Etosha Tourist Attractions Namibia
Etosha National Park is one of Namibia's must-see natural attractions. The park is located around Etosha Pan, a low-lying area of approximately 6,000 square kilometers which, in times of heavy rainfall, may form a shallow lake which draws vast numbers of water fowl. In other times, the lake as such dries out, but trees, grassland and pools remain, drawing a rich collection of game and birds; one of the best game viewing areas in Africa from the largest to the smallest.
At the east end of the pan is Fort Namutoni which was built by the Germans, then attacked, taken and destroyed by the Ovambos. After retaking the fort, the Germans rebuilt it and today it is perfectly preserved, looking like a Foreign Legion fort lifted straight from the Sahara.
