Skeleton Coast Camp


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

Unfortunately the camp closed down in 2011 due to issues with the concession agreement with the government.

This remarkable and incredibly remote camp actually used to be a pretty simple affair, a kind of cosy version of an Antarctic research station. The emphasis was not on the lodge but on the access that it gives an amazing 16000 square kilometres of stunning wilderness. Inland trips provided game-viewing including desert elephant, giraffe and oryx, plus visits to authentic Himba villages, whilst out on the angry Atlantic huge seal lion colonies lie amidst shipwrecks and whale carcasses.

Skeleton Coast Camp was one of the most fabulous and unusual wilderness experiences on the continent. Virtually all the guests we met in camp were repeat visitors ... not the super-rich, but people who had discovered quite how amazing this place is and just couldn't do without it in their lives.

The area can presently only be fully accessed as part of a private overland expedition, please refer to Mowe Bay Bivouac for more information.

It is also possible to access parts of this area when staying at the upmarket Hoanib Skeleton Coast Camp, which is under the same ownership as the original camp.
