Mammals

There are a wide variety of animals present in Etosha, which is home to 114 mammal species along with hundreds of reptiles and birds.

During the dry season, the numerous waterholes scattered around the park are the best place to see animals but during the rainy season they disperse all over the park to temporary water sources and to feast on the abundant vegetation which pops up after the rains.

Some of the more interesting animals are:
