One gets tantalizing glimpses of the Etosha Pan was one drives around on some of the side roads along the main east / west road running through Etosha National Park. There is one place, roughly half way between Okaukuejo Camp and Namutoni Camp where you can actually drive a couple of kilometres onto the Pan itself. At around 120km long and 50 km wide, it makes up a considerable portion of the park.
You get to appreciate this giant salt / clay pan once you get out there. The cracked clay has a green tinge from the algae that is on top of the clay.
