Departing from Windhoek after your collection from your accommodation
between 8H00 and 8H30, we start our safari by travelling north via the
B2, passing towns such as Okahanja, Otjiwarongo and Outjo, before
reaching Etosha's Anderson Gate. From the gate our game viewing begin,
with our destination for the evening at the Okaukuejo Camp.
Etosha is regarded as one of the very best and diverse wildlife sanctuaries in Africa. We systematically explore the many waterholes of Etosha with game drives, and even at night, there is still time to see wildlife at the flood-lighted camp waterholes. Departing Etosha after breakfast and a early morning game drive, we begin our journey back to Windhoek, to arrive late afternoon around 16H00.
Etosha National Park, Namibia.The Etosha Park is one of the oldest national parks in Southern Africa, with their 100th year anniversary in 2007. Due to the very unique and diverse wildlife, the Park is considered to be one of the best wildlife viewing destinations in Africa. To bring size of the Etosha Park in comparison and perspective: It is nearly the (22,750 km²) same size as Switzerland!
In a huge country such as Namibia (the whole western Europe and the UK will fit into it.) it is only a small part of the many conservancies and protected areas in Namibia. .
The animal diversity in Etosha compare well with other African Game Reserves, but the Big 5 animals (lion, leopard, elephant, buffalo and rhino) are not all present. The ecology is to dry for buffalo, who need a lot of water on a daily basis.
The elephants found in the Etosha Park are of the biggest in the world. This due to the extremely high concentrations of calcium in both the natural water and plants. Despite their size, their tasks are small and often broken, because there is a lack of phosphorous in the plants and grasses in Etosha. Not only are the elephants of the largest in the world, but the calcium rich environment also has the same effect on other species; zebra, springbok and even the predators such as the lions and leopards.
