Situated in northwest Namibia, Etosha National Park gets its name from the large Etosha pan which is 4,760 square kilometres and covers 23% of the area of the total area of the park. The name Etosha comes from Oshindonga word meaning ‘Great White Place’ referring to the salt pan. The salt pan is usually dry, but fills with water briefly in the summer, when it attracts pelicans and flamingos in particular.

The park is home to hundreds of species of mammals, birds and reptiles, including several threatened and endangered species such as the black rhinoceros. There are five restcamps inside the park with lodges and three of the sites have facilities for camping. All restcamps have game-proof fences.
