There are now 4 rest-camps in Etosha National Park, Okaukuejo, Halali and Namutoni which have been upgraded, and Onkoshi Camp, an exclusive, eco-friendly retreat on the rim of the Salt Pan. Each camp has something different to offer in a remarkable setting. Visitors can now also enjoy guided day and night game drives with park rangers as well as following their own self-drive itinerary on the network of well marked roads.
On a Namibia safari, huge herds of game in particular Elephant, Giraffe and Zebra as well as many thousands of Springbok can be seen. There are high concentrations of Lion in Etosha amongst other animals such as Blue Wildebeest and Hyena. Also resident are Rhino and Cheetah (which are both endangered) as well as Leopard. Birdlife is prolific with well over 300 species including Flamingos and Pelicans after the rains.
The central features of Etosha are the massive Salt Pans (which account for a quarter of the entire park) and around 30 waterholes. The Salt Pan is fringed with natural springs and together with the various waterholes, act like a magnets for thirsty game especially as the dry season progresses. The Pan occasionally fills with water in the rainy season undergoing a stunning transformation - much to the delight of wetland bird species.
