Have spent months driving through RSA, Lesotho, Botswana and really could have just come here and seen it all. Great park, large range, big 5, look out water holes in camps, large roaming herds, not crowded (and this is busy season), well maintained roads. Highly...More

Saw tons of elephants, zebra, springbok, gemsbok, wildebeest, impala, and 3 lions. Worth a 1 day trip. More than that would be too much for me.

We have been to Kruger many times so we were curious about Etosha. Read that it should be better. Our verdict is that kruger offers much more variation in landscapes and game. We were in Etosha 3rd week of may. Lots of dry land (even...More

Very easily accessible for self drivers, worth staying at least 2 nights in each camp if you can. Book campsites for NWR through the cape Town office directly to make your life easier! Saw everything, can't imagine it better later in the year when it's...More

Such an awesome trip through the park. Seeing the drastic different changes in landscape was almost as impressive as the amazing animals. We saw the usual springbok, zebras, and wildebeest but got up close and personal with a giant old elephant and a family of...More

Etosha is one of the most magical places I've been to and really loved every moment. Entrance costs 80.00ND per person plus 10.00ND for the car. We spent 2 full days (8 hours of driving each day 😌) coming in from the west and eventually...More

We recently returned to Etosha for a visit and stayed at two different types of chalets in the Okaukuejo camp. Both chalets were run down and not well maintained at all; missing light bulbs, no toilet seat in one, a faulty door lock, noisy fridge...More

Sorry Jonathon, as Fedor advises the Park is closed to visitors at night. If you are able to stay within the Park, they run late evening and early morning drives which get you to the watering holes before the gates open... More
