Etosha National Park location map

Etosha location map

Located in northwestern Namibia, a country on Africa's west coast, Etosha National Park is located near Odangwa and Namutoni airports. Other airports in the country include Eros, Windhoek, and Walvis Bay. Larger airports such as Windhoek are often serviced by more international flights, but travellers are able to take a connecting flight nearer to Etosha National Park.

Etosha National Park is well-serviced by road networks, making the journey to the reserve easier than those to more remote national parks throughout Africa. There are three gates to the park: Anderson Gate, to the south, Von Lindequist Gate, to the east, and Nehale lya Mpingana Gate, to the north. Around each of these gates, travellers will find camps and lodges (both outside of and within the park's limits). In addition, there are two airports - Namutoni airport and Mushata airstrip - very near the Von Lindequist Gate. 

Etosha watering holes map

While the Etosha Pan is known mostly as a dry lakebed, there are several waterholes in the area. Visiting one of these waterholes, such as Natuka naoka Pan (located west of the Etosha Pan) or Fisher's Pan (to the east), provides travellers with the best chance of seeing wildlife in their natural habitat. In the dry season, especially, animals will flock to these areas in huge numbers.
