Etosha National Park is one of Namibia's main attractions. With the country firmly under German rule at the turn of the 20th century, the Governor of German South West Africa (as Namibia was then called), Dr. F von Lindequist proclaimed Etosha a national game reserve in 1907. At the time the reserve covered over 100 000 square km.

The park currently covers an area of 22 000 square kilometres, of which approximately 4 700 square km is covered by the magnificent Etosha Pan. The Etosha Pan is a flat depression created many years ago by constant geological change. The Park is named after this endless white Pan. The first native tribe at the Park referred to the shimmering mirages on the endless horizon of the park as Etosha.

This park boast over fifty species of game and over two hundreds bird species. There is a huge population of springboks in the park amongst others. The contrasting vegetation zones of the Etosha National Park make it one of the best game viewing parks in Africa and it is a prime photographic destination boasting some good birding opportunities.
