Etosha National Park, 400 kilometers north of Windhoek is Namibia’s principal game reserve and a popular natural site. It’s ecosystem is unique: a salt pan – a geological depression – which every year is transformed into a lagoon during the rainy season. The particularity of Etosha, apart from its landscape, is its water holes at which animals gather all day long. While it is not possible to see all of the Big 5 animals since this national park does not have buffaloes, it is nevertheless possible to observe the other four (leopards, lions, elephants, black rhinoceros). The oryx, the emblematic antelope of Namibia, as well as the springbok can be easily observed here as well.
