Khaudum National Park, Namibia

Khaudum National Park is located in northeastern Namibia, just west of the Caprivi Strip. The park is situated in the Kalahari desert and is very remote and isolated.

After Etosha National Park, Khaudum is Namibia's most special wildlife destination with big animals and predators as well as many birds.

Unlike Etosha, Khaudum National Park is much less visited and therefore ideal for people who want to explore unchartered territory. The undeveloped infrastructure and rugged 4x4 trails make for great adventures in what is called Namibia's Forgotten Wilderness.
