The Khaudum National Park, north of Tsumkwe, is a stronghold of Namibia’s Roan Antelope and provides protection to 385 000 ha of Kalahari Sandveld. Khaudum made conservation history 20 years before the park’s proclamation when 74 Roan Antelope were captured and transported in three groups in a Lockheed Hercules aircraft to the Etosha National Park - the first transportation of such a large group of animals over such a long distance under sedation. The park is also a sanctuary to large herds of Elephant, as well as Giraffe, Red Hartebeest, Blue Wildebeest and a variety of other species. Photo: Hugo Haussmann
