3 Days Etosha Camping Tour
Etosha owes its unique landscape to the Etosha Pan, a vast, shallow chalky-white depression of approximately 5000 km2 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 slope 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.

A full day’s game we leave early to enjoy the cool morning air as we drive across Etosha to Halali camp, situated in the middle of the park. Along the way we visit waterholes and are afforded splendid views of the massive Etosha Pan.

We stop at Halali camp for a rest and have lunch and there is time to visit the Halali waterhole and to make use of the swimming pool and bar facilities before continuing to the eastern side of the park and our camp in the Namutoni region. Overnight camping

Drive back to Windhoek, we are traveling on the main road, passing through a town of Okahandja, the home of Namibia’s largest wood carving market. The stalls operated on a local co-operative basis and are one of the best places to shop for truly Namibian souvenirs.
We are due back into the city afternoon time and you will be dropped off at your accommodation on our return.
