No other Namibian national park offers as many adventurous challenges as the Khaudum National Park. The roughly 300-kilometer-long road network winds through unspoiled wilderness and dry acacia woodlands on meandering sandy roads. Khaudum National Park is located in Namibia's northwestern region in the Kalahari and is one of the country's most remote areas.
The Khaudum National Park is 3842 km2 in size but has seen little development for tourists. The surrounding area is sparsely inhabited. To the west and north of it, Kavango peoples, primarily of the Gciriku tribe, dwell. Ju/'hoansi-San dominate the area south of the national park. This constellation of national park and surrounding conservancies allows visitors to interact with animals while also learning about local culture.
Tour text information
In 2013, a large part of the area formerly known as the “Caprivi Strip” was renamed Zambezi. This region stretches out like an arm between Angola, Zambia, and Botswana, touching Zimbabwe at the confluence of the Chobe and Zambezi Rivers. It’s a tropical array of wildlife and bird species and offers great fishing.
The area is characterized by an abundance of water, wetlands, large floodplains and thick Mopani woodland. All the parks are well worth a visit and, with over 600 bird species, are a real paradise for bird watchers. Game is plentiful and hippos and crocodiles laze around on the riverbanks.
Some of the locations we visit during our tour:
