At the Petrified Forest, the trees are about 250 million years old and were deposited in the area by the flood which came down from areas further north. The fact that trunks do not have any branches or roots suggest that these trees grew somewhere else and were carried to its present location by rivers or floods.
The trunks were deposited in silica rich environment and were excluded from contact with oxygen which prevented decay. During the course of time molecules of silica penetrated the wood and replaced wood molecules. At present, around 50 trunks can be seen on the site with the longest being more that 30 meters long.

Day details: Full day in the Etosha National Park to explore. Keep your eyes open and your check lists ready.
Etosha is one of the largest and best game viewing parks in the whole of Africa. The reason is in the Ovambo name Etosha, which means ‘huge white area’ or ‘place of dry water’, depending upon whom you ask. For most of the year a vast shallow pan, which was once a lake the size of Holland, shimmers a glaring bright white from crystallized salt across its entire surface. Surrounding the pans is a variety of grass and woodlands amongst which live a wonderful variety of animals and birds, insects and reptiles.
The lodge is a fantastic base to explore the Park. Etosha National park is one of the finest game reserves in Southern Africa and is dominated by a massive mineral pan. Etosha means ‘Great White Place’, and the pan was formed approximately 1000 million years ago. A San legend about the formation of Etosha Pan tells of how a village was raided and everyone but the woman slaughtered. One woman was so upset about the death of her entire family she cried until her tears formed a massive lake. When the lake dried up all that was left was a huge white pan.
