was proclaimed as Namibia's first conservation area in 1907 by the then Governor, von Lindequist. Despite the size of the Etosha National Park, only the southern edge of the pan is accessible to visitors. Game viewing in the park is primarily focussed 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.
