Info. Springboks near a waterhole in Etosha National Park, Namibia
During the dry winter months from May to October, scattered waterholes sustain wildlife in the grasslands of Etosha National Park in Namibia. Large numbers of animals, such as elephants, giraffes, zebras and our springboks here, gather for a drink – making this among the best times of year to view wildlife. A medium-sized antelope, springboks are native to the dry savannahs of southern Africa where they once migrated in large numbers. Today, springbok herds live mainly in protected areas like the 22,270 square kilometres within Etosha National Park.
