Etosha National Park is truly a unique place in an arid wilderness. The focal part of the park is a massive salt pan which can be seen from space. The periphery of this and the adjoining pans host great numbers of general game such as gemsbok, springbok, eland, zebra and the regionally endemic black-faced impala. Healthy elephant and black rhino populations occur in the park. One has a good chance of seeing the larger predators here, such as lion, spotted hyena and leopard, as well as an array of the smaller predators. The birdlife is excellent, especially during the wet season when all the summer migrants return. Etosha is a national park that can be experienced on a self-drive safari, through a tour operator or one could stay in one of the luxury private lodges adjoining the park. The highlight of any trip to Etosha is most definitely sitting out at dusk or dawn, overlooking a waterhole from one of the camp's hides, and watching an orchestra of wildlife come to quench their thirst.
