The Heat in Etosha

By | June 3, 2011

Etosha means ‘place of dry water’. The reserve covers an area of about 22 750km² and consist of semi-arid savannah grassland and thorn scrub. The pan itself is about 5000km² and has water only after very good rains, which isn’t very often. From June through to November it gets very dry and the animals then go in search of any water they can find.
