Khaudum is located 796km/494mi northeast of Windhoek. The park is rarely visited on an organized tour but can be explored independently on a self-drive safari. Visitors must come with fully equipped 4x4 vehicles and ideally travel in pairs. The sandy roads are challenging, and self-drive safaris should only be undertaken by travelers who have a lot of experience with these sorts of expeditions.

Tours primarily begin by 4x4 in Windhoek. The airport is Hosea Kutako International Airport (WDH) and can be found 40km/25mi east of the city.
