In more detail

In a remote landscape accessible only by light aircraft, Hoanib Skeleton Coast Camp’s rugged wilderness is home to a rich diversity of desert-adapted wildlife and the best in the Kaokoveld. Enormous elephants, giraffes, lions, springbok, steenbok and more thrive in the vast, remote wilderness and the Skeleton Coast itself is famous for being home to shipwrecks and a playground for thousands of Cape fur seals as well as brown hyenas and black-backed jackals. Back at the camp which looks out over a thriving waterhole, the luxurious accommodation is in large pavilions with tented roofs covering stylish bedrooms leading to ensuite bathrooms with covered decked areas that provide welcome shade from the heat of the sun and frame panoramic desert views. Sophisticated communal areas include a swimming pool and sun deck, a lounge with an open fire, a convivial dining and bar area where the day’s meals are served as well as the obligatory camp fire and an outdoor living area where guests can mingle and swap stories of the day’s adventures. The wild, untouched surroundings can be explored on foot, or on game drives to search for flora and fauna a bit further afield. Bird life here is equally diverse and there is fascinating plant life in the concession. Experienced and knowledgeable guides are close at hand to help you discover how the divergent wildlife thrives in this hostile environment and you can also take day trips to explore the coast or take an excursion to a nearby desert oasis.
