Khaudum National Park - Profile


Description:

Khaudum National Park - Profile.

Summary / Notes:

The Khaudum National Park is a true African wilderness and perhaps a bit of self-discovery. The park, situated in north-eastern Namibia bordering Botswana, has less than 3 000 visitors annually and there are few tracks through the deep Kalahari sand. More elephants than people frequent the park. It is a refuge for African wild dog and roan antelope. Lion, cheetah and leopard are also found here.
