Hoanib Skeleton Coast is a Classic Camp

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 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 continual concern and it is this that the project seeks to mitigate.

Eco-friendly practices

Hoanib Skeleton Coast is set in one of the most fragile ecosystems in the world, and therefore has been built with minimal impact on the environment. The camp is 100% solar powered. We make use of innovative eco-friendly systems to break down waste water which can then be used by plant life. We have also ensured that the design of the guest tents and main area maximise natural lighting, air movement and insulation.

Joint-venture partnership

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.

As recommended on TripAdvisor

“ Though at most times there is plenty of wildlife about, this camp is about much more than that. Morning walks, watching the light and colours change, good company and such a unique place. I would go again in a heartbeat. ”
