Trip Report Etosha Park, Namibia in January- Please see our photos for proof!!

Jump to last reply

I just wanted to reach out to anyone that might be worried/concerned about going to Etosha during January/rainy season. My husband and I were really concerned and almost did not go because of all the opinions on how hard it would be to see wildlife, how hot it would be and how bad the roads could get.

I just wanted to say we had a fabulous time. The thunderstorms were scattered, actually cooling the park down and we saw an amazing array of animals, as you can see from our photos. We spent 4 days in the park- 2 at Mushara lodge, 2 at Okaukeujo. We also felt like we had the park to ourselves since it was low season, not to mention Namibia is beautiful when it is green. We were in Etosha the first week of January, hoping we would at least be early on in the rainy season.

There were no animals at the waterholes. None. We just drove around and found them all over the roads. Rhinos, Lions, Wildebeest, Zebras, etc.

I am posting albums of Damaraland, Swakop and the Dunes later, but the first album Etosha is done for anyone that wants to look. Thanks!!
