Hoanib Skeleton Coast, Skeleton Coast, Namibia

Hoanib Skeleton Coast is a Classic Camp

Things to do at Hoanib Skeleton Coast

A diverse range of activities showcase the fascinating landscapes of the northern Palmwag Concession and the Skeleton Coast – including the wildlife within these areas.


Game drives

Game drives showcase the magnitude of the landscape and offer the best possibilities of seeing desert-adapted wildlife. Morning or afternoon drives are available as well as full-day excursions.


Nature walks

Nature walks from camp are an exciting way to get up close and personal with desert-wildlife. As well as the possibility of spotting big game, it is also a good opportunity to study the smaller creatures and the fascinating plant life of the concession.


Skeleton Coast scenic flights

Weather-permitting, and on a stay of three nights (or more), flights to the Skeleton Coast are offered. This full-day excursion showcases the rocky coastline with its seal colony and shipwrecks. To reach the coast you will fly over massive dunefields, the Auses Spring and the Hoanib floodplains.


Day trips to Desert Oases

Day trips to Klein Oase and Auses Spring can be organised. These oases are a fascinating respite from the dry surrounds of the desert and offer the chance of seeing wildlife coming to drink as well as plenty of birdlife. These full-day trips are done in our semi-closed game drive vehicles, with a stop for a picnic at a scenic spot along the way.


Interaction with wildlife researchers

Presentations and interaction with wildlife researchers are planned when researchers are in camp, or nearby. These include all current research, in particular the good work being done by Dr Flip Stander and his team on the unique desert-adapted lion.

A Quote From Our Guests

“ It’s so difficult to put to words exactly why after just 3 nights, it has become one of my top favourite places in Namibia and why I can’t wait to get back. ”
