Places in North-Central Namibia
Etosha National Park
Etosha National Park ranks as one of the world’s great wildlife-viewing venues. Its unique nature is encapsulated by the vast Etosha pan – an immense, flat, saline desert that, for a few days each year, is converted by the rains into a shallow lagoon teeming with flamingos and pelicans.
Tsumeb is one Namibian town worth a poke around, especially if you are trying to get a feel for the country’s urban side. The streets are very pleasant to wander, made more so by the plentiful shady trees, it’s reasonably compact, and there’s usually a smile or two drifting your way on the busy streets.
