Explore Namibia with Wilderness Safaris

Skeleton Coast/Kaokoveld

The extremely remote north-west of Namibia, formerly known as the Kaokoveld, is a study of life in extremes. The desolate coastline gives way to endless ancient valleys, rugged terrain and unbroken dune fields. The perennial Kunene River to the north is an oasis in this harsh landscape.


  • The area is the most remote and unpopulated area of Namibia
  • The coast itself is probably the most dramatic feature of this landscape
  • With the help of the famous damp Namibian coastal fog, wildlife thrives here
