Hoanib Skeleton Coast Camp
In a remote area of the Kaokoveld, with gravel-strewn plains and dry riverbeds that draw fascinating wildlife, lies Hoanib Skeleton Coast Camp. Game drives explore this isolated area, moving along the riverbed’s narrow ribbon of vegetation, where a surprising wealth of desert-adapted animals can be found; in camp the research centre provides even more insights. The unforgiving Skeleton Coast, with its shipwreck remains and noisy colonies of Cape fur seals, is accessed either by a fascinating drive or scenic flight, depending on the weather.
Eight large en-suite tents (including one family tent) and the main area and pool look out over a wide, rugged valley that slopes down to the almost-always dry Hoanib River.
Fully solar-powered, Hoanib Skeleton Coast is a joint venture with the neighbouring conservancies of Anabeb, Torra and Sesfontein, and hosts researchers committed to conserving desert-adapted lion, brown hyaena and more.
Best Time to Visit Namibia
Namibia is one of the sunniest countries and is an all year destination, summer is very warm and sunny with cold nights. There is always a chance of spectacular thunderstorms during winter months. Wildlife viewing in all parks, but especially in Etosha, is best in the dry season from June to October whereas the wetter season is better for scenary, bird watching and photography. June to October is usually the peak travel season and requires planning in advance.
It is your responsibility to check the entry visa requirements with the individual embassy of each country you intend visiting prior to departure.
