Coordinates : -18.91668,15.825806 (Open in Google Maps)

Subjects : According to official data the park is home to 114 species of mammals (including the rare black rhino, roan antelope and the endemic black-faced impala), 340 birds and 16 amphibians. Among the big five, the only one missing is the buffalo. During the dry season (see below) every day encounter zebras, giraffes, elephants, antelopes, oryx, kudu, springbok, impala, eland and ostriches, most likely there will hyenas and rhinos, while for cats the fate reigns supreme.

Recommended equipment : Over 95% of the photos will be taken from the car window to not too far from the subject, then a telephoto lens 100/300 or 100/400 is the most functional. If you wish to take advantage of special or extreme close-ups well be 500 or 600 (for those fortunate enough to own them) although it is not easy to maneuver them in strezzi spaces usually available. A wide-angle is, of course, essential for landscape photos and groups of animals ambientati. Essential is a beanbag to be positioned on the window down and on which rest the camera and very useful snap cable in order to minimize the vibrations. It is also important to be able to sit still other passengers in the vehicle while you shoot and it is not always easy.

Best months : The dry season runs from May to September-October (winter Namibian) and guarantees the sky is blue and pleasant temperatures. In addition, the lack of water forces the animals to be concentrated around the pools fed by underground springs, making it easier and safer with barracudas. The downside is the lack of the beautiful shades of green African ... but you can not have everything. In the wet period the animals are dispersed over large areas of the park and this added to the lush vegetation makes it much more difficult sightings. On the other hand in this period grew excessively the presence of birds.

How to get there : Usually flies to Johannesburg and from there on the Namibian capital, Windohek, where it is advisable to rent a car (a 4x4 is not essential) with which you can travel the length and breadth of the vast area of the park.

Visits : The park is open all year round. The three entrance gates, as well as those of three buildings located in the park are open from dawn to dusk. Timetables are displayed and should be respected because the warden are on rather strict. By car you can go through all the marked slopes, unless otherwise indicated, is strictly forbidden to leave the slopes and off the vehicle outside of the places where it is expressly permitted.

Notes : Etosha means "great white place" and owes its name to Pan, a large salt depression that covers about 25% of the large area of ??the park. During the rainy season its surface is covered with a few inches of water became a refuge for many aquatic. But the water evaporates rapidly transforming the pools at the edge of Pan essential sources of life as well as in incredible aggregation points fauna to the delight of photographers and visitors in general. Inside the park there are three buildings (among other things comfortably refurbished in 2007/2008 for the centenary of the park): Okaukejo, Halali and Namutoni. I absolutely recommend to stay in these structures inside the park to be already in place at dawn and, above all, to enjoy the incredible spectacle of the illuminated pool that each of these fields offers. The pool of Okaukejo, as I have already written the elsewhere on this site and I like to reiterate here, alone is worth a trip to Namibia. You could simply starvene sitting at its edge for a whole day (the night) and you would see pass before your eyes representatives of almost all the fauna of the park. I assure you that on the night of Okaukejo is magical, if you are lucky enough to live it you can figure it out. My advice therefore is to spend at least four nights in the park, of which two Okaukejo and one each in the other two structures. And if you can afford the extra days, do it, certainly will not get bored. Keep in mind also that the value of the three structures is not too bad especially when compared to private (those within the park are state) of similar quality at the edges of the park. Bottom Line: The area is considered "malaria free" and in fact in the dry season do not see many mosquitoes. We, sincerely, traveling with a doctor very thorough and visiting other parts of the country, we have made Prophylactic Malarone.
