Six days of safari in Etosha National Park

After such an amazing day in Kgalagadi Transfrontier Park I had high hopes for Etosha, and it did not disappoint.

If you only have time for one safari in Southern Africa, here's why you should choose Etosha.

Shipwrecks and seals along the Skeleton Coast

The Namib-Skeleton National Park covers the entire coast of Namibia, stretching 1579km from Ugab River in the south to the border of Angola in the north, aptly named for the countless shipwrecks hidden along it's seemingly endless coast. You'll also find relentless sand dunes, cute little German towns and one of the world's largest Cape Fur seal colonies.
