Hoanib Skeleton Coast, Skeleton Coast, Namibia

Hoanib Skeleton Coast is a Classic Camp

Rugged, iconic, startlingly life-filled

Hoanib Skeleton Coast Camp is scenically located in a broad valley at the confluence of two tributaries of the dry Hoanib River in the northern part of the private Palmwag Concession. Its location thus straddles the Palmwag area and the iconic Skeleton Coast National Park, in one of the most remote areas of the Kaokoveld.

The camp consists of seven large tents and one family unit, each comprising stylish en-suite bedrooms with shaded outdoor decks. Flanked to the east and west by rugged hills, the camp looks out over stunning, starkly beautiful scenery and offers guests all the luxuries and amenities for an unforgettable stay.


  • Vast, remote, isolated wilderness offering excellent viewing of Namibia’s distinctive desert-adapted wildlife
  • Diverse activities showcase spectacular scenery, unexpected oases and enormous sand dunes
  • Seal colonies that line the endless dramatic shores of the Skeleton Coast are a fascinating sight
