Namibia’s plains are home to a large diversity of wildlife residing at the Etosha National Park. The park covers a distance of 22 700 km² and was established in 1907. Recognized as one of the oldest conservation areas in Africa, the name ‘Etosha’ means ‘large white place’ and was derived from the salt pan of a dried up lake.
An abundant amount of 110 mammal species, 230 bird species and numerous insect species make up the wildlife of the park. Commonly seen species include elephants, zebras, springbok and lions. The summer months create an active hub of bird life in Etosha, making the park a bird watcher’s paradise.
