Visible from Space?!

Its quite astonishing to think that the Etosha pan is visible even from space!  It speaks volumes for the sheer vastness of this destination as a whole……

Largely untouched by modern man, Namibia is a land of vast quietness, endless horizons, wide star-studded skies, golden deserts and intriguing rocky plains…..  And of course, the Etosha Pan.  This vast, open expanse of shimmering white covers around 4,800km².  That is close to a 1/4 of the whole of the beautiful Etosha National Park!  It is the largest salt pan in Africa.  Originally a lake, it is believed to have formed more than 100 million years ago!

Must Do

  • Spend a delightful day in the quaint seaside town of Swakopmund, the adventure capital of Namibia and starting point for trips up and down the coast.
  • Stand awe-struck by the Fish River Canyon, the second largest canyon in the world.
  • See the mysterious, ancient Bushman/San paintings at Twyfelfontein.
  • Marvel at the desert-adapted elephant and rhino in Damaraland.
