Etosha National Park

Etosha National Park is one of Africa's most famous parks and remains Namibia's most popular wildlife destination.  It does get very busy at times.  Etosha offers good game viewing, however in all honesty much better game viewing is available elsewhere in Africa (e.g. Botswana, Tanzania or Zambia).  Etosha is therefore best suited to people who want to add on a couple of days' safari to a Namibia itinerary without venturing any further afield, and who are happy to see some wildlife but don't need their socks blown off.  
Etosha consists primarily of a huge salt pan and a number of watering holes that provide a focus for the looping game drive routes off the main park road.  Etosha was originally designed for, and is therefore particularly well-suited to, self-drive tours.

Etosha National Park: where to stay

The main road through the park is broken up by three large hotel complexes (restcamps) that were all designed to cater for the large self-drive market. These three camps, Namutoni, Okaukuejo and Halali take up the centre of the park and in high season provide accommodation in campsites and hotels for literally thousands of tourists. Staying here you see more tourists and vehicles than wildlife!
