Etosha National Park doesn’t have the look of your typical safari journey you might be used to seeing in Kenya or Tanzania. The park features a salt pan that is so gigantic you can see it from outer space, along with other exotic landscapes not often found in Africa. It’s also teeming with wildlife despite the somewhat desolate looking conditions. If you’ve never been, or just want to remember what you saw when you were there, get ready to go on a photographic journey that shows off the beauty of Namibia’s Etosha National Park.
