Day 4: Etosha National Park
Etosha was first established in 1907, when Namibia was a German colony known as South West Africa. At the time, the park’s original 100,000 km² (38,500 mile²) made it the largest game reserve in the world. Due to political changes since its original establishment, the park is now slightly less than a quarter of its original size, reaching its current surface area of 22 912 km², but still remains a very large and significant area in which wildlife is protected.
