    Day 5,Full Etosha tour

    Full Etosha tour will give you the chance the explore one of the largest game reserves in Africa. Etosha owes it unique landscape to the Etosha Pan, a vast, shallow, chalk-white depression of approximately 5000 square km that forms the heart of the park. Once a large inland lake fed by rivers from the north and east, it dried up 120 million years ago as continental drift changed the slop of the land and the course of the tributaries. A series of waterholes along the southern edge of the pan guarantee rewarding and often spectacular game viewing. Of the 114 mammal species found in the park, several are rare and endangered, such as the black rhino and cheetah. Other large mammals in the park include elephant, giraffe, blue wildebeest, mountain and plains zebra, hyena and lion. Antelope species are to be seen in abundance as well. For the greater part of the year (the dry season) Etosha’s animals and birds are dependent on about 30 springs and waterholes. These provide excellent game viewing and photographic opportunities.
