Etosha National Park (Namibia) is world-famous for its huge herds of wildlife and stunning desert landscapes. This is a 2-part documentary that tells the human history of Etosha. Part 1.
These are the true stories of Etosha, the unwritten stories of the people that made Etosha what it is today. Come journey with us through this rich cultural landscape and hear the Hidden Stories of Etosha told by those born here.

In part I (61 mins) Etosha is brought to life through the oral histories of the many tribes that lived and moved through here. Combining archive footage, interviews, re-enactments and animation we bring these early years to life, from a time before there was even a Park.Part I ends in 1907 when the German (colonial) Governor proclaims Etosha as the biggest Reserve in the world.
