Today is spent exploring the vast Etosha National Park. Spanning over 22 000 km sq the park is home to 4 of the Big 5 animals. Etosha is named after the huge salt pan central to the park. The Etosha Pan meaning “great white place” and covering 4500 km sq is one of our stops for the day. Here you can get out of the vehicle and take in the expanse of the pan.

During lunch guests can take a break in the camp pool or at the waterhole. The afternoon is spent driving back to the exit of the park and to the lodge for the night 2 km outside of the park.
