The Skeleton Coast in Namibia stretches from the borders of Angola in the north, down to the south of the country and conjures up mysterious visions of mist–enshrouded beaches. This fly–in safari bases itself around the beautiful and remote Hoanib Skeleton Coast Camp and access is by small plane. We recommend a 3–4night stay to fully appreciate what’s on offer. A luxury camp located on the Hoanib River bed where desert elephants and lion freely roam. Can be enjoyed as a stand–alone trip for African enthusiasts on limited time, or added to a tour of the country – ideally at the end! A true journey of discovery.
Remote and desolate coastline of Skeleton Coast and tour of Mowe Bay museum; Luxury Hoanib Camp; explore fresh–water desert oasis surrounded by towering dunes; nature walks and game drives for predators and desert elephants; interaction with specialist wildlife researchers.

From Windhoek International Airport, fly north via Doro Nawas to the remote and exclusive Hoanib Skeleton Coast Camp, where 8 large en–suite tents overlook rugged desert scenery close to the normally dry Hoanib River. The camp acts as a base from where you’ll head out and explore this isolated but diverse area – watch out for desert–adapted elephant, perhaps lion and brown hyena along with giraffe, oryx and springbok. The camp offers a range of activities (all shared with other guests and arranged once at camp to suit your interests), whether you choose to join a game drive, or nature walk to get up close with smaller creatures and fascinating plant life and to understand the desert. We highly recommend a day trip to the coast taking in the wilderness and wildlife along the floodplains and dune fields to the pounding ocean visiting a seal colony and of shipwrecks – after remains all this is what you’ve come here to see! Other activities include visiting oases to see animals come to drink the refreshing water set in the heart of surrounding dunes. You can also meet with local researchers including work carried out on desert–adapted lions who survive in this incredibly tough environment and find out what is being done to help protect them. There is a surprising variety of activities offering clients an insight to this remarkable and pristine region where visitor numbers are naturally restricted and conservation of the land, animals and local communities in nearby conservations is paramount.
Take a mid–morning flight back to Windhoek arriving at the international airport for 14h00. Note; the Skeleton Coast is not for everyone, it is exclusive, remote and harsh and most visitors that give enthusiastic feedback are seasoned safari visitors – it is not geared for large game sightings.edit me
