Etosha roughly translates to “The Great White Place” from the Ovambo Language. The popularity of the park is often linked to the 130 km long Etosha Pan. However those ferocious and timid beings that depend on the pan and the environment surrounding it make the park a significant landmark in North-western Namibia. If you are looking to explore Namibia and hope to find hotels in Namibia, Windhoek, you could find refuge at AVANI Windhoek Hotel & Casino. Hop onto a jeep and observantly travel around the park while life in all forms, traverse these rugged landscapes.
Animals and birds in the Etosha National Park become adventurous at different times of the year. If you visit during winter, the weather is dry and you are sure to spot zebra and antelope close to the watering holes. Zoom the lens of your camera and you will spot the stalkers, lions and cheetahs. The greenery colonizes the landscape during summer and it is also the best time for all bird-lovers. Watch as these chirpy beings hop and fly from tree to hedge.
The immense pan that can be spotted from space is also fed during the rainy season. During this period it would be easy to get a closer look at elephants and ostriches wandering close to the deep pan.
Watch as they charge angrily towards intruders! Don’t worry, the elephants and rhinos are peaceful beings; just make sure you don’t intrude on their freedom. It is best to observe from a safe distance.
The park fees understandably differ depending on your age. Make sure you have made note of the charges when you are planning your trip to Namibia. Your adventure at the park will be unforgettable, without doubt!
