Etosha National Park is unique. Its waterhole culture forces the plains game to drink during the middle of the day when predators are most lethargic; thus it's not uncommon to have a collage of several different species in the same frame. Lions, elephants and several endemic species of antelope and birds - including 46 raptors - add to the exhilarating game viewing.

This nine-day wildlife safari also visits the Waterberg Plateau Park, a haven for many diverse and rare species of animal and bird, and the rest of your time is spent in pole game-viewing position at Etosha.

You can do the gentle drive to Etosha National Park after a morning game viewing outing and a leisurely breakfast. The eastern entrance to Etosha, the Von Lindequist Gate, is about 375km from the Waterberg area; most of the road is paved and the short gravel sections are well maintained.

On the way: The world's largest meteorite, Hoba, is on a long ring road via Grootfontein.

When you're there: Etosha has an estimated 250 lions, 300 rhinos, 2,500 giraffes, 6,000 zebras, 20,000 springbok and 2,000 elephants. This on top of a large number of lesser and common plains herds, and abundant birds makes game viewing in Etosha something special. The surrounding lodges all have private reserves with equally impressive wildlife numbers and they offer private game viewing activities into the park.

On the way: Take the opportunity to explore some more waterholes en route to your next lodge, this can take anything from 2 hours depending on how many stops you make and how long you spend at each waterhole.

When you're there: Your lodge offers guided game drives into Etosha, guided walks and rhino tracking. Or you can simply relax at your lodge and let the wildlife come to you.
