Namibia's Skeleton Coast is one of the planet's most beautiful places. Over much of the past decade, access to this private area within the National Park has been restricted. However, in April 2000, Skeleton Coast Camp was opened as a 12-bedded luxury tented camp and offers superb 4 or 5 day fly-in safaris to this incredible area, with guaranteed departures every Wednesday and Saturday.
Close on 300,000 hectares (660,000 acres) of the National Park has been set aside as an exclusive safari experience for those who want to really get away! It is wild, desolate and uninhabited - and stunningly beautiful.
Because of the uniqueness and vastness of this area, most activities are done in 4x4 vehicles that are closed to the elements. All vehicles have pop-top roofs and sliding windows to enjoy the fine weather.
There is however plenty of opportunity to walk and stretch the legs too. Activities include either full-day nature drives or walks with a picnic lunch, returning to camp in the evening, or half-day nature drives or walks returning to camp for lunch and venturing out again in the afternoon.
Excursions may include visits to the clay castles of the Hoarusib River, Rocky Point, the roaring dunes, lichen fields, seal colonies, Himba villages, shipwreck sites and secret water seeps that attract wildlife like oryx, springbok, giraffe, ostrich, brown hyaena, jackal and other smaller mammals.
Walking also plays a part in the activities; due to the pristine nature of this area many parts are accessible only on foot, as vehicle tracks can damage the environment. Many specially adapted species of plants like Lithops and Welwitschia can be visited in this way.
The terrain is rugged and harsh, hence Skeleton Coast camp will be enjoyed by those who are looking for a true wilderness experience, in some of the most spectacular scenery in southern Africa.
