The Etosha pan is a large endorheic salt pan, forming part of the Kalahari Basin in the north of Namibia.

The 120-kilometre-long (75-mile-long) dry lakebed and its surroundings are protected as Etosha National Park, one of Namibia’s largest wildlife parks.

The area exhibits a characteristic white and greenish surface, which spreads over hundreds of kilometres. This characteristic green colouring comes from the year-round meager vegetation in the area.
