4Cs Projects at Hoanib Skeleton Coast
In line with Wilderness Safaris' long term commitment to the Government of Namibia's far-sighted Natural Resource Management policy – an approach that Wilderness embraced from the outset – the Palmwag Concession is a joint venture between the company and the neighbouring Community-based Conservancies; Anabeb, Torra and Sesfontein.
Namibia Desert Lion Conservation
Hoanib Skeleton Coast Camp supports a unique population of desert-adapted lions in the surrounding harsh desert environment. The “desert” lion is a prominent feature in Namibia and is highly valued by the growing tourism industry however the conflict between lions and the local people is of growing concern.
Hoanib Skeleton Coast is set in one of the most fragile ecosystems in the world, and therefore is being built in an eco-friendly manner with minimal impact on the environment.
A joint-venture partnership ensures that the local community of Puros benefits from ecotourism and is thus able to contribute to the sustainable development of the area.
