Etosha Pan

The vast Etosha Pan, an immense, flat, saline desert, is the essence of Etosha. Now, in the dry season, everything, from the elephants to the grasslands, seems cast in Etosha’s white, chalky dust. The pan is mostly dry, like now, but after a rain it will have a thin layer of water. It makes up a large part of the Etosha National Park.
