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).

Travelling the eastern route from Sikereti to Khaudum: 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.
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).

Driving from Sikereti to Khaudum can take you up to between 6-9 depending on how often you stop. (Jun-2014).

A traveller reported in January 2015 that new campsites were under construction (buildings were up but not connected to a water supply yet). Only the old ablutions were operational and there was water. (Jan 2015).

 Travel Tip!

Beware of elephant, lion and hyena in the camp at night! Take plenty of fuel!

“new campsites are under construction(buildings up but not connected to water supply yet) only old ablutions operational. Water was available. All waterholes in area are running with Solar panels.” - tina francis-pope, 2015/01/12

“Unfortunately the camping facilities were not in a good condition February 2014. Water but no wood for the donkey. 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
