Namibia National Parks

The National Parks of Namibia
Did you know that 18% of Namibia is made up of national parks, game reserves and areas that are specifically designated as wildlife areas? These areas, which are fiercely protected by locals and by the government, make for truly spectacular 4×4 self-drive destinations, with spectacular natural scenery and abundant wildlife.
Carel Pienaar, Namibia 4×4 hire experts and local tour guide, says, “Namibia’s national parks are a huge draw for visitors and tourists from all over the world. Whether you’re heading off on safari, following elephant migration routes, tracking local game or marveling at the spectacular scenery, you’re sure to have an unforgettable experience in Namibia. Check out our rundown of the most popular national parks.”
Skeleton Coast National Park
This environment is not for the faint of heart, nor is it for those who like to stick to tourist-dominated areas when they’re on holiday. Even the name itself strikes fear into some travellers! But fear not – the skeleton in the name tends to mean whale skeletons, rather than any kind of human remains. This dramatic area runs along the Atlantic Coast and features washed-up shipwrecks, glittering beaches and a surprising array of animals. In fact, it’s one of the most diverse game reserves in all of southern Africa. Here, you’ll find rhino and elephant species that have adapted to desert life, as well as lions, cheetahs, giraffes, zebras, hyenas and springboks.
Bwabwata National Park

Situated in the north east of Namibia, this national park is a must for those who want to follow elephant and buffalo migration routes. During the dry season, you may be lucky enough to see huge herds of these animals migrating to pastures new in order to find water and food to survive.
The park is also home to thousands of indigenous people, which marks it out from many of the other national parks in Namibia. They still practice their traditions and customs, and you can visit the tribal lands on your 4×4 self-drive trip.
When it comes to wildlife, you’ll find plenty here to impress. The big cats are right at home here, with leopards, lions and cheetahs in abundance. You’ll also find some quite impressive birds in this national park, including the African Wood Owl, the Grey-Headed Parrot and the Western Banded Snake-Eagle.

Etosha National Park

This park is home to a spectacular salt pan this is so enormous, it can be seen from space. But don’t be fooled into thinking this park is nothing more than a salt flat – the greenery and wildlife here is abundant. There are also some wonderful high-end campsites here, so your 4×4 Namibia trip will involve a little luxury!
Wildlife spotters will find the endangered black rhino here in this park, as well as some of the largest elephants in Africa. Lions, leopards and giraffes are also common here, and the game reserve is home to more than 340 species of bird, including the ostrich.
