In Namibia where the rest of the country is desert, Etosha provides a more conventional safari area, with large amounts of game. Vast dry savannah surrounds the salt pan where flamingoes breed; expect to see lions, elephants, black rhinos and giraffes gather at waterholes. Camps are simpler, most have pools but not all have a/c. Namibia.
Best time: May to October when there's no rain and animals congregate around waterholes.
Access: Charter from Windhoek's Eros airport (1 hr) or drive (5 hrs)
