Hoanib Skeleton Coast Camp

Place: In a remote area of the Kaokoveld, with gravel-strewn plains and dry riverbeds that draw fascinating wildlife, lies Hoanib Skeleton Coast Camp. Explorations of this isolated yet diverse area take place via nature drives along the riverbed’s narrow ribbon of vegetation, where a surprising wealth of desert-adapted animals can be found, while the research centre provides further insights. The desolate Skeleton Coast with its shipwreck remnants and noisy colonies of Cape fur seals is accessed either by a fascinating drive or flight, depending on the weather. Accommodation: The eight large en-suite tents (including one family unit), the main area and pool look out over rugged scenery: a wide valley that slopes down to the almost-always dry Hoanib River.Purpose: This camp is fully solar powered, is a joint venture with the neighbouring Conservancies of Anabeb, Torra and Sesfontein, and hosts researchers committed to conserving desert-adapted lion, brown hyaena and more.Unique Selling PointsDry riverbed yields good desert-adapted game: from elephant to occasional lion and brown hyaenaAccess to Skeleton Coast with its huge Cape fur seal colonies and shipwreck remainsInsights into the area and its wildlife at the Research Centre
