Reasons to visit Etosha National Park:

- Etosha has significant numbers of endangered black rhino and a higher density of giraffe than many other areas.
- The huge Etosha salt pan is a spectacular sight and it causes the entire area to have a unique whitish colour.
- Greater and lesser flamingos, as well as other water birds such as the Eastern white pelican, flock to the pan when there is water.
- Incredibly strange-looking trees of the African moringa (ghost tree) variety are found west of Okaukuejo and this area is referred to as Sprokieswoud, or the haunted forest.
- The Etosha National Park is the home of 114 mammal species, 110 reptile species, 16 amphibian species and 340 bird species.
