   Etosha, meaning 'Great
White Place' is made of a
large mineral pan. The
area exhibits a
characteristic white and
greenish surface, which
spreads over 4,800 km2.
        The salt pan desert is
roughly 130 km long
and as wide as 50 km
in places. The salt pan
is usually dry, but fills
with water briefly in
the summer, when it
attracts pelicans and
flamingos in particular.
