As vegetation in most areas is sparse, the animals have learnt to drink during the day when predators are inactive and it is the safest time to be out in the open. It is not uncommon to see up to 7 different species of game at any waterhole.
Day 13: ETOSHA NATIONAL PARK
This day is spent with a morning and an afternoon game drive into the Etosha Game Reserve. This eastern side of the park has many waterholes where animals congregate to drink and even in the heat of the day, a wide range of wildlife can be seen.
Wildlife you are likely to see, at close quarters if you spend some time at the waterholes, includes a growing number of rhino – both black and white – and the endemic black-faced impala and Damara dik-dik. The Namibian trademarks, gemsbok and springbok, are common and there are good numbers of southern Africa’s big game including elephant, lion, leopard, cheetah, caracal, brown and spotted hyena, eland, roan, kudu, wildebeest, red hartebeest, and Burchell’s plains zebra, and black-backed jackal.
Photography at Etosha National Park is exceptional: the waterholes allow for unobtrusive close-ups and dramatic angles of the wildlife while the salt pan throws up a backdrop of shimmering white beneath a parched blue sky.Dinner and Overnight at The Mushara Outpost
