The 3-day Etosha Budget Lodge Safari is an opportunity to visit Namibia's top game reserve, Etosha National Park, to experience an affordable but comfortable and short wildlife safari.
This well-priced Namibia Tour takes you on game viewing drives in Etosha Park and offers excellent opportunities for sighting the nocturnal animals that visit the floodlit waterholes at Okaukuejo, Namutoni and Halali camps. The comfortable accommodation on this safari trip will be at either Okaukuejo, Namutoni or Halali camp in Etosha Park.
This is a great way to explore wildlife-rich Etosha National Park without breaking the bank!
The 3 Day Etosha Budget Lodge Safari departs from Windhoek at 08h00, from where we head to the famous Etosha National Park in northwestern Namibia.
Our choice of camp depends on the animals' movements, but we will spend two nights at either Okaukuejo or Halali camp. The camps both have a restaurant, basic shop and swimming pool. The camps in Etosha also feature floodlit waterholes, allowing for 24-hour game viewing. During the dry winter season, elephant and black rhinoceros are regular visitors to the waterholes, as well as a variety of other wild animals, including leopard and lion.
Etosha National Park is best known for the vast salt pan, a 5000 sq km depression that becomes an oasis during the rainy season and attracts myriad animals and birdlife, including thousands of flamingos. During the dry season, the arid salt pan is a silver-white backdrop of shimmering mirages. Etosha National Park is named after this dry lakebed, with the name meaning 'great white place of dry water'. Etosha is home to 340 bird species and over 100 mammal species, notably the endangered cheetah and black rhino, as well as black-faced impala, tsessebe, roan antelope and gemsbok.
Today we head into this 22 270 km² game reserve on an early morning and a late afternoon game drive, taking in the wide-open expanse of the Etosha Pan.
During the heat of the day, we relax at our rest camp, cooling off in the pool or watching wildlife at the waterhole.
Dinner is enjoyed at the camp's restaurant (own account).
We take a final early morning game drive in Etosha National Park, after which we journey south through Namibia back to Windhoek.
The scenic and wildlife-rich Etosha Budget Lodge Safari ends in Windhoek on day three.
