One of the largest parks in Africa, Etosha National Park spans almost 14,000 square miles. Located in Namibia's game-rich northwest corner, Etosha, which means "Great White Place," is a spectacular site for rhino tracking, game drives, nature walks and nocturnal wildlife viewing.
Etosha comprises a series of waterholes as well as a huge shallow depression, the Etosha Pan. Though dry for most of the year, the pan fills with water after a heavy rainy season and attracts a variety of game, including elephants, lions and antelope. In all, Etosha is home to 340 bird species, 114 mammal species, 110 reptile species, 16 amphibian species and only one species of fish.
