Central North

The central north region of Namibia is a mix of flat gravel plains and grasslands, rolling wooded hills and rugged mountains. Here you'll find Etosha National Park, one of Africa's premier wildlife sanctuaries and home to dazzling display of wildlife including the endangered cheetah and black rhino. In contrasting form, Waterberg Plateau Park to the southeast owns a slightly higher geography and therefore more rain and vegetation. The resulting attractions include Lake Otjikoto, once considered bottomless until forays into its depths revealed armaments discarded by retreating German forces, and the famous Hoba Meteorite, the largest known meteorite in the world.
