They offer 6 sites situated under camelthorn trees, overlooking the omuramba. Each site has a braai area, wooden structured private ablutions and a shading seating area. Running water and a 'donkey', water to heat the water. The campsites can be accessed from South along the D3315 via Tsumkwe or from Katere along the Trans Caprivi Highway (B8) in the north. The park offers diverse, spectacular landscape and wildlife, an excellent place where guests can expect to spot a roan antelope and wild dogs. Booking in advance. (Updated Aug-2017)

Reportedly, the facilities in both Khaudum and Sikereti camps were still in despair. No water, therefore you cannot even use the toilets. Camp management hopes that they will start upgrading after the rainy season. Word has it they are planning to build a lodge in the reserve as well. (Mar-14).
The route out if the north of the park from Khaudum: is deep sand all the way out to the Tarmac. (2013).
You drive in very thick sand in Khaudum, and since you let your tyres down for deep sand you need to be careful on the rocky sections.
Also take care when you encounter soft sand and trees, for offending sticks or roots that can cause tyre ruptures.
Some forest areas can also be quite thick and the roads are curvy, so you may surprise an elephant around the corner! Elephants do push trees over onto the tracks, and there may lots of branches and sticks on the track, dropped by the elephants. (May-14).
Travelling the eastern route from Khaudum to Sikereti: This route may be impossible during heavy rains, due to damage. You can contact them on +264(0)61 284 2111 to make sure.
This is a worthwhile route as it passes through many waterholes. You may encounter large herds of elephant. This drive can take up to a day, depending on your number of stops etc. There are many lions around too.
Driving from Khaudum to Sikereti can take you up to between 6-9 depending on how often you stop. (Jun-2014).
From Khaudum to Caprivi road it should not take more than 4 hours. (Jun-2014).
Take plenty of fuel!
“Only 2 of the new campsites were operational, the rest still under construction. Very nice with ablutions per campsite. Had running water and a donkey(supply own wood) but we didn't use it as it was too hot. Didn't have to pay for campsite as lodge will only takes over in April 2015. Will be interesting to see what they charge.” - tina francis-pope, 2015/01/12
“Unfortunately the camping facilities were in despair February 2014. (Not even water.) Apparently a new tour operator took over and were waiting for the end of the raining season to start building a lodge and upgrading the camping facilities.” - Karin Theron, 2014/03/11
