Etosha National Park is one of the best Fame Reserve in the southern part of Africa. It is part of the Kalahari Pan which was a lake that has dried up thousands of years ago. There are quite a number of waterholes within the pan that attracts a tremendous diversity of wildlife especially in the cooler months. It is also quite unique as it has a long fence along its 850 km boundary to control the spread of diseases among the animals.
