Wildlife at Hoanib Skeleton Coast

The 450 000ha Palmwag Concession borders the vast Skeleton Coast Park. Part of the Namib Desert, it is home to rich diversity thanks to the early morning fog and the transient Hoanib River that provide water this incredibly harsh environment.

Freshwater springs support healthy populations of Hartmann's mountain zebra, giraffe, gemsbok, springbok, kudu, comical meerkats (suricates), inquisitive ground squirrels, black-backed jackal and small spotted genet. Even elephant thrive and lion, leopard and cheetah occur.

Palmwag has the largest free-roaming population of desert-adapted black rhino in Africa while the famous Cape fur seals in their thousands live on the Skeleton Coast shore.
