This central section of the Skeleton Coast
is by far the most accessible.
The most pristine and interesting area is Skeleton Coast Park
, which may not have the drama or remoteness of the fabulous Skeleton Coast North
, but it does at least give an impression of these hostile shores.
The seal colony at Cape Cross
is somewhere people also like to visit.
Further to the south, Swakopmund
is an old German port which is not without its attractions, whilst nearby Walvis Bay
is more of an industrial port but has interesting wildlife in its large lagoon.
Inland the most interesting area is Twyfelfontein
, one of the best locations for rock-art and desert elephant.
The areas around Brandberg
contain some remarkable scenery, but tend to be lesser visited, unless you intend to avoid this section of the coast and take the inland route south to north.
