In a remote area of the Kaokoveld, with gravel-strewn plains and dry riverbeds that draw fascinating wildlife, lies Hoanib Skeleton Coast Camp. Game drives explore this isolated area, moving along the riverbed’s narrow ribbon of vegetation, where a surprising wealth of desert-adapted animals can be found; in camp the research centre provides even more insights.
Eight large en-suite tents (including one family tent) includes a king size or twin beds with mosquito nets, easy chairs, writing desk, tea & coffee making facilities. Send you afternoons lounging on your private veranda whilst enjoying a cool drink from your personal bar as your watch the ever changing desert scene before you.
The family tents consist of two tents both with en-suite facilities, one king size or twin beds, with the second tent habving twin beds only.
The main camp includes a lodge pool for lazing next to on the hot afternoons, a camp waterhole in which to view the desert wildlife coming down to drink. A outdoor lounge, dining area and bar with views of the waterhole.
The camp also has a camp fire in which to enjoy a pre dinner drink with your fellow guests.
Nature drives showcase the magnitude of the landscape and offer the best possibilities of seeing desert-adapted wildlife.
Nature walks from camp take in the magnificent surrounds as well as offer a glimpse at vestiges of the Strandloper (Beachcomber) lifestyle from hundreds of years ago. It is also a good opportunity to study the smaller creatures and the fascinating plant life of the concession.
On a stay of three or more nights, full-day excursions to the Skeleton Coast are offered. The fascinating 4x4 trip to the coast takes you via the wilderness of the Hoanib River and floodplain, the dune fields and Klein Oasis, while the Skeleton Coast itself reveals huge Cape fur seal colonies and shipwreck remains. Weather-dependent, a flight back to camp can offer a magnificent perspective of your journey from the air.
A trip to the desert oases offers an inviting respite from the dry surrounds of the desert and the chance to see wildlife coming to drink. These full-day trips are undertaken in our semi-closed game drive vehicles, with a stop for a picnic at a scenic spot along the way.
