Khaudum Camp is located in the north of Namibia in northern part of Khaudum National Park. The camp has been privatised and completely renovated and upgraded in 2015. Khaudum Park is an almost undeveloped wilderness area bordering Botswana that is accessed in 4WD vehicles only (minimum 2 vehicles in a group) and offers spectacular landscapes, abundant wildlife, a place to see wild dogs and very rare roan antelopes.

YouTube video of Bushmen Living Museum:


Khaudum Camp offers six attractive, clean and convenient camping sites, all set under shady Camelthorn trees and overlooking the endless attractive omuramba. Each site has a barbecue area, wooden structured private ablutions and a shaded seating area.

Road opinions from Internet forums:

I visited the park 2 years ago. The Sikereti entrance camp was totally destroyed. ( I did camp here for a night as I had water etc.) Destruction was blamed on elephants seeking water. The trip through the Khaudom is well worth the visit. ( It was very dry and water scarce at known water holes. I saw enough game to make the trip worth while. The North camp at Khaudom Lodge is very nice. The exit road to B8 is O.K. if you keep momentum in the deep sand. I am a solo traveller and had no hassle from the park wardens to travel in and though the park. Well worth a visit.

Hi. We just made it last week. Only one car. We drove from south. Sikereti is under construction and can not be used. The roads deep sand but as it has rained a lot is compacted and we never had a problem. Khaudum camp extremely nice, nice people there but we were alone and felt a little too isolated as lions roam around. The road north from the camp, B8 i believe, is the most difficult, deep sand. Anyway the best experience in Namibia. If you are two cars DO IT. We are 65 and 70 so if you are only one car do it to but I will say that a good GPS is mandatory.
