Dunedin Star Bivouac

...

... is located in the Skeleton Coast North area in the Northwest region of Namibia.

This camp is one of a handful of bivouac locations used on our Skeleton Coast Expeditions, a family of private guided safaris though the remarkable wild landscapes of this fabulous corner of Namibia.

Dunedin Star Bivouac is usually the third stop on an expedition. It resumes the journey north, traversing a particularly intersting field of barchan dunes, visiting an abandoned amethyst mine and continuing on to the remains of an ancient Strandloper settlement, the Bushman people who wandered this coast for many thousands of years, but who finally died out around 1980. After that we pass a remote oasis and some frightening quicksand beds, where we stop for lunch.

Crossing some awesome coloured gravel plains, we stop by at Agate Mountain to see the unusual rock formations, before heading back down towards the coast. At Cape Fria we encounter an enormous and incredibly impressive sea-lion colony, before continuing north to a shockingly remote campsite close to the remains of the famous Dunedin Star wreck.

Depending on the particular campsite chosen, you may be able to find some of the fantastic wind-blow agate pebbles for which this particular area is known.

The previous stop is usually Sarusas Springs Bivouac.

The next stop is usually Kunene Dunes Bivouac.


For the trip overview please refer to Skeleton Coast Expeditions.
