Etosha is one of the biggest and best parks in Southern Africa. It’s main highlight is a huge salt pan that was formed thousands of years ago when the river feeding this area changed course. Now it’s a dry desolate place that is still home to an astonishing variety of wildlife. One of the most unique features of Etosha are the floodlit watering holes. After the sun sets, animals come to these oasises in the desert for life sustaining water. Human visitors can sit inside a protected area, drink a local beer, and enjoy rare sightings in luxurious comfort. The first night we saw four out of the big five animals in about three hours, including black rhinos and leopards. Amazing!
