I’ve been fortunate enough to contribute to this excellent magazine since the very first edition, and in those early days one of the regular features was an in-depth look at one of the world’s great national parks, exploring both what they offered photographers and some tips and hints on how to get the very best out of visiting them. As reviews of destinations as diverse as the Kruger, Yellowstone, the Mara and the Cairngorms came and went, there was one corner of Africa that I always felt had been overlooked. Fortunately, I have been given the opportunity to state the case for the crown jewel of one of my favourite corners of Africa that is Etosha National Park in Namibia.
With magical light, uninterrupted horizons and waterholes attracting a plethora of species, it’s plain to see why Etosha National Park is the jewel in Namibia’s crown. Mark Sisson elaborates on why this location should be on a wildlife photographer’s radar
