21 DAYS CAPE TOWN TO VICTORIA FALLS
SOUTH AFRICA, NAMIBIA, BOTSWANA & ZIMBABWE


DAY 11: Etosha National Park (B / L / D)

Today we make our way 150 km across the park, keeping a look out for the many different mammals, reptiles, birds and insects in the various regions. As the vegetation types change, so does the animal and bird life that relies on it, and so different sections of the Park offer a variety of different game options. After a full day of game viewing, we spend the evening relaxing at our camp in the north of the park, Namutoni. After dinner why not head to the waterhole where you can sit and observe the animals may come to drink in the evenings.








One of the best wildlife preserves in the world

If you want to see the famous large African animals, and you don't want to spend a fortune doing it, this is the place for you. Easy 4 1/2 hour drive on paved roads from Windhoek. You don't need to pay guides to see the animals: it is insanely easy to drive yourself around and see everything you might possibly want to see. We spent 3 nights in the Halali camp, and I think that is the right amount of time to get your fill. Comparable in many ways to viewing animals in South Africa's Kruger, but very different because of the arid nature of the park. Kruger is arguably "better" -- if only because it is larger and more diverse than Etosha -- but we saw more cats in Etosha, and we enjoyed the vast "emptiness" of the place. A must see destination for every independent traveler in southern Africa. Bring a long lens for your camera, and you'll come back with wildlife shots equal to those in National Geographic!  - Dave's_reviews(Tripadvisor)
