A Springbok Among Devils' Thorn Flowers, Etosha, Namibia

Location: Etosha National Park, Namibia (18° 31′ 12″ S, 16° 16′ 30″ E)

Camera: (analogue) Canon 500N with slides and scanned

Etosha National Park was the largest game reserve in the world when it opened. However as a result of political changes, it is now only a quarter of its original size. Despite that, there is a bewildering range of animals which tend to concentrate around the waterholes within the park. The dry season is the best season to see these animals as they come to drink at the waterholes.

I went to Namibia on my honeymoon and I loved it. My husband and I went to the Etosha Park. It is great to see all the animals. I just found a new travel site,

I haven't been there, but read that The Park was asserted by some German governor. Moreover for political reasons, the surface area of the park was reduced by some percentage.
