Etosha National Park is the largest of Namibia's game reserves. It spans 20,000km² in Northern Namibia. Wildlife that can be seen here include: Rhinos, Lions, Zebra, Gemsbok, Springbok, Wildebeest, Elephants, and Jackals. The park surrounds the Etosha salt pan, which attracts animals, particularly in the drier winter months, because it is a source of water in a very dry land.
To visit Etosha, one needs a vehicle. Visitors are not permitted to wander around the park (except in the enclosed camping/hotel areas) on foot. The B1 (from either Oshakati or Tsumeb) brings you to the park's eastern gate at Namutoni. The C38, from Outjo bring you to the park's southern gate.
There are also several safari companies operating from Windhoek and Swakopmund which offer tours of varying length in Etosha. Safari companies are also allowed to enter the western part of the park which is closed to private visitors.
As mentioned above, you need a vehicle to get around the park. The roads are all well-graded gravel, so there is no need to have a four-wheel drive. Since the dust generated by traffic is damaging to the environment, the speed limit is quite low.
There are three designated rest camps for visitors. They are enclosed by walls and fences, so there is no need to worry about being mauled by a lion in your sleep, nevertheless you should sleep in your bungaloo since lions are known to have entered to the camps on rare occasions. All three having facilities for camping, petrol stations, and some also have hotels.
Stay in your car; lions are dangerous. Etosha is in the malaria zone, so take appropriate precautions.
All facilities inside the park are run by Namibia Wildlife Resorts, a company owned by the Namibian Government. Their web site has contact information so you can call to make reservations or find out more information.
