The Park covers an area of 22 270 square kilometres of saline desert, savannah and woodland. Etosha is one of the largest game reserves in Africa. The main feature of the park is the salt pan, which is a vast shallow depression of white saline sand that shimmers with mirages during the heat of most days. It is known as the ‘great white place of dry water'. To observe the large herds of game against this eerie background makes the Etosha game-viewing experience unique.
