Khaudum National Park

Tsumkwe, Namibia

Khaudum National Park is an isolated Nature Reserve situated in the Kalahari Desert at the west of the Caprivi Strip in northeast of Namibia. It is a very remote and inaccessible reserve but is home to some magnificent animals such as the lion and the hyena. The park also has a campsite for visitors. Khaudum was established to protect the lifestyle of the San Bushmen who have inhabited the Kalahari Desert for thousands of years. Today, it is the most pristine nature conservation area in Namibia, falling within the Kalahari Sandveld, 3842 sq km in area.

The park is very rich in game. During the winter months, one can view all sorts of wildlife at the waterholes, like large herds of elephant, giraf, wildebeest, many antelope species, hyena, lion, leopard and more than 300 different species of birds.

Khaudum National Park is wild and offers basic or no services at all, aside from a handful of very primitive camps.The camps in Khaudum are not fenced, so adventurous visitors can expect elephants, hyenas or lions to visit their campsites and should be prepared for such an event.
