Etosha Salt Pan

The Etosha salt pan once was a lake covering a huge portion of Etosha National Park.  Now it is dry except during heavy rains.  The pan is a vast expanse of nothingness.  We saw a few animals along the edges, but most stay away because there is no water.

We didn't see any animals on the pan, but we did take the chance to practice our jumping skills.
