One of the primary reasons to opt for a tailor-made trip to Etosha is to have the traveling distances and potential modes of travel explained and put in perspective. Secondary to this is understanding the different accommodation options and the wildlife experiences best suited to your needs.
Located in the sparsely populated country of Namibia, Etosha National Park is one of Africa's iconic wildlife preserves. In 1907 when it became a protected area, Etosha was an incredible 24 million acres in size. In 1967 it was reduced to a manageable 5.5 million acres and renamed Etosha, after its centerpiece, the great white pan. The sheer number of animals living in this desert environment is staggering. Waterholes are a hive of activity as endless columns come and go on the dusty plains to quench their thirsts. In the day's heat, there could be as many as eight species vying for a drink. Elephants are the masters and quickly commandeer prime positions. Under cover of darkness, those same waterholes, now floodlit, make for exceptional armchair game viewing. Black rhino sightings are frequent. African Sky offers both fly-in and overland safaris to Etosha. The package most suitable is curated specifically for the individual. It is essential to book with an experienced operator like African Sky, with years of experience.
