The western part of Etosha Park used to be a restricted area and has only been opened to the public a few years ago.
The western part of the park is accessible through the Galton Gate. Today it is open to all visitors who want to discover the secluded foothills of this spectacular park. Visitors to Etosha West can look forward to the magnificent scenery of this remote landscape in northern Namibia, characterized by lush, hilly terrain and reddish-brown soil. This part sharply contrasts with the white, dusty clay soil of Etosha East. The area has numerous waterholes that attract elephants, rhinos, leopards, lions and a variety of wildlife. Do not miss the opportunity to catch a glimpse of the rare Hartmann's Mountain Zebra and the black-faced Impala.
