Der Etosha-Nationalpark ist ein 22.935 Quadratkilometer großer Nationalpark im Norden von Namibia und bedeutendstes Schutzgebiet des Landes. Der Park liegt am Nordwestrand des Kalahari-Beckens und umfasst fast die gesamte 4760 km² große Etosha-Pfanne. Von der Südgrenze des Parks sind es 400 Kilometer bis zur Hauptstadt Windhoek und von der Nordgrenze 125 Kilometer bis zur Grenze nach Angola. Der Atlantik ist von der Westgrenze fast 200 Kilometer entfernt. Der Name „Etosha“ stammt aus dem Oshivambo und bedeutet so viel wie „großer weißer Platz“.

Etosha National Park is a national park in northwestern Namibia. The park was proclaimed a game reserve on March 22, 1907 in Ordinance 88 by the Governor of German South West Africa, Dr. Friedrich von Lindequist. It was designated as Wildschutzgebiet Nr. 2 which means Game Reserve Number 2, in numerical order after West Caprivi (Game Reserve No. 1) and preceding Namib Game Reserve (No. 3). In 1958, Game Reserve No. 2 became Etosha Game Park and was elevated to status of National Park in 1967 by an act of parliament of the Republic of South Africa which administered South-West Africa during that time. Etosha National Park spans an area of 22,270 square kilometres (8,600 sq mi) and gets its name from the large Etosha pan which is almost entirely within the park. The Etosha pan (4,760 square kilometres (1,840 sq mi)) covers 23% of the area of the total area of the Etosha National Park. The park is home to hundreds of species of mammals, birds and reptiles, including several threatened and endangered species such as the black rhinoceros.
