Hoanib Skeleton Coast Camp has an incredibly remote location deep in the Namib Desert. The camp, however, is modern and elegant with eight luxury tents (including one family tent). Each tent opens onto a private shaded deck, where you can relax in comfort and take in your surreal surroundings.
Namibia’s starkly beautiful Kaokoveld supports a surprising diversity of wildlife. Although game drives at Hoanib Skeleton Coast are not just about ticking sightings off a checklist, but also the opportunity to explore this unique area. Imagine seeing herds of elephant, giraffe, gemsbok (oryx) or even lion in the dry riverbeds or framed by enormous sand dunes – fantastic for photography!
Another highlight of your stay is sure to be the trip to the Skeleton Coast. Your day starts with a game drive, stopping at unexpected oases, before arriving at the famous rugged coastline with its rusted shipwrecks. Visit a colony of thousands of Cape fur seals (with a good chance of seeing shaggy brown hyaena too). After a picnic lunch on the beach, you’re flown back over the dune fields.
Between game drives you can relax in your tent or alongside the swimming pool. Being so remote, there is no wifi so it really is a chance to unplug (there is a computer with internet access should you really need it). The staff here are wonderful, meals are really tasty, there’s a good selection of wine, and after dinner you can sit around the campfire and listen to stories under a sky filled with stars.
