Etosha National Park is 22,000 square kilometers of wildlife wonderland in northwestern Namibia. Over the course of three days, we made our way from the eastern side of the park to the western side, driving along a huge salt flat and spotting animals everywhere:
As soon as we entered the park, we saw zebras having a meal on the side of the road.
At the Namutoni rest camp, there is a fort which now houses a restaurant, bar, and gift shops.
A family of warthogs crossing the lawn.

As we were leaving the Namutoni camp to go to the other side of the park, a group of banded mongooses emerged in front of our room and started running and tumbling around.
