The Etosha Pan is the largest salt pan in Africa. In the language of the Ovambo tribe, Etosha means ‘great white place’.
San Legend has it that the information of the Etosha Pan resulted from a small village being raided and everyone slaughtered except the woman. One of the women was so upset by the death of her entire family that she cried until her tears formed a massive lake which eventually dried up and left behind a huge white pan.
Etosha is home to an abundance of African wildlife including the endangered Black Rhino.
