Etosha National Park in detail

Flights & getting there

There’s no public transport into and around the park, which means that you must visit either in a private vehicle or as part of an organised tour.

The vast majority of roads in Etosha are passable to 2WD vehicles. The park speed limit is set at 60km/h, both to protect wildlife and keep down the dust.

The park road between Namutoni and Okaukuejo skirts Etosha Pan, providing great views of its vast spaces. Driving isn’t permitted on the pan, but a network of gravel roads threads through the surrounding savannah and mopane woodland and even extends out to a viewing site, the Etosha Lookout, in the middle of the salt desert.
