Excursions to Etosha National Park
“Etosha”. A stirring and evocative word that immediately brings to mind one of the great wilderness wonders of the world. A vast, shimmering salt pan that bears testimony to the melting of ice sheets and ancient shifts of tectonic activity.
In its beautiful desolation, the Etosha Pan lives up to its name, which means "Great White Place" in the Oshindonga tongue. When the summer rains come, the pan springs to life with water pools, which attract massive flocks of flamingoes.
But there is a lot more to the Etosha National Park than its pan and its seasonal winged visitors. Etosha is just as renowned for its wide and diverse variety of wildlife, including lion, elephant, rhino, leopard, springbok, two species of zebra, and the beautiful oryx antelope, the national symbol of Namibia.
