#EtoshaNationalPark located in #Namibia, is unique in Africa. The park’s main characteristic is a salt pan so large it can be seen from space. Yet there is abundant wildlife that congregates around the waterholes, giving you almost guaranteed game sightings. At the same time Etosha National Park is one of the most accessible game reserves in Namibia and Southern Africa. The name Etosha comes from Oshindonga word meaning Great White Place referring to the Etosha pan. Etosha could also mean "totally bare, white place with lots of dust" or could refer to the noise made by a person's feet when walking on the clay of the pan #BeautifulAfrica @namibiatravels @namtourismex @tropicalvacationspots @earth.vacation @bestvacations @craiglotter @checkoutafrica
