Home Accommodations Skeleton Coast Camp

Skeleton Coast Camp



Location
Skeleton Coast, Namibia

Namibia's Skeleton Coast is one of the planet's most striking places. Named for the many shipwrecks that have washed up on these isolated beaches, nearly 660,000 acres of the national park have been set aside for an exclusive safari experience for those who want to really get away. It is a wild, desolate and uninhabited region, and stunningly beautiful in its austerity.

The camp is a 12-bedded accommodation with six luxury tented rooms on raised wooden decks. All have en-suite bathrooms with flush toilets, hand basins and showers. The rooms are attractively furnished incorporating locally found natural materials, and all rooms have overhead fans and 12-volt lighting. The main area incorporates a dining room, lounge and bar area surrounded by glass concertina doors to allow for uninterrupted views of the desert beyond. In fair weather, guests dine al fresco under an ancient leadwood tree, around the campfire under the stars.

A stay on the Skeleton Coast is not a traditional game-viewing safari. Freshwater springs permeate the barren sands to create rare oases in the desert that sustain pockets of wildlife, but it is not the central feature of a visit to this remote and stunning natural area. Springbok, gemsbok (oryx), the rare desert elephant, cape fur seals, brown hyena, jackal, ostrich and occasionally even cheetah eke out an existence in this rugged terrain, alongside desert-adapted vegetation such as welwitschia and lithops, the succulent "flowering stones." Activities include full-day safari drives in the park, as well as cultural visits to authentic Himba settlements just outside of the park. The Himba are some of Africa’s most nomadic tribal people.
