Etosha National Park is a nature conservation area located in northern Namibia. Covering an area of nearly 22.912 km², it is by far the best known and most important national park.

The Etosha Park was originally made a nature conservation area under German administration in 1907 by the governor of German Southwest Africa, Friedrich von Lindequist. At that time the protected area was four times bigger than that of today.

The protected area was decreased over the years until at the beginning of the seventies the Park received its present borders and was completely fenced in 1973.

The name Etosha is derived from the Oshiwambo and means “big, white place”. More than 100 mammal species and 340 different species of birds are found in the park.
